My dream world would be living in some small house with lots of property somewhere out in the forested mountains with walls filled with shelves filled with art supplies. Where I spent my time wandering with the kids outside enjoying nature and then creating with them inside the rest of the time. Yeah, that’d be a dream life for me.
I pretty much try to do that now. Except my real world includes a whole crapload of work raising these munchkins. But after what I’ve been through the last 7 months, I even enjoy the work part of being a mom. Dishes and laundry used to be pains and I can honestly say, I’m grateful for that work now… it means I have people to love and serve. They sit in my house with me every day, endlessly loving, viewing me as I am… seeing all my good and accepting the bad without judgment. Kids are amazing. All of us parents are very lucky.
