Delayed Gratification

Baby Shaw's Lessons Learning

(By Laura)

Life’s all about compromises and trading one thing for another (as well as love and joy and heartbreak and perseverance and creating, etc.). 

I don’t remember what I was responding to when I wrote that several months (ages?) ago, but I have some thoughts on it now. It’s a little hard to focus when my ears are straining for sounds (of the baby blocks away, safe in the tricycle with Dad at the handlebars, while I’m “off duty”?!) and my mind skips. 

Raising this boy is a moment-to-moment grunt with jumps of joy mixed in, hormones and hope holding us to the labor as we both love it for what it is, and anticipate relief with the passing of this phase.
