Moment by Moment

Monday, July 11, 2016

I had one of those moments recently where my mind had a random realization. The kind that lasts for only a few seconds, but it's such a foreign thought that it almost feels out-of-body. 

Silas and I were on the dining room floor playing with his dump truck. Rob was in the kitchen taking down our kitchen cabinets.  Silas heard the shop vacuum turn on, so he jumped up and stood by the entryway to see what all the sound was about.  

In those quick three seconds where I watched Silas observe the commotion, I thought to myself "I'm just winging this parenting thing.  Silas is completely dependent on Rob and me.  It's a good thing he knows how to be a toddler because I'm definitely clueless as to how to be a 'grown-up', much less his mom"

And then Silas ran back to his dump truck, the thought flew out of my mind and we continued playing on the dining room floor

But it's true.  I have no idea what I'm doing. Everyone has their own piece of advice to give for what is "right", but at the end of the day, I'm just living out this parent-hood thing moment by moment and it's my story.
