Lately

i have realized that it’s ok if Lily doesn’t go to the park e-ve-ry day

and it’s ok if she doesn’t play with other kids e-ve-ry day

and it’s ok if she watches sesame street some mornings

and it’s ok for her to play in her room by herself

so i can do things like paint and make jewelry

because it’s not ALL about Lily

it’s about me too

and she has to fit in my life like i have fit in hers
