Bowie Andromeda, 3 years old
At 10:17 pm, my Bowie Andromeda will have successfully completed her 3rd cycle around the star we call Sol on this pale blue dot we call home.  Happy Birthday, chicken. I could spend a lifetime trying to write about you, me, and this mother daughter thing w...

Posted this on FB today. Re-posting here for +Joel Morris' sake.

Bienvenidos a la "threenager." Some mornings, it's nothing but solid gold relief to drop her off at school.
B: "NO! I want daddy!"
Me: "Daddy's at work. You miss him, me too. Please don't yell at me."
B" "DON'T YELL AT ME!"
C: "I didn't yell at you. I'm sorry if it sounded like it. Let's go eat breakfast. Would you like some watermelon?"
B: "NO! I DON'T want watermelon."
C: "Toast?"
B: "Yes. Toast."
Five minutes later.
C: Please come sit down at your table, your toast is ready.
B: From her room, "I don't want toast!" 
C: That is what you chose. Did you change your mind? I have eggs too?
B: "Yes! Eggs. I changed my mind. With a tortilla. But Mommy, DON'T FOLD IT LIKE THAT!" 
C: "You want a taco?"
B: "No! I want a burrito. But open. Mom, can I have some watermelon please?"
Five minutes later.
C: Bowie, if you get up from your chair again, you are telling me you are finished with breakfast. Are you finished?
B: "NO!"
5 minutes later
C: Bowie, remember when I told you that if you continued to get up from your chair that bfast would be over?"
B: "Don't take my breakfast!!!"
Take her plate to the sink. Commence meltdown 1. 
Five minutes later
C: It's time to get dressed.
B: I don't want those blue shoes.
C: Okay, you can wear the blue shoes or the pink shoes.
B: The blue shoes. But I don't want those socks! They are too twisted.
C: Okay, let me untwist them for you. Let's put your shoes on now.
B: No! The blue shoes are too tight.
C: Yes, they are new and maybe uncomfortable. Do you want to change shoes?
B: NO! I want these blue shoes.
Five minutes later
B: These shoes feel funny! 
C: Want to put different shoes on?
B: No! I want these shoes.
Five minutes later
C: Bowie, if you put your foot on the sink again, you'll loose the privilege of standing on the counter and looking in the mirror to brush your teeth.
Five minutes later.
C: Oh I see you have decided not to listen. That's okay, but now it means it's time to get down from the sink.
Commence meltdown #2.
B: Momma, maybe I can try again tomorrow.
C: Absolutely. 
Five minutes later
C: Bowie, it's time to get into your car seat. I can put you in or you can do it yourself.
B: NO! I can do it. I miss daddy! I want my breakfast! My shoes are too tight.
C: Oh honey, you are having a hard morning. It's hard to be three, your brain is growing so fast. I hope your day gets better from here.
B: Crying. Crying.Crying.
5 seconds later, in the happiest voice:
B: Momma! Greta is coming over today!

Ha!  You'll discover that you'll have much less tolerance with the second.

Interrogating talent.
In a daze I sat doodling. Misery and angst boiling my blood. I could't write, I couldn't think. Just doodle. Who told us what we are good at? Who told us what we are bad at? Who told us we are what we are? Talents, skills, limits, desires. Like a resume of ...

Nice.  And in a year or two you will be hearing her ask life's most important question. Are we there yet?

The day gave us 75 degree weather, a rare treat for Seattle April. We spent an hour at the beach after school, even though it put us all behind schedule. Late dinner, late bed, late glass of wine. The leisurely lateness feels important today.

So well said!
 
Imagine trying to create a map of your house while confined to only the living room. You might peek through the doors into other rooms or look for light spilling in through the windows. But, in the end, the walls and lack of visibility would largely prevent you from seeing the big picture.

The job of mapping our own Milky Way galaxy from planet Earth, situated about two-thirds of the way out from the galaxy's center, is similarly difficult. Clouds of dust permeate the Milky Way, blocking our view of the galaxy's stars. Today, researchers have a suitable map of our galaxy's spiral structure, but, like early explorers charting new territory, they continue to patiently and meticulously fill in the blanks.

You would have been 65 today
I attended your last birthday party. I smelled the sulfuric remnant from the last candle you ever blew out. The end was near, we all knew it; we all wanted it by then: Your daughter, your then-husband, your friend who brought cake, me. You didn't want the f...

How desperately I want to remember.
Throughout life, a lot of attention is paid to the "big" moments like birthdays and physical milestones. As kids, we slowly become more and more aware of our surroundings, but what's left when we are adults are usually only fragmented memories of childhood....
