Haiku Friday and U2

Happy B-day to my husband. He's 33 today.

To celebrate, we're going to dinner with The Baby and my parents. Afterward, hubby and I are going to go to the Imax theater to see the movie U2-3D. I'm ridiculously excited to see it. When I was in college I saw them in concert three times, once in the front row! My friend and I had nose-bleed seats and band security came over and told us that we couldn't sit where we were and asked me where I wanted to sit. I said the front row, and ta-da!, he gave us tickets! It was great!

I'm trying something new, Haiku Friday. Hope you like it.

Haiku Friday

Little boy, strong will
He sees me walking away
And screams in protest

One arm up, reaching
I turn to reassure him
And hug him to me

Small fists full of hair
He holds on in his own way
I pull him closer

He squeals, and is off
Crawls where his mind propels him
But looks back and smiles
