I've been very heads-down lately. At about 4:30 this afternoon she asked me, "Can we go on the back porch and paint dragons?" I feel like I'm always saying I am thankful for her for this and this and this, but what child reminds you suddenly that you used to love to paint, that this wasn't a random afternoon request? This used to be me and art was my activity of choice for years. May she never feel she's interrupting me with these asks, and at heart they are reminders--and may I never feel the same toward her. #motherhood #letthembelittle #toddlerart
