Cattails




















You know how they say you fall in love when your baby is born?

Well, I did. Both times. And the really good news is that it didn't end there.

The greatest thing about babies/toddlers/kids is that they become new little people practically every day. This comes with some sucky things like having to make yourself a permanent fixture at the shoe and sock department and/or recreating the wheel at dinner time because those chicken fries he loved so much yesterday are avocados wrapped in bean sprouts as far as he's concerned today.





















But. But...with all that you also get the birth of "snuggle time" and family music hour and I Love It When You Rub My Back Mommy and every other special in between the chaos moments that stir your heart and cause you to fall madly, deeply, and irrevocably in love with these little yahoos all over again. Which is good. Because Lord knows we mommies need all the endorphins we can get. Apple martinis can only carry us so far through the day.
