Other Bits of Life

For all of the talk in my last post of being in a time out from life, I am always a bit shocked and confused by the fact that . . . when BIG things happen – death, trials, new lifethe world doesn’t know to stop. Life doesn’t pause it’s usual demands. Daily living just . . . keeps on happening. It always surprises me. I always feel like EVERYTHING should know to suck in its breath and hold it for awhile.

And yet . . . kids still strap stuffed elephants to their backs (elephant jetpack), the first day of school still comes (9th, 8th, 6th, 3rd, and 1st), toddlers still dump everything out of cupboards.

So yes, I’ve been on a pause from much of real life. And Mette has come – changing the world. And yet, life just sucks you in, gives you a quick nod of acknowledgement, “Yes. You are big. You have changed everything. Welcome to you. Now hold on tight. ‘Cause there is living to be done here.”, and rushes on.

I'm so sad that I won't get to snuggle Mette before she turns into not a newborn. Daisy looks like a full grown woman in that photo in the purple shirt! And looking at all of your kids together makes me feel completely in awe and wonder. I love them all so much!

"Yes. You are big. Welcome to you."

Hahahahaha!

We have managed to offset our children almost perfectly. Except that we do both have 1st graders. Heaven help us! :)

I also want you to know that I occasionally trip on "Mette" in context of "Jesse." Knowing what I now know about his name, I start to say "Mett" or "Jess-eh." Not really. But just for a second. :)
