Random Acts of….Independence

July 4th seems like the perfect time to reflect not only on the independence we are so blessed with as a nation, but the independence my children have recently begun to discover in themselves.

They are finally at an age where they can play outside together riding bikes, sidewalk chalking the driveway, watering Daddy’s flower beds….and mommy can be inside nursing or folding laundry or cooking dinner while watching out the windows. 

They can bathe themselves.  Now I’m not claiming they do a great job and they don’t understand the concept of using an amount of shampoo the size of a quarter, but at least they smell better when they get out.  And there are enough bubbles in the tub to clean the rest of the neighborhood kids, too.

You know, when it comes to independence, it’s really the little things that matter.
