Discover Your Truth Unearth Your Soul
So in addition to being a Mommy I'm also the Nanny.
Today I was feeding Eliza her cereal for breakfast when her mom engages me in this ongoing conversation about feeding.
It goes a little something like this "I think she eats better with you"
To which I say "she gives me a hard times sometimes" and then of course its back and forth with me trying to reassure Mommy that baby eats just fine with her and gives Nanny just as hard a time a as she does Mommy.
Any good nanny has been there before :).
Anyway just to prove my point Eliza gave Nanny the finger (putting thumb in mouth in the middle of feeding) Just as mommy was walking out the door hereby reassuring Mommy Yeah!!!!!!!
Every since, its been one amazing journey for the both of us.
The most amazing part you say?
The learning experience that we are both going thru
Every time I try to figure out what my little nut case is doing and why, I learn something new about myself.
He's awakened my own childhood the part of me I was already learning to forget at a mere 25yrs old.
In a sense while I'm building Jonah up, he is breaking me down down.
I pour in all the knowledge I want him to have; he cleanses me of things I never needed to learn in the first place.
Basically, while trying to teach him all the good stuff I've had to figure out what I really think good.
Somewhere inside us all we always know who we are and who we want to be.
For me being Jonah's mom is helping me to find out who that person is.
