My youngest in
construction worker goggles
and reflective orange vest,
adorned with a tinfoil-like astronaut helmet
and matching gloves.
Another day in Wonder Woman go-go boots,
an over-sized cowboy hat ,
and Superman costume.
Or a time after bath,
rubber bug rain boots,
and freshly-cleaned birthday suit.
So thankful for a basket of dress-up goodies
in the corner of our playroom.
So thankful to witness the freedom and joy of childhood
in life’s everyday moments.
