"I'm helpin' you momma. ...Can't you tell?"
As number 7, she doesn't realize how great she has it.
My first was diligently trained not to get into things I wasn't willing to put away 30 times a day.
That's the mother I was 10 years ago. I'm pretty sure it was the mother that child needed.
Does this child need something different? I don't know. I do know that she gets an older mother,
a seasoned mother, a more relaxed mother... and definitely a distracted mother :-)
There are things that this season of mothering brings that surprise even me - I surprise me.
I look backward into the yesterdays of my mothering and I am amazed at the metamorphosis
that has taken place.
I don't know if I'm doing it better now. Probably just different.
But I'm having fun. And I like it :-)
