unrolled : wonder wednesday

toilet paper

aaahhh, yes.  look familiar?

does this reflect the current state of affairs in your bathroom?

or a distant memory making you miss much simpler days?

perhaps it perfectly describes how you feel in your parenting:


a bit of a mess.

every stage of parenting brings challenges and accompanying disarray.

and we try so hard to keep the paper rolled on straight.

i wonder why we don’t relax and just be where we are.

perhaps like me you look to the future, and long for the days your kids can fend for themselves.

the days you get to leave the house in clean clothes and spend more time on yourself.

and then those days come and you wish you could send them back.

throw up your arms and scream to the universe: ‘is this all you’ve got?!’

because we can do hard things.

enjoy it.

embrace the unrolled toilet paper of life and {smile}.

someday you’re gonna miss this.

    One of my favorite toddler pictures of Cherie is of her sitting on the kitchen floor, totally wrapped up in wax paper. The memory still makes me smile.
