Trying out a quick write and some poetry today.
My husband approaches tentatively.
He knows what he's asking.
At first, I say no.
But then there is this tapping.
Oh that tapping on your heart.
You want to ignore it.
I had been reading on hospitality.
I never thought I'd be called on in this way.
So--he moves in.
The kids are overjoyed! (A new playmate!)
It's like a dance at first. Are you a grown up? Are you a kid?
What do we do with you?
After 30 minutes, I want to move out.
But I breathe.
Try to remember what it's like to be 23.
Emerging into the world for the first time.
We can teach. Encourage.
My husband says it best.
"This is what it's like to have 3 kids!"
(Totally squelches any desire to have more kids.)
So I embrace the humor.
I' m living in an episode of "My Three Sons!"
