Growing Together (and seven impossible things before breakfast)

Was it really September since I’ve been here last?

“I can’t believe that!” said Alice.

“Can’t you?” the queen said in a pitying tone. “Try again, draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.”

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said. “One can’t believe impossible things.”

“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

My first impossible thing of the day is that I’m here in this space writing words.

My second impossible thing of the day is that I’m over at Raising Humans with a guest post this morning for her “Growing Together” series. Can I gush about Tricia for a moment? Something I didn’t realize when I first started blogging is that I would make connections. Genuine, authentic connections with other mothers and writers. The kind of connections that blossom into friendship, and you wish you could call them up to meet for a cup of coffee but you live in different parts of the country (or world) so instead you find yourself thinking of them sometimes within the folds of your days. You remember their words because they’re just like reflections of your life, your struggles and joys in parenting, your growth as a mother, a woman, a human. Tricia is one of these bloggers for me, and if you don’t already follow her I suggest you remedy that a.s.a.p.

I’m looking forward to sharing this story today. Now, off to believe five more impossible things this morning.
