I have several things I would like to comment on in the next few days so check back in if you are interested! I would like to share a couple of thoughts about these amazing fundraisers (see post below!) and about this experience in general. When I am upset I become a little bit withdrawn, but lately I have been talking to a newfound friend who is going through the same thing that we are. I am also listening to some great music by The Avett Brothers right now (and eating a Watchamacallit -- but that is not super relevant) and getting fired up. Which always makes me a lot more wordy. When I was in high school and college I would right myself letters to cheer myself up when I was going through a tough time. Lame, sure. But who is better qualified to know exactly what you need to hear than yourself? And no one appreciates my sense of humor like I do! I recently remembered those old letters and it made me smile. I might have to put that back into practice. The point to all of this is just, come back. An actual post will be made soon.
In the meantime, I would like to share my favorite moment from yesterday. Wave had thrown up all over herself on the way to get Harper from preschool so I had massive clean up to do while taking care of a pitiful baby and dealing with Harper while she felt like being something of a challenge yesterday. I was at the end of my rope. After dinner I had jammied Wave and was getting ready to put her to bed when I looked out the back window and was appreciating the beautiful weather. The light in the back yard was gorgeous so I ushered the girls out to enjoy just a moment. The girls were getting along beautifully (anything to stall bedtime, yes?) so I took a few pictures of them together. A book that Harper loved that Wavy is totally into right now is Goodnight Gorilla. I was lucky enough to catch them talking about it. Please note the faces below. They are reenacting their shared favorite part -- the zookeeper's wife turns back on the light to find the gorilla in her bed, smiling at her.
Wave is being the wife and Harper the gorilla. Sisters. Oh man, I do love this life.
