The Road to Sixty – Day 29
So in the midst of cleaning and straightening out the garage front the summer activities. I got the bright idea to go up in the attic to see what was there. I remembered that we had put the Fisher Price rocking horse up there and I wanted to get it down for Mila Dean at some point. So I pulled the panel down and climbed in there.
There it was, that little Rockin’ horse that I remember being much bigger. It’s been up there probably 25 years. It is still in great shape, just needs a little cleaning.
But that wasn’t all…
Up there was the walker that Danae used nearly 30 years ago, also the Graco Swing that we put her in as a baby.. As i look at that swing, I wondered how did we put that baby in there! look how rickety it is!
Then I remembered…That was the best of that time AND she lived!
I ‘d be lying if I didn’t say my mind drifted back quite a bit! I remember that baby in the swing and we would crank it up and she would sleep, laugh and cry when it stopped.
I remember putting her in that walker and she would scoot around the house as she learned to walk. I imagine she had a few meals on that tray.
That horse was a favorite of hers, she would ride and ride and ride, making cowgirl sounds, “yahoo” “giddyup” “woah horse” she was a cowgirl!
Can’t wait to see Mila Dean try this out, it will be a few more months…
Thus I get it ready for her!
What a memory!
