This! (A placemat tale...)

Ever since he first went to a restaurant, Diego’s mom has torn off the back of the top and bottom double-stick strips that adhere these placemats to a table. Sometimes - as in the case at this Mexican food joint - the mat stays firmly in place allowing Diego a clean surface to eat off. Other times, the mats get bunched up and crumpled due to his overzealous attention. Still, I love these little placemats and now I especially love hearing Diego’s little voice announce each animal and object printed on them. Lion! Giraffe! Owl! Leaf! I think here he was enthusiastically telling Nonnie about that leaf, and my heart opened to his joy the way leaves await rain.
