The clone


For some time now I’ve suspected Wilder Bedgood is more of a clone than a product of Mike and I’s shared DNA. A few times I’ve caught a glimpse of what I thought may be a resemblance to me … But it seemed more hallucination from sleep deprivation than anything else. Until today! Alas, today something has changed and Wilder looks like my baby pictures. I’m kind of relieved as I was beginning to think I had, indeed, been part of a Mike Bedgood regeneration effort to sire a team of miniMikes with the mission of spreading the love of all things Mississippi State, 80s metal and Apple. A scary future that would present.
The truth is that who Wilder looks like is irrelevant. But just for giggles I’ll present Exhibit A- my baby pic as proof. And continue to hope Wilder has enough of me in him to enjoy something other than Iron Maiden.



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.
