Mother says with more than a little edge to her voice..
"Kevin when are you going to put your shoes on by yourself, like a big boy."
He turns those enormous brown eyes on me and says..
"You know, I’m still quite small."
Yes my love you are. Thank you for reminding me to treasure these little things I do for you because quite soon you’ll be grown and my heart will be longing for those big brown eyes that light up when I enter the room.
