what takes me by surprise (being a mom only 4 years and a wife only 5)is when new "red, peely-skinned infant" emotions are still born to me. You'd think we'd have seen it all by now, but the world feeds us so much variety & color...and sometimes you do just feel so raw in the firsts of it. Loved your poem.
Amy, I didn't think of that. But, it is truth. This truth you discovered deserves a whole set of verses of its own. It is what is hard and wonderful in life--the raw experiences.
I recognize your photo...Sometimes I feel like I am stumbling on NEW emotions, yes, but also tweaking the old just enough that I am in uncharted territory. Always a journey. Loved this today!
