These boys hold their own. They manage their day in a way that surpasses my expectations. A mix of planning and living in the moment. Yesterday, we went for a routine ultrasound (its still a girl!), and the way they behaved was unprecedented from my experience thus far. I mean they behaved, in two tiny square feet of space, in a dark ultrasound room, all the while calming a very nervous baby brother. This, was a change. A change I welcome with open arms! And now I am noticing all the changes that have happened while I was busy surviving. They do dishes! Miles has grown two inches since December! They bake and sell things! They solve problems!
And thank goodness too, because I need all the help I can get.
One thought on “holding their own”
Lovely! I had a moment like this today too – my kids on the floor making happy mother’s day cards for grandmothers…quiet…listening to music…it was like – wow – they’re doing stuff on their own!
