chaos theory.

She walks around the yard in a life jacket. She never wears pants.  Prefers her hair in "horns."  Today she told me, "I love zebras.  And also I love birds.  And I love Evies."  Then she giggles.  He is the one who straps her into the lifejacket and they go on wild adventures together.

September has been full to bursting.  Flag football weekends, prayer group on Mondays, a flood in our basement, a beloved Auntie living in our (flooded!) basement, driving to two schools three days a week, a new (to us) car that needed a complete interior overhaul, fulfilling the end of our summer plans and homework folders and reading and staying up far too late too many nights in a row.  Also, two concerts within twenty four hours that this mama completely forgot about.

I need a life jacket.  I need a day without pants.  I need to follow the pace of this tiny one for a day or two.
