The other day we moved Nolan from a carseat to a booster. That was bittersweet.
Exciting because, yay, one less carseat! But sad because his identical twin may never (easily) sit in a regular seat in a car.
Before, that likely would have inspired me to write a heavy post about how hard it is to have identical twins that in many ways are very different. And then afterwards, I would have likely second-guessed how I wrote the post, feeling guilty and worried that Asher might misunderstand it to think I feel he's lesser because he can't sit on his own, when obviously I don't feel that way.
So now, instead of getting sad about it, I chose to say "That's life". And I'm only writing this blog post to illustrate that point. See how that works? It's all about choices, and these are the kinds of choices I'm making going forward.
Also…I needed to say all that so I'd have a tiny bit of content in a post telling the winner of the Monday Coffee book. Thank you to those friends who commented - your words touched me. But I picked the winner based on a totally random number (chosen unknowingly by Rio), so the winner is….Stacie! Send me your address and the book is yours :) So glad you'll be reading it, my well-deserving friend!
