on being gretta's mom

being gretta elise's mom. 
it comes with both give and take. good and bad. happy and sad.
she has passion, humor, corkiness, and drama. 
some days i loose my patience... (most days at least once or twice) with her constant need for that spark in her life. 
i don't believe she will be a lazy person. or a dud. 
i feel challenged by her, but more than in the normal mother/child way that toddlers challenge their parents. i feel this responsibility to show her that life is limitless. i need to give her those opportunities that will open her eyes to her full potential. this seems crazy for me to be thinking about when she is only 3 years old. but its because i don't have the tools i need yet so i have to start now! i have to look ahead to that day when she is going to realize she needs to be great at something to be happy.
i don't know who gretta will become. but at the very least i know she will bring LIFE to those around her. 
she makes my life so much better.
spencer and i are lucky to be a part of her journey :)

p.s. i lied in the previous post... she already has this swimsuit! and i can't get enough of her in it.
