I was laying down with a sick Seth today on the bed--Hazel was pulling up at its foot playing peek-a-boo and Lucy was clicking in and out of the room in her purple plastic dress shoes, silver clutch in hand (thanks, Aunt Ann). As I watched the girls and rubbed Sethie's back I thought, "We have lots of kids". At least--it feels that way. There are only three and yet my hands and this house seem so so full. I told some friends recently that I wish I felt "done". But, alas, there may be more faces added to the above montage in the future. It is that feeling that creeps in during lunch when I'm feeding Hazel and Seth and Lucy are at the table and I get a certain sense that there is another baby asleep in a back room somewhere, unaccounted for. Still, that baby will have to be patient...because my hands and this house seem so so full.
