We will be leaving mimi’s house in the next few weeks and will be back on the road again. Being houseless with you sometimes worries me. I know in the real world people look down on us and think just because we don’t have a house we aren’t ‘good parents’ and ‘we aren’t able to care for you properly’ and bull shit. I just want to raise you in such a way that you will realize money and possessions don’t matter; it’s family and love that is important. You have an amazing family who loves you to no end and no amount of money can compare to that. If I drill anything in your brain growing up this will be it.
Being woke up by you at 4am has never been so enjoyable. I have come to cherish those middle of the night wake ups a whole lot. Yes, sometimes I am very sleepy and very grumpy. And sometimes I just stick you on my boob and fall right back to sleep, but it is still one of my favorite times with you. Usually it is just me and you awake and it seems like the rest of the world is sleeping and it’s just me and you. I get to nurse you and cuddle you back to sleep and I love that. Sometimes your daddy will wake up too and then it’s just the 3 of us being awake in the middle of the night caring and looking after you. Looking at it from a better perspective when I get grumpy really turns the whole experience around and makes it a very amazing enjoyable one. Thank you for making me be able to see the bright side a little bit clearer. I adore you.
You don’t even know what states are but you have already been to 12 of them; Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia. You went on a coast to coast road trip before you were even 2months old. You are a very lucky little girl to be born to traveling hippies!
