It's gets a little serious up in here, doesn't it? If you've met in person, you know that I laugh loudly and can be a bit of a goof. It's not all theology and poetry. I don't spend all day spouting off about feminism or the broken, beautiful Church.
We live mostly within the ordinary rhythms of parenting little people. James turns three next month, and Dylan will be five after that. We read and cuddle. We hit the Y and pre-school drop-off. We potty train and play outside. We draw and spell and swing and mediate conflict. Oh, how we mediate conflict.
We remember how to cook for ourselves, to eat in a civilized manner after a summer of dining hall sloppy joes, standing on benches singing You! Can't Ride in My Little Red Wagon! and Praise The Lorrrd, Praise Praise The Lorrrrrrrd!
At the end of most days, Jim and I put them to bed with kisses and Come Thou Fount, crash on the couch, and watch tv. I wish I could tell you that I read lots of books, but it's mostly just the ones people send me. I rack up library fines like it's my job, because let's be honest: I've always loved tv, and in this season of life, finishing anything in one hour is closer to my speed and desire.
So! Imma let you in behind the veil. I mean to be myself here, and I don't live all in my head or spirit. Far from it.
