It is time to take 5-minutes and just write. Off the top of my head, no editing, so second-guessing….ready set go
Imagine life without Boo. I cannot.
Imagine life with a “normal” Boo. I cannot.
Imagine life without Allie, I cannot do that either.
Truthfully I can imagine a life without either of my girls. The life we had before. With my guy, my dog and my tent. It was easy. It was fun.
We would put the tent and dog in the car on Friday afternoon and have no idea where we would end up. We just knew we had to be back by midnight on Sunday.
Too much has changed since then. We don’t travel as much. We don’t have our ‘couple’ time. When Allie arrived things changed. As they do with the first born. We had five years adapting to this new life, just got our rhythm never imagining another child.
Then Boo came and life changed again. Sometimes it changed in ways so overwhelming I want to put my head down and just cry.
But then Boo gives me her belly laugh or and all the difficulties imagined.
Because this is our life and I wouldn’t want to imagine it any other way.
