Mollyism

Molly has been working hard on her joke repertoire lately. She’s had a lot of misses, but some pretty great hits. For example, a couple of weeks ago when it had gotten really chilly again (read: snowstorm) she declared that spring had gone on spring break. I thought that was pretty clever. But this morning, she truly knocked it out of the park.

Let me set the scene. I was grabbing a Coke from the fridge and she noticed that there was then only one remaining. She knows that I can become annoyed when this happens because the extra Cokes are in the basement and I just do not go down there. So, Molly dramatically called the sole Coke to my attention with, “Mommy, do you see that there’s only one Coke left?!?” And then Aaron let out a sigh, commenting that he would get to the restocking later and blah blah blah.

But Molly was having none of it. She exited stage right and declared the whole situation a:

“COKE-tastrophe!”

There was a day when she learned to #dab and she didn’t tell me. And she just pulled it out at some friends’ house one night, like it was the most natural thing. And while I couldn’t stop laughing, I realized I was witnessing another example of what will be only more big steps away from me and the life I thought the three of us had together. And I know that is beautiful and how it should be. But catching myself, watching that moment, finding it in a photograph? It takes my breath away at how fleeting and transient and amazing this all is. Molly, you are my #everything. I’m better because of you. Being your mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. By far. And I lived in Italy! #parenting #whyivoteblue #fallinwisconsin #moments #passageoftime #itgoestoofast

Have I mentioned recently how into these flowers 🌸 I am?! #thebouqscompany #thebouqs #subscriptionaddiction #freshflowers #farmtovase #gerberadaisies
And some @thebouqsco plucked out and cut small to be a little accompaniment to the powder room. Fresh flowers are the everything. #25days
Fresh flowers 🌺 on a Friday when temps plummet?! Yes please! 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thanks @thebouqsco for making a blustery #Wiscolife sunny inside. #freshflowers #dontmindifido #gerberadaisies #subscriptionaddiction #fallinwisconsin #farmtohome #thebouqscompany
I don’t know what these are sold as, but all children of lawyers know them as #chipclips. And even now that I’m nearly two decades into the practice of law, I still see them as chip clips. #thanksdad #chipclips #kidsoflawyers #childrenoflawyers #officesupplies #officesuppliesthatmakeithome
