So, just for today, so you know I’m alive and well, I’m just going to share a thought that is totally fluff:
Six months after Honeybean was born, I went for my check-up and brought her with me. My midwife commented that Honeybean had “biscuit feet,” and I’ve never forgotten it. Mostly because it was cute of my midwife to notice, and because it’s true. My daughter has high and wide feet – and as a baby, you can imagine that they might look like little breakfast biscuits.
And cute little champagne grape toes.
These are the things that make my heart warm up – probably much like a … biscuit.
And these are the blips on my Mom Radar that give me pause to think about what makes my family uniquely us – and at the same time, what connects us to every other family and makes us the same.
This is why I love what I do – connecting with other families through our passions: homebirth, homeschooling, homesteading (I’m sensing a pattern here). And then, appreciating the different things that make us all uniquely part of the big ol’ puzzle of life.
Look, I didn’t promise Shakespeare … I said this was fluff.
