Baby brother wrestles with molars
September 20, 2009 § 2 Comments
It’s true and I had forgotten it would eventually happen. We’ve had such a smooth time with baby brother and now that he’s in so much pain and it seems that all four molars will make their way through his skin and peek out to wave a mighty hello, I feel bad for him. I feel bad for me, too. I’m only human and hearing the frustrations of a mouth on fire coupled with the ups and downs of a very perceptive two year old is a lot. It’s a plate full. (I am excited to let you know that I sold another podeagi! And, I’m doing more and more alterations and repairs from my home. It feels good to work on the sewing machine and help other families.) I let few know the ins and outs of my days for the simple reason that I don’t need the conversation. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good conversation but with all the stuff going on around the house right now all I need is to move on. Yup. Get through it. Certain things aren’t gonna change. We are how we are and it’s nobody’s fault that we’ve been partnered with the kids/parents we’ve got.
Let me slow down here. I’ve been considering for a while that when we are born into this life, we have great potential and a set capacity. We don’t know either. Nobody knows either. We can get to know ourselves until the cows come home (this saying is one of the funniest American sayings I’ve heard ever) but the fact is that knowing the why (why am I this way?) is little help (remember, it’s my blog and my opinion). Knowing how we are today is a bringer of change. Awareness is change. Movement. Life. Breathing in a new understanding expands our knowing into ourselves, which can then bring out our potential. Parts of us we didn’t know were a part of us. How far can we change? Dunno. There’s a lot we don’t know. Getting stuck in the “why don’t we know?” stagnates progress. How are we today? That can change and morph into something new every time we bother to ask.
