Last weekend we were in the Bay Area on a whirlwind trip of look-see-buy: we needed a small 4×4 in a big way. We bought what we needed, along with clothes for school (ack!) and reams of Ikea ideas for another day.
I was exhausted in the way that hauling 3 kids everywhere solo is – snap, buckle, unbuckle, ‘GET IN NOW!’, snap, buckle, unbuckle, ‘DAMMIT!’, schlep, schlop, cry, wail, snap, buckle, unbuckle, ‘it’s okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, honey‘. Crumbs, smears, juice stick, stuck, boogers, diapers, wet pants, ‘NOOOOOOOO!’ – it’s never ending, constant, draining, sucking, drying, taking, fetching, unyielding, demanding, NEEDING.
I almost became one with my car seat as I slid down deep in it, unspeakably happy to be back. Home.
I enjoy our home, I enjoy this life here.
Enjoy. A Photo Essay.
