The Princess and The Prosthetic

Double Digits

February 27, 2019 in Holidays, Sentiments - No Comments

Ah….ten years old. Double digits. 
We’re in a new stage of life. 
I’m constantly veering between looking over my shoulder for the sweet chubby cheeked baby who always wanted to be held and then looking forward to the independent strong willed woman she’s going to become. 
She wants to do it all by herself but gets upset when I won’t help her. 
She’s very concerned with what’s right and wrong, fair and equal, infinite and scarce. 
She wants to know how big space is, how long is forever, and what true love looks like. 
She wants to help everyone and doesn’t understand why people would say rude things because that can hurt feelings. 
She comes home from school and has to have 30 minutes to “chill” otherwise it’s a meltdown during homework. 
I see peeks of that baby girl…..she wants to be snuggled between James and I on the couch, she still looks for me when she gets hurt, and she still loves her stuffed unicorn, Uni. 
But I also can see the woman she’s going to become. Strong willed (lord help me), stubborn about her goals, loving, fierce, inquisitive, kind, sarcastic as hell, a game changer, and a force to be reckoned with……

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
