I wrote this draft of a blog post…
Anna’s new questions, “What’s that?” and “Who’s that?” and “Come sit with you?” and “Do you love Mommy?” (Which is her version of I love Mommy.)
Daydreaming and processing with John over feedings and tower-building.
Walks in the cool evening while Jules naps in the stroller and Anna walks 20 feet behind talking to herself about the feather she found.
When I pay attention, call it grace, and say Thank You, ordinary things can become special things… even if colds are a current thing and I cried a little over spilled milk today.
…and then we had a week of kids (and myself) being sick, and most of this was quite tested.
I’ve been honest with God, my closest friends and my spouse and that has been the most helpful of survival tactics.
