on my windows and the sliding glass door – where little boys love to watch noisy garbage trucks come and go
on the fireplace glass panel – where little hands bang on the panel to make the loudest, booming sound – a homemade instrument that is so enticing for little ears
on the cabinets – where two boys with messy hands like to open and shut drawers and pull out the tupperware
on the shower door – where soapy water is splashed over and over again
on the front door – where a peanut butter handprint was made by a little boy itching to leave the house one morning
These little handprints continue to grow in size in our house. Where there was one small-sized print, there are now two – a big and little – that each day grow a little longer and a little wider.
