Reality seems though that I will just do more dishes, diapers, cleaning, dealing (or is it disciplining, sometimes I'm not even sure)... So why dream about a life of more? I know there are glimpses. Sometimes as simple as

I know it will take courage to shake off the frustration of it and do it will more grace. Oh that reminds me of this article, about being a Velveteen Mother that made my heart grow and my eyes moist.
