It was a hue that you just don't see sold in stores. She must have made it herself or maybe it was knit by a friend or maybe she bought it at a street fair.
I wish I could knit more. I just don't have time. Where in the world did all the time go? My boys stand up my side and heads in the crook there at my shoulder. It's an awkward jigsaw piece but it fits.
I wish I could read more. I collect books and like how they look on my table waiting, but reading takes a commitment I just can't give right now. That makes me sullen-y.
I pushed Ivy in a stroller down the street today. A girl wearing her baby in a moby wrap passed me and all in one little thought I smiled and then hoped she didn't judge me for pushing my kid in a stroller because if she only knew. I used to babywear, too I wanted to whisper trailing off.
I pushed the stroller and noticed that I'd probably be getting rid of it sooner than later. As has been happening with most of our baby to toddler stuff. Before I know it she'll be out of the big car seat and that's like the last of the gear. Then I'll have no kids in car seats. And instead they'll start needing their own cars. I stopped that thought process right there.
This moment. My hands are in all the jars and my feet are in all the corners and we are all overlapping lines. Soon enough it will be different.
For now this is how we'll live it.
