it is official. she is walking.
not very good.
but she is walking.
why won't she listen to me when i tell her to bend her
knees just a tiny bit more.
it will be so much easier.
why won't she do what i tell her.
because she wants to do it her way.
not my way.
and i am just the mom.
not "just" the mom.
i am the mom that will always pick
her up when she falls.
and tell her to keep going and to keep trying.
because that is my job.
and i must tell her how much i love her.
