We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

In Which I Brag About My Kid
Emily has started talking. I probably shouldn't be surprised; she's known how to use that voice since day one. But, I have to admit, I'm a little impressed. Not yet one, she can already say some words and a few phrases:
- Mama! (she yells this at the top of her lungs)
- Hi Dad! (we made her say it 3 times 'cause we thought it was a total fluke)
What started as a way to communicate with far away friends and family has become a place for this horse trainer/HR manager turned stay at home mom of 3 girls to hold on to a bit of her own identity. It's my take on the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the thoughts and feelings, the mistakes and triumphs of this family as we bumble our way to eternity.
