This is why I want chickens and a garden. This is why I crave a new knitting project. This is why I want to spend the first five years with her, just the two of us, until she's ready to leave the nest.

I think there's nothing more important than a strong foundation; she will build up and tear down throughout her life, and she'll always know where to place the blocks when she does.

These five years will fly by. And then there will be still a lifetime of work ahead of me.

For now, this is more than enough.
