My Facebook cover photo is of my kids. My profile picture is of me and Noah from my show. It hit me that this is what I have chosen to represent "me." My blog is one thing but Facebook, my personal space, and my mom-ness shimmied in without me ever thinking about it until now. I imagine if I had a Facebook timeline cover photo fifteen years ago, it would be of me in a play or with friends at an outdoor concert. That's what I loved to do back then. And if I wanted, I could still do and then show off all of that now. But I pick my kids because they are what I want to look at when I log in to Facebook. And they make me who I am as much as I made them them.
The sky is beautiful today, so bright with white stretched-cotton-balls clouds and Ivy sighed that she doesn't like that the sky is so blue. She'd rather it be pink. "And I'm going to need a very tall ladder to climb up there to change it."
If she could I believe she would. And maybe she will.
