Close Your Eyes

"So Mom? Close your eyes right now. I have a surprise for you."

"I can't close my eyes right now baby, I'm driving."

"And that wouldn't be safe?"

"Right. But we're pulling in the driveway so I can close my eyes soon."

"The surprise is in the house so when we walk in just close your eyes then."


"Surprise! I made you The Empire!"

"It's perfect."


  1. Oh, that made tears jump to my eyes.

    You will love having this blog later, L, and later does come.

    For my birthday, my family gave me all of Baby E's posts hardbound...I read it all the time. I love it.

  2. You give him the universe, he gives you the Empire. Good trade, I think.

  3. he is so sweet and that is no surprise

  4. The arch of my foot aches just looking at that picture! I used to step on my brother's Legos all the time when we were kids. This post seriously made me smile in the most "I loved being a kid" kind of way. Aches in arches and all!
