muse memoirs

 

this evening you danced for me.   it was just you and i and the setting sun softly shining through your bedroom windows.  you spun around the floor, jumped on your bed, and laughed.  you told me that one day you will be a genius ballerina.   i told you i believe in you and know that you will do so many wonderful things.  and then all at once the door opened, we heard the baby crying, and our special moment ended.  your baby sister had woken up and needed me.  i know you understand that i can not spend as much time with you as i once did.  that i have to take care of your brother and sister as well as you.  once upon a time, it was just you and i all day long every single day.   you will always be my first little love.  and i cherish these special moments between you and i more than you will ever know.

Please journey over to the Muse Memoirs website to see what all of the ladies shared this week.

 

a normal day

 

On October 18th, my daughter was born and I became the mother of three children. Hundreds of miles away, on the same day, another baby girl was born and another woman added the third child to her family. We were complete strangers at that time, but our love of photography and family brought us together. We started to have a conversation about motherhood with images, because we tell stories with our cameras. Since some tales are so similar, and some are not, we decided to collaborate and share a photo a week from a normal day as a mother to three.

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”     – Mary Jean Irion

You two.  It has been quite the ride to arrive at this place.  I am sure you would have gotten there eventually.  Yet, ever since the baby was born your connection has grown by leaps and bounds.  You not only play and sleep together, but you trust in and rely upon one another. And, like most siblings you also know exactly how to push each other’s buttons.  The satisfaction you receive once you have pushed those buttons is a sight to behold.

She writes. She fills books and books. She draws and reads and writes. I am in a state of wonder and pride when I see her inner thoughts, put out there on paper. Such a beautiful child.

You help me in so many ways.  Like today, when you brushed my hair and helped me pick out my outfit to wear.  And you are always there to help me take care of your baby sister.  But the extent of your help surpasses all of this.  You remind me to slow down, be present, and just give my love.  While your sister napped this morning, I decided to clean and do laundry.  And I would have gotten a lot of stuff done had you not asked me to snuggle with you on the sofa.  So the house is still a mess and the laundry didn’t get done but something much more important was accomplished.  Thank you my sweet boy.

Saturdays we all sleep in. It is heaven. And then my big girls make their way into bed with us. And Bea will read. And we’ll all cuddle and play. And I swear, this is what it is all about. This is all I need to be happy and whole.
