Poems of Motherhood | September + December 2019


And just like that, we'll be caught up to the present day. I kind of like that, because it will keep me writing in the moment, but I also am a little nervous. Posting these a little behind where we are has been nice to reminisce and also, it gives me a little space from what I'm writing. Which I need. It helps me edit out things where I got a little carried away being poetic, and because they are so personal, it helps me feel better about sharing them. So here's to being brave in 2020. 


Sept. 15, 2019

For Everly

You ran to daddy
still in your PJs
stood there and hugged him for more than a minute
just because


Sept. 16, 2019

For Everly

You held my legs
"Momma"
a plea not to go
it made the crying this morning worth it
because for a moment
I felt what "Momma" meant when you said it



Sept. 20, 2019

For Everly

I guess we've given you enough of goodbyes
what with the dentist and doctor appointments
you're eagerly wishing everyone goodbye
when they've just arrived



December 5, 2019

2 Moments:
for Everly

You crawling up onto the couch
onto "Auntie's" chest
for a kiss before "nap"

You laying back on my pregnant belly
while I read you stories
you hold Daddy's hand while I read



Thanks for reading! I'm excited to write more poetry about both my children and also about transitioning to two babies. It has been a wild ride already.
