Can we talk about something? Can we talk about how I'm 31, and I've been in school or working for the last 26 years, and I've been a wife for the last five, and a mom for almost three, and I still haven't figured out how to do all of it, and maintain happiness and sanity and peace for significant amounts of time? Do you have some tips? Please share.
One thing I have figured out is that Ryan loves banana bread or as he says, 'nana bed.' And he also loves to help me make banana bread. When he sees bananas turning brown, he asks when we're going to make bread. So on one or two nights each month, when the house is calm and quiet after Connor has gone to sleep, we make banana bread together. Ryan pulls up his stool and stands beside me as we gather the ingredients. He helps mush the bananas, break the eggs, and scoop in the flour and sugar. And for a moment, time stands still. For a moment, it feels like I've figured it out.
