*musing*

When I first had Elayna, I wondered if I'd be the mom the kids wanted to hang with. The mom who had the neighborhood kids in her kitchen every day.

That didn't happen in Florida. It didn't happen in Georgia. And I kind of forgot that I ever wondered that.... it just didn't seem to happen in this day and age.

Took me a while to realize it, but - it's happening here. :) More often than not these days, Elayna brings a friend or two home from school - I have kids doing their homework together at my kitchen table, kids watching anime, kids drawing - always kids drawing and writing - she's fallen in with a really creative crowd.

I'm the mom I thought maybe I'd like to be. In more ways than just this, and most of those deliberate! But... without trying, I'm the fun geeky mom that the kids like.

I like it.

I should totally bake cookies next time. :)

And this is, of course, fantastic for Elayna - she never really had a social circle in Atlanta, not like she has here. What she's developing here is wonderful. :)
