My father was an Irishman,
with a touch of English in his birthright.
But, basically, he was Irish, like his mother.
He often quoted us little ditties like this one.
"You gave me the key of your heart, my love;
Then why do you make me knock?"
"Oh-that was yesterday, Saint's Above!
And last night-I changed the lock!"
These little ones have MY heart and
I will never change the lock.
When I look at my daughter Mimi's two boys
I see my father's side of the family.
My father would have loved these children so.
Does this, our Big Boy E, not look
like a little Irishman through and through?
This is his school picture from this year-Age 4
And his brother is coming right up behind him.
Our little Charles-In-Charge- Age two!
They are such sweet little boys.
Smart as whips and fun.
I love this expression on Big Boy E's face.
It is one I have seen before but
was never able to capture.
Is that not dear?
Have a wonderful Sunday!
