her daycare IS amazing, the best in town i'd say, and she is a social kid who will really benefit from time with other kiddos, which she was really lacking in her life. i guess i just often think about the way humans have lived for thousands of years, in tribal communities where the women gather together to do their many tasks and tend the children, who get to play together, and the men also gather together to get other things done, and the whole community benefits and thrives from all this working together. is that a romanticized notion? probably, but my soul still thirsts for something along those lines.
sitting here in an office chair, listening to 103.3 "W-K-F-R!" and answering phones, saying "can i let him know who's calling?" and "let me put you through to voicemail" dozens of times each day...it just seems so far away from my potential as a human on this planet.
we'll figure it out though, and in the meantime i am so grateful for this time in our lives, however difficult it may be. talk about first world problems!
