Responsible Wonder: The Dance of Adulthood | Guest Post on Seeing Everything Else

belle guest post

Earlier this week I hosted the lovely Isabelle Ingalls on this blog. Today I’m delighted to be guest posting over on her blog, Seeing Everything Else

My mom tells me that when I was just a toddler she would go for walks with me, pushing the stroller down the sidewalk of a street down the road from our development. The other day I was biking down that same road, like I do so often now, and I passed a woman pushing a toddler in a stroller.

It was a little girl, blond like I was at that age. I waved to the mom, and as I coasted past I saw her daughter pointing at something excitedly. I didn’t notice anything of particular interest in that direction, but the little girl was laughing in obvious delight.

So much has changed since I was that little girl—and at the same time, so little.
