Reply Taos September 8, 2013 at 12:00 am OMG!!!!! LOVE it! Ahh stella. Reply Amanda September 8, 2013 at 5:26 am I find this story remarkably comforting. I must have a newborn because I also find myself thinking, that’s what I’m supposed to be and do too. Where has my focus gone? Oh, to the same place my sleep has… Reply Babs September 8, 2013 at 3:54 pm No words necessary! Great post. Reply vic September 9, 2013 at 11:42 am Always with a smile. Reply Rita@thissortaoldlife September 9, 2013 at 12:52 pm This is awesome! When my daughter was 6, she told me she didn’t want to be a mommy because mommies have to put their kids before their art. When I suggested it was possible to both create art and mother, she said, “But you don’t.” Stopped me cold. I didn’t know until that moment how much she took in. I’d like to say that I was different after that, that I’ve been able to give her a model of how to be a woman in which I’ve been able to equally honor both parts of myself, but I haven’t. I will say it was the beginning of a long and on-going conversation. (She is 15 now.)
