The weekend before classes started, Oscar and I got to hang out together while his papa went camping with some friends. It was nice to spend some quality time with him before going back to work full-time.
Darin referred to Oscar as “his boy” shortly after he was born, and I liked the sound of it. Our boy. And he is such a boy. He reminds me of a description in Chaucer of a horsely horse, a horse that is the very definition of a horse. Oscar is a climber, a jumper, a fearless explorer. He is also smart and funny and sweet.
In the coming months I will be away from him more than I have ever been. The busy start of the school year already has me reeling (and neglecting this blog!) and I’m not sure how I’m going to get it all done. Most of all, I’m a little sad that I won’t be there for every moment, every expression, every laugh, every gesture. However, I do get the special privilege of coming home at the end of the day and seeing that little face. What more could I ask for?
