So, yes, they are still quite young and being able to get up, dress themselves, make their beds, and play independently while hubby and I start our morning is only a start. But it feels like a small piece of freedom after the demands of past few years, a chance to find myself again. It has led me to start thinking about how much less they need me now and how that will only increase as they continue to grow.
Other than motherhood, I've had dreams for myself - interests, passions, and hopes of more school. Right now I don't know what I will decide to do with this sense of finding myself again. I've had plenty of ideas, that's for sure.
