Wedged

I am blonde again (on purpose, of course) and I bought my first pair of super cute wedges since 2013.

This is a big deal.

 I declare my year of broken things over. 

 No more scooter, no more casts, no more of anything but strength and flexibility.

I'm done, I'm moving on.
Actually, I'm standing in the kitchen.

Zoe reaches around me to get something in the pantry.

She looks at me then looks up into my eyes.

Her: You're taller than me again.

Me. Seems so.

Her: I like it when you're taller than me. I feel..... safer.

She hugs me (hard!!) without leaning down or bending over over for the first time in a very long time.

I rest my chin on the top of her head for the first time in forever.

Three seconds later she pulls back and goes back to what she was doing.

I decide that I need to buy more cute shoes ASAP to help me be a better mother, then laugh.

My year of broken things is definitely over.
