It was an amazing experience! It’s funny that I studied Fiction and ended up writing Nonfiction. 🙂

Parenting is Hard and I Don’t Like It
Yes, very true. We need to be able to share.

I am so glad you love the parenting. It is very unnatural to me; a constant battle to be kind. Even now I am struggling not to be angry about crumbs and drips and kids who refuse to listen the first or second or third time.

I look forward to each task they learn to complete on their own. Each bit of independence. But I am also working hard to enjoy the other moments. Books are almost always a win. Sharing stories fills my heart. 🙂

I think, here, there have been longer stretches in between the beautiful moments despite my constant reframing. The kids are pushing boundaries, I have been dealing with some background noise, and there is the running to and fro. Mama, we need a break.

Sarah! How wonderful to see you here.

Oh, I know just what you are talking about! That first child. We have no idea what’s coming. I wish I had, but the romance did make pregnancy sweet.

The wisdom makes the journey worth it for me. I have grown so much. I do wish I could set it aside. Afford childcare. Leave for weeks at a time. But I hate missing those moments. There is a balance even to the dislike and resentment.

How has your relocation gone?

Good luck with this, Mary. It’s absolutely okay to take that break. I go through stretches where I’m only posting announcements. Others when I’m writing poetry or fiction. Right now I just need to write anything. I hope whatever writing you do (whether you share or not) soothes you.
