New Parents

Interior of nursery.

New Parents
The simplicity of parenthood
lost itself for a time
amidst the tempest of
philosophies, and 
well-meaning advice

until a cry
and a need
for a diaper change
blew the worriers
back to basics

  1. Thanks, Lori. I’ve come to rely on you to get my regular perspective check. I do love how our children themselves can bring us back to basics.

    • Thanks, Joanie. I was just wondering how many baby blankets you’ve knitted in the last year. It’s lots, I know!

      I look forward to seeing you tomorrow! 😀

  2. excellent! great play with words, admirable wit, and strong insight. (can you tell I really like this one?) Parenting infants wasn’t long ago for me…
