Two boys. That hardly makes me an expert, but I still have a lot to say (any of my friends could tell you that). I’m that mom. The mom that thinks about everything her kids eat, watch, hear, play with, all of it.
But, being a mom of growing children is sort of like planning a wedding. On your wedding day, you are an expert. You know just what songs got everyone on the dance floor and that the Macarena gets everyone to sit down and eat their salads. Then, the reception is over and all that you learned is now irrelevant. A few months later, all that valuable information is forgotten. Being a mom is like that. On your baby’s second birthday, you are an expert at being the mom of a one year-old, but your baby isn’t one anymore. Aaaaa!
There are a few lessons that transcend age, though. Maybe the details are lost, but any mom knows that her child really only needs love and peace. And nothing helps bring peace while you are trying to talk on the phone, cook dinner, and do wash like a good toy for your little one.
I want to capture the stories I hear and the lessons I learn. I’d like to share my favorite things with you and, hopefully, you’ll share some of yours with me.
So, let’s chat about kids and their world. Maybe we’ll get some peace, love, and toys for our efforts!
