Quite imperfect

Mothering the boys is the most volatile thing I've ever experienced.

I long for intentional days spent together learning, laughing, eating, and resting well.  This is what I mean by striving for motherhood as a creative act.  But, if I'm honest, the actuality of what this looks like for children ages 1 and 3 is much too messy for me.  Way too organic and adventuresome for comfort.  I'm the learner in this relationship, for sure.

I have further thoughts but I've got one with snot running down his face and another diving into the fireplace so I've got to go.  This is what I mean.
