Kids Eye View

My son is constantly teaching me how to be a kid again. He shows me about what is important, and reprioritizing things for me. He likes to take his shoes and socks off and wiggle his free little toes. He runs around the house with beads, a diaper and a pair of boots and laughs at himself. He giggles right before he eats something really yummy. He has a trust and adventurous spirit; that together, could terrify any mother. He doesn’t give up; he just sits back and ponders things until he figures out a way around the obstacle. He dances freely when he hears music. He says “bed” when he’s tired and has had enough.

I am constantly in awe of him; how sure he is. How he feels and takes everything in so deeply. And sometimes I just have to follow suit. I have to take my shoes and socks off and stomp in the puddles. I have to color outside the lines. I have to take naps when I’m tired and cry when I’m cranky. I have to be more trusting of others and with life in general. It’s amazing how much a one year old can teach us. Even if you don’t have a child, I dare you to sit and watch one for a bit. They are like these pure little beings full abandon and life.

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
