what i’m for

November 18, 2015

Today I’m linking up with my friend Brittany to share some of the things I’m for. This is an attempt at positivity, even though I for sure don’t always feel it! But today I’ve had a decent night’s sleep and a scream-free morning, so I’m feeling pretty good. :) Coffee. Listen, coffee makes me a better person. I really don’t mind that my body is completely dependent on it at this point. Doing what works for you. This is my parenting philosophy. Although I have my ideals, life gets in the way and I’m all about surviving however necessary. Lullabies. Bedtime is hard for us right now, but a sweet song makes it easier. Sometimes a well-chosen lullaby can even calm a horrific tantrum. Here…

notes from an unplanned day off

November 11, 2015

I’m home today with a sick boy. If you’ve been reading for awhile, you might remember that Liam was sick constantly for the first year and a half of his life. So today, I am celebrating the fact that this is is first illness in months. He only has a mild fever and congestion, so hopefully it won’t stick around long.

We went for a long walk and I was surprised by how muggy it is outside. Middle of November and it’s 80 degrees and I’m sweating! Back at home, I got him…

they were here / 1

November 5, 2015

I don’t have a lot of time these days to work on the house like I want to, but I do like to keep things neat and tidy. For me it is very true that outer order contributes to inner calm. However, that’s often hard to do when kids are living a full life in the space. We keep their “stuff” to a minimum and I do a daily pick-up of the house which helps, but as long as they are there I will find evidence of them. And actually, I love that. So this photo series is to celebrate the little things around the home that remind me: my kids were here. Current library book on my bedside table….

what i learned in october

November 3, 2015

I started strong with writing down what I learned in October, but it got kind of stressful toward the end and I didn’t end up remembering to keep up with it! So here are the few random things I learned over the past month. Pop culture trivia Am I the last one to know this? Kirk Cameron and Candace Cameron Bure are siblings. I learned this from the Popcast. Fairy tales Also from the Popcast, I learned some of the details about the dark origins of fairy tales. Suuuper creepy stuff. Random medical stuff This is probably going to be a recurring category in my life because of my job. From working in the pre-op department this month, I learned…
