No, she did not wear this smocked dress to the park. She is, after all, a third born
Today has been a great day with the children. I got to spend two whole hours at the park with just Lydie (and many quality moments with the boys this afternoon, too). The park time was a rare treat for my little third born and me! I never realized how quiet the park is from 9-11 am. Every child seemed to be a toddler. And every other mom seemed to be pregnant. I felt like a rookie mommy again. I forgot how first-time-mommies ask so many questions to complete strangers about child development. I heard, "Is she talking yet?" "How long does she nap?" "What percentile is she on the growth chart?" I remember being the same way with Jaybird and a little with Toot. I remember a time when getting to Gymboree and playgroup were the biggest stresses of my week. I am not saying those things aren't legitimately stressful. But it is funny how demands change your perspective. I loved my faux first-time-mommy day! What great memories it stirred!
I am a seeker of truth, made alive by Jesus Christ.I am blessed with an amazing husband,two sweet sons, and a side-kick daughter, all whom I adore. I really cherish my time with family and friends. I have moved from Atlanta to rural Alabama about 4 years ago. But currently we are comfortably settled in a suburban area in my hometown. Things that I enjoy are interior decorating, crafting, reading, classical Christian education, baking, journaling, traveling, hosting celebrations, and collecting quotes and verses. I struggle with over commitment, being patient (and seeing beyond the here and now), creating my own little idols, and many, many other things that keep me at the foot of the cross where I belong. Life is never, ever dull with us! Praying that you will find honesty, encouragement, creativity, and a heart that, even amidst constant struggles, always desires for Christ to be glorified!
