Eyes Wide Open

Amy first kiss 001

Eyes Wide Open

Sweet little Amer’s very first kiss
Quick, get a camera to document this!

Davey Bargetzi was awfully cute
Brown eyes and almost a birthday suit

How many girls can say their first action
Was a photo op for Mom’s satisfaction?

Completely true story. Like most of my life, staged in front of a live audience!   8^)

Posted at Open Link Monday at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads, and, if I remember, I’ll also link it to dverse on Tuesday.  IF I remember, and that’s a crapshoot these days…  Peace, Amy

    I love you Amy. :) That’s because I love this!!! Tender love in the budding!!

    You reminded me of a couple of very sweet moments. One was when I was in the first grade (we didn’t have kindergarten in our school): (the second Senryu poem) Two Special Little Girls

    The second moment my daughter related from London where they live. KP, our four-year-old grand-daughter, wanted to invite two of her boy friends to her slumber party. Very quickly there was a Mom and daughter first talk about boys and girls.

    Yes, the nightcap is adorable! How amazing that this was caught in a photo too. Sorry for your string of troubles, Amy and feeling unwell. Just getting back into writing again after a long break myself…need you in fighting form so I can join forces with your passionate causes, rants or whatever you’re serving for the week!

      Thanks, Laura. My daughter, whose real name is Laura, was a big help, along with Lex, my cat Diva (sitting on my lap and nuzzling my face). I rise, I fall. I get back up again! Coming your way now…

    That’s just wonderful. Yes, in most instances Mom’s good anticipation can be treasured for life. Not many are quick on the draw though. Great capture Amelita!
