A room where anything can be anything and anyone can be anybody. It is a dreamy place where a fairy house can be built, lemonade sold, and gymnasts crowned. Ella spends more time in here than Vivian and most times Ella likes to keep the door closed. I am not sure if it is to keep Vivian out or to have the freedom and privacy to express herself. When I am blessed with the opportunity to over hear her I feel a deeper understanding of who she is and what she is working out in her mind. It is very endearing. Children have a lot to process and lucky for them they get to play it out with their own scenarios. You might just say this is Ella's work room.
Vivian likes to be close by to her Mama - which is age-appropriate, she is two and a half. She is the best helper and loves to water the flowers. I like having Vivian underfoot - I will miss that deeply one day. I am feeling a strong urge to have another baby. I don't think that feeling will ever go away. I can't always listen to my heart - I also have to listen to my body and my husband. I am treasuring the time I have with my little ones now and I am enjoying the sleep that their ages have granted me.
I spent much of the afternoon sitting with a bunch of books and creating a new rhythm for us. Perhaps I'll share what I come up with in a future post. So many things have changed - a new house, a new season and two wee-bit older girls.
I feel inspired - how about you?
