are you a mum? or are you a da?
have you noticed that since becoming a parent that you react much differently to things that you wouldn't have previously?
you have?! me too!
being a mum has definitely changed me for the better, bringing about more patience, a deeper sense of humility, and a bit more empathy than i had previously. mostly though, becoming a mum has made me weepy. yes! weepy! i tend to get emotional at the simplest of occurrences. i think it's definitely a good thing, especially since i feel i am much more in tune to the needs of others (especially wee ones).
now peacock what's this post really
about, you ask? well, since we're chatting about bugs, das and mums, it's certainly a post about my bug. she excitedly rang me today after school with some exciting news: one of her teeth has become loose! now while this may not seem like a post-worthy event to you, dearest of readers, to me-- it is a very big deal. my little bug is not so little anymore. sure, she's growing up (and it really is a shame) but this is the beginning of HUGE things for bug. more adventures, methinks. and more sass, more fun, and growing up. and that's not always so easy, is it now?
so today, i donate a happy little tear (or two) to kinks-loving, bowie-lyric-knowing, johnny-cash-singing bug. grow, sweet bug, grow!
