Litmus Test

Ivy, moving

We're TV-free but still like movies. While putting together a lasagna in the kitchen. Ivy and I watched Matilda on my laptop.

"Mom, does Matilda's dad love her?"

"Well, honey, I think he probably loves her, a little bit, but he's not a very nice person. And he doesn't know how special she is."

"You know how special I am!"

I sure do and if ever there was a defining moment that I felt like a good mom, it was then.


PS When you're moving it's not so weird to take pictures on furniture outdoors. (Ivy's crown hand-made by Erika aka Inspired Mama.)

  4. For just a moment, I could see a teenage Ivy, dressed in her funky bohemian style, legs kicked up on the arm of the chair, happy and loving life. It's like you captured a future moment. She's just so beautiful.
