So yes, I'm moving into a new phase with my youngest, a phase that allows for a bit more wiggle room on my end, but it's just a short breather before I dig into the trenches again. We'll bring our adopted son home and start working on giving him all those things that young babies get- things he missed out on in an orphanage. Eventually, we hope to have another baby as well.... and then I can re-visit all my beautiful cloth diapers ;) In the meantime, I'm gonna make my man a nice dinner. I'm gonna pick my dusty guitar back up. I'm gonna cut someone's hair. I'm gonna read a book that isn't about parenting. I'm gonna have coffee with my dad. I'm gonna sit down at my sewing machine. And if I'm lucky, I'll nurse my son down to sleep.
OH, MOTHERS OF YOUNG CHILDREN, I BOW BEFORE YOU IN REVERENCE. YOUR WORK IS MOST HOLY. YOU ARE FASHIONING THE DESTINIES OF IMMORTAL SOULS. THE POWERS FOLDED UP IN THE LITTLE ONES THAT YOU HUSHED TO SLEEP IN YOUR BOSOMS LAST NIGHT, ARE POWERS THAT SHALL EXIST FOREVER. YOU ARE PREPARING THEM FOR THEIR IMMORTAL DESTINY AND INFLUENCE. BE FAITHFUL. TAKE UP YOUR SACRED BURDEN REVERENTLY. BE SURE THAT YOUR LIFE IS SWEET AND CLEAN.--JR MILLER
