The little one helped gather his clothes for bed then laid them out on the living room floor. He followed me into the bathroom and swished the bubbles as they rose in the tub. He swished more bubbles after I put him in the water. He pushing the Lego boat back and forth before he’d had enough. I washed his hair then lifted him up, wrapped him in a towel. He ran to the kitchen with the towel trailing behind like a cape.
I’m giving this yearlong project a spin. Undoubtedly, I will fall and pick up again. Knowing this makes it easier. Still, I plan to show up to record a short photo and story of my day. You’re welcome to join me. I’d love it really. We can give each other high fives and geek out with a hashtag (#ayearofus), not because everyone is doing it, but because we’re doing it, together. Showing up every damn day to make this creative habit real.
