Dear Sprout, Happy Valentine's Day


Dear Avalon,

Today is Valentine's Day. We are sick. You have far more energy than I do. I'm thinking of a quote from one of my favorite authors, Catherine Newman, that goes "The trick isn't to love your life when it's perfect. The trick is to cherish the messy beauty." 

Messy beauties lately include falling down dirt paths, swallowing salty sand, wiping yellow boogers, eating raw pasta out of your sensory table, feeding yourself yogurt and having new teeth pop up like spring tulips in a mouth trying to make words. 

For me there have been a lot of food aversions and nap-times spent adding items to virtual shopping carts I will never check-out of. 

I love you bug. Dada loves you too. He doesn't even usually get his shoes off until you're in bed because he comes home in such a hurry to be with you. 

We're so glad you're here, that's all. 

Love,
Momma

  1. The food aversion comment made me want to say something about morning sickness, but I don't ever want to be that obnoxious commenter ;) I hope you both feel better soon!
