Every so often, I have a moment of Mommy Zen
I step outside to find my toddler
still in his footie pjs
playing in the dogs' water dish
And instead of hustling him back inside to get him changed
Instead of worrying about the mess
Instead of leaping to No
I thought, "It's only water."
Even when he climbed into the sandbox
To play with his big brother
who yelled "He's all wet!"
I said, "It's only water."
"It's only water."
I let my independent, determined
joyful little guy
be all that
It's only water
What's your latest moment of Zen?
