Tiny humans


My tired tiny human

On Grey’s Anatomy the relentlessly annoying Arizona oft refers to her ped patients as “tiny humans” and lately I’ve felt it’s definitely true.
After carrying and birthing this child you can’t help but feel a kind of ownership of them. And it’s easy to forget that as much as a child is a part of you they are very much their own person. A little person, but a person nonetheless.
Today we had an in-store mini meltdown and I was unfazed. Not because I don’t care. But because I realize that as a mother of a 12 week old you can act on their behavior, you can plan and you can set yourself up for good days … But, these little people are not furbies. (they actually kind of are … Have you ever tried to shut one up without taking out the batteries? A furbie, that is.) They can be taught to be sure (or at least thats what I’ve heard) but they are unpredictable like us big humans and the sooner you realize that, the better your days (good and bad) will go.


About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
