Another Attempt- Macro Monday
My title could be very telling if you allow it some depth of reason! Are Macro and Mom synonyms? I wish I was a centipede.
One of the major struggles I have in my life is to remember to stop and smell the flowers!
I look at everything through a “macro” lens of critical thoughts and suspicion. It is such an easy thing to do especially with small children.

EXCUSE This House
Some houses try to hide the fact that children shelter there: Ours boasts of it quite openly, the signs are everywhere.

But I sat down with the children and we played and laughed and read, and if the doorbell doesn’t shine their eyes will shine instead.
For when I have to choose between the one job or the other, though I need to cook and clean, first I’ll be a mother.
