Back in the Day
I love this picture and when I found it I showed it to the kids and they thought it was dad.
At first I laughed but then asked them why they thought that.
They both agreed that he wears a hat like that,jeans, hiking boots and blue work shirts quite often.
OK I can see that, although I do not think he ever stands quite like that or has boobs.
Then K added that I would never catch, let alone hold, fish like that and the clothes look too grubby to be something I would wear.
This got me to thinking.
Is this not the person I am anymore.
The adventure loving, pack packing, camping by myself girl who would spend hours by a river side with my dog and fishing rod.
I guess they don't see me the way I remember myself before kids.
This is an epiphany.
I need to consciously make sure that I do not loose myself and that I my girls know who I am and my past.
I need to show them my adventurous side and teach them all the splendour I enjoy of this world.
If they only knew all the things that their mama used to do!!
Some things I will keep to myself until the years ahead call for my infinate wisdom...ha ha.
Do I show them that in this picture my tongue is pierced???
