Five Minute Friday - Welcome

We have once again made it to Friday, which means that it's FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY!!!!

The rules?  Write for 5 minutes without stopping to edit or fix anything.

The topic?  Welcome!

Ready? Set?  GO!

They are there...


Behind the door...

On the sofa...

In the driveway....

Or in the yard.

They come running when they see you...

A full tilt run...

Their little legs pumping...

Their little faces smiling.

They are little and warm...

And slightly sticky.

They're sweaty and they smell of grapes and peanut butter and apples

And dirt.

They leave little handprints...

On your work pants

When they ram into your legs

And hug them silly.

Sticky little spots to remind you of their love

Long after they are in bed.

They are cherubic

And mischievious

And lovely

And who could ask

At the end of the day

For a better


Ding!  Let's see what we have now!

Come join me!  It's fun, and it only takes 5 minutes!


  1. I LOVE how this is written!
    I could imagine little faces and the sticky hands and bodies. Welcome home hugs (or goodbye hugs) from little ones are the BEST!
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. OH, that was so sweet! I love those welcomes too. Nothing else can lift your heart like that! :o)
