Happy Cinco De Mayo a la Peanut

Ohhhhhhh Peanut -

Dadda and I spent the evening up at Vallarta watching their big Cinco de Mayo celebration.  We didn't really "participate" but enjoyed seeing our friends do so well on a busy, rainy night.  The rain we're getting is perfect.  Steady, slow, cool...just what your Peanut Tree needs to thrive.

As we sat with our food in the noisy restaurant, Dadda and I reflected on how much fun we had with you - all the time!   You LOVED our goofiness, and actually brought it out of us at the most unexpected moments.   One of the funniest moments I remember is doing an elaborate dance/song number for you in our kitchen, while you were in your high chair - to a song that went something like "C'mon ride the train, oh ride it, whooooooh whoooooooooh, c'mom ride the train, yeah ride it....whooop whoop!"  You were so entertained.  MORE MOMMA!  MORE!

Making you happy was so easy.  Just a smile.  A hug.  A kiss.  You are my lesson for the world.  You have so changed the way I view my life.  Folks, it's not about the money, the house, the car.  It's about the love you create and give back.  It's about the Peanut Effect.

Sharing a picture Dadda took of you and your friends enjoying snack time at school in November (Peanut is to the left with the green sleeves and crazy hair!).  Love it.

Baby, I love you.  To the moooooooooooon and back.

  1. Well said. Many people would be happier if they realized what is truly important and lived by that instead of getting wrapped up in superficial stuff. Thank you for spelling it out so clearly:). We all need to be reminded every once in a while!
