Titles of blog post are a funny little thing aren’t they? For instance today you might read Snow Angel and assume my daughter is a well behaved, sweet, little angel. And sometimes she is…she really is. However, her behavior can also be described as difficult & insistent, or that other word I like to use to describe my Sunshine girl- PASSIONATE. It seemed a little harsh to title today’s blog Mommy’s Little Devil.
There are days my friends when she is difficult and I am tired and the combination of those things creates a perfect storm resulting in photos that look like these taken during last nights dinner.
Truthfully the trouble she makes is still funny, because at 2 she’s still cute and everything is still an accident and I am still learning how to parent her. So here we are somewhere between working out our kinks and figuring out how to co-exist in a world that includes us, but was created for her. Our whole lives revolve around her. My work, Matt’s race to get home, our collective decision to find a home in the garden state. She needs a backyard with grass, good schools, and a place to call home. Or maybe that’s just what we want for her- what’s the difference? So our weekends are spent in the car, with an agent, searching for the perfect home, for her. But there’s more, now there’s more than her to dream of and for. And though we didn’t find the right house to hang our dreams on this weekend, we’re searching … always searching for perfection. A perfect somewhere to be imperfect in.
