Does your closet look like this?
i have an abnormal child, and i dont mean in the ways of SB. Cause really saylor is just unique in every way. There are few typical things about her. She is obsessed with infomercial products. its not as though she watches a lot of infomercials either. she sees a product once and cant let go of the idea of its simple brilliance. this child wanted this for xmas and nothing else ...
and she was happy and thrilled with this cheap but useful product.
yesterday was a day of wonder for me. I dont see her the way the rest of the world sees her. I am her mom. I am also with her everyday so ... its kind of like you dont see your own grow, i see her and us but maybe not always for what she is or we are. I admit i take for granted this amazing blessing that is in my life every moment. I probably do that too often with all my kids. We had a really busy day and she was with me most of the day as we ran from place to place and then snuck in a skiing lesson at snowbird (which mind you was the best lesson yet, the strongest skiing yet, the most runs in an hour yet) down to last minutes before i went to sleep i could feel the unique angel that she is a bit stronger then on any given normal day.
she proclaimed last night that she discovered what she wants for her bday (earlier in the day she proclaimed what she wanted to do for her bday which was go fishing ... go figure) so she showed me her closet and said "does your closet look like this? you know how i have waaaay to many clothes? well there are these hanger things (and she starts drawing in the air with her hands to create visual effect) that make your closet look so much better ... i want those!"
the wonder hanger for the wonder kid i guess. whatever makes her happy. i am grateful she doesnt want an expensive wasteful toy! and she does share a closet with her sister and its a little tight on space.
She was cuddling with me in bed last night. and i was just taking it all in. for me even her smell, her skin and how it feels is unusual. dream like. so different. so special. I think at moments it looks and feels like any other kids and i am tempted to say that all moms feels this way about their own children some times, but then i realize i have these moments with storie and stock but they arent exactly like this. she is so angelic, so unexplainable sometimes.
