Wonder

1. I wonder as I wander

As I go through this life
I wonder many different sorts things.
Like, when will the cleaning fairy
come, or who will finish this
laundry, or how will we pack
all this stuff, or most of
all – will I ever feel good.

2. Wonder Woman

There are days or weeks, like
last week, when I thought nothing
could get in my way. Even
Strept throat and fevers weren’t squashing
down my productivity. I was Wonder
Woman! Why can’t every week be
just like that one. Pretty Please!

3. It is wonderful

To watch Lizzy-Jane grow up.
Last night, at dinner, we were
discussing the baby in my belly
Lizzy-Jane said, “There’s a baby
in your belly?” And then made
a funny face. I said is
that confusing, and she said, “Um,
yeah.” Her dad guffawed at that.

    As Molly stated I love the multiple usage of the word wonder. It would be great if we could be wonder woman all the time. 🙂

    I love those wonder woman days/weeks. Sadly though, I find my Jabba-the-Hut days tend to dominate. Too much snow-rain-yuck makes me a an unmotivated girl. 🙂

    I saw a picture of a little girl dressed in a Wonder Woman costume somewhere out in blogland this week. It must be that many of has superheros on our minds!

    Wonderful wonders, guffawing with the girl…

    Hey, you tell Lizzy-Jane that some of us are full-grown grown-ups and we still find it kind of “confusing” that somebody can have a baby in her belly. The miracle of life, and yet just a little weird too! 😉

    Lovely post! I like your three plays on “wonder”. It takes so many forms. And Lizzy-Jane’s reaction made me smile – too funny. 🙂

    ps: if you see the cleaning fairy, please send her my way.

    1. If I see the cleaning fairy!!!! I would gladly share. It shouldn’t take her long to clean my tiny house:)
