I Want New Shoes and She Has Her Daddy’s Smile

As a mom, as a woman, as a human being, I always have a million billion, a hundred things running through my head at one time.

We are out of milk. Go to Publix. We also need turkey, apples, and new shoes.

My head is a constant check list. I check my calendar and add those events to my dry erase board. Make the beds. The laundry had babies. Triplets. Practice piano. Homework. That is not for me. It is for her. She has her Daddy’s smile.

My phone chirps and I don’t have time to check it. I still need to put on mascara and brush my teeth. I want another cup of coffee but brushing my teeth says no to another cup.

She is growing so quickly. Eight!  Eight is almost nine. Dear Lord, I pray for her husband. I pray for the father of a little boy that will one day be her husband. Dear Lord, make him a man that will be a godly model for the boy that will grow to be her husband.

I want new shoes. I saw a pair in the mall. Super cute, no cute is not the right word, hot. They were hot shoes!  But I’m saving for piano lessons.

I’m a mom. It’s not about me. Yes, I want to be one sexy Momma for my husband. But he wants me to stay in budget. I’m on my way to the grocery store. I think I’ll bake a little treat for them. The hot man I call my husband and the little girl that I love more than new shoes.

  1. Reminds me of the last chapter I read in your book. 🙂 I am guessing you will have put quite a lot of yourself and your husband into Claire and Wayne. I must say, I was surprised at how steamy it got… though always within the boundaries of good taste. 😉

    • So very funny you say that! Claire and Wayne are NOT me and James, the things that happen to them and the things they do, we did not do. As you read, you will see the importance of that distinction. HOWEVER, I write personally and from the heart. My emotions are what I know. In order to make it real, there is a LOT of me and james in the emotion of the book. The issues are things that I fear, I love, I worry about…so on so forth. There were times when I cried as I was writing. I thought, “get it together Caroline! You just made that happen!” But it was because I personalized everything. Make sense?
