I can’t believe I forgot to tell you that my baby, Luna Pie, is walking. She’s been doing it for close to 2 weeks now.
As it turns out, I missed her first steps even though I was in the same room as her when she took them. I was folding laundry and the TV was on. My hands were on the laundry, my eyes were on the TV, Luna Pie was standing next to me and all of a sudden she was in front of me taking the last of what had been probably 10 steps. I hit rewind in my peripheral memory vision and realized that her head had never left what is standing level for her. I was so bummed. I wasn’t even watching something good like, Let’s Make a Deal. I don’t even like watching TV during the day. I blame it on the laundry.
Now, for your viewing pleasure…
Her joy and perserverance remind me that you should focus on the journey, not the destination.
