Babies strapped to our fronts
The mother's group walks
The cacaphony of insect and bird sounds
The crunch of the pebbles under our feet
The joy of hiking
NAH- I wish I was that kind of woman but
in actuality the entire time I went on a
trail walk with the mother's group I kept
wishing it was over. I went because I know
I need the exercise. I know getting out is
good for both Auggie and I. However the
entire time I am out there I am worried we
will go to far and I'll be too tired to hike
back. I would really rather throw a blanket
down on the ground and just sit under a tree.
My sister says that walking in the 98 degree heat
with a baby strapped to you is something REFUGEES do.
NOT something people do by choice...
In the end I was glad that I went.
Glad for the exercise.
Glad for the companionship.
