I think, as any couple would, we have made up our minds of where we want to go and how we want to go there, but we also know, even if we are having trouble accepting it, that it may not necessarily be the way it works out. Enter my sweet Cullen's room:
From here, it may not seem to have anything to do with this post, but it actually does.
Look closer... the cow is telling the zebra a secret. Apparently they are friends and they have sleepovers in the Little People Barn, although I've never seen a zebra and a cow hanging out, it made perfect sense to Baby Boy to put them together.
However, the real lesson today though comes from C's truck and Noah's Ark.
Somehow, in his little 16 month old mind, he deliberately decided to line the animals up on the car carrier and put the cars on Noah's Ark. Even my baby knows that sometimes, the path you want to take, isn't the path that works the best. And even if we get the path we want now, in another two years, we might not. Sometimes, what you least expect is exactly what you need (I mean, look how happy that lion is to finally be on dry land). And you know what? Somehow, his little intuitive, imaginative and amazing mind brought me a sense of peace. I know we are going to be alright. I know whether we take the car carrier or the boat, we are going to be happy. I know we made the right decision, I just don't know where it is taking us. And I'm ok with that.
