morning memories

Still in his pjs he does the morning arm check – yep, still there with fingers attached.  This is worth a clap or two. The garbage truck is heard and because it’s a warm day we head out to the front deck to gaze and sigh about it’s absolute awesomeness.   Back inside to look at a few books.  Goodnight Moon is always a favorite.  It’s as good upside down as it is right side up!
