Me: Oh yeah?
Princess: It's just soil and dirt.
Me: We are planting tomatoes this weekend.
I am learning how true this is. Day by day. Baby steps. I, too, keep trying on that cape that I really wanted to make fit. But as each day as a mother of 5 goes by I am coming to terms with the fact that there are more fun things out there than wearing that silly cape. I am finding real JOY in my current role. More than ever! I can feel my soul evolving and I enjoy it. And it's bigger than a matter of dishes or making beds. Those things help my sanity a bit, but they don't bring me the full joy I'm seeking. Most of the journey has involved me being patient with myself. That's something I had been unwilling to do up to this point.
SO, a lot of discovery in the 11 weeks since this beautiful baby has come into my life. Maybe I'll have it all together by the time she is aware of things. Or maybe I won't, and that's ok too.
