Christmas Quiet

IMG_8105

The holiday season is full of hustle and bustle.
The parties and planning and prepping and purchasing and parenting just never stops.

So I especially love the quiet time just after naps.

Dumpling loves his stuffed animals and often sits with one to read a book.

As you probably know, seeing my kids sit to read on their own brings me pure joy.

I can't help but post the pictures.

Add Christmas to the mix and you have perfection!

Wishing you all a moment of quiet in your day!

One of these is not like the others.

We recently went to Peanut's preschool open house.

We get to browse their classroom and take in what they've been doing.

Math, science, reading, audiobooks, journal time, silkworms, butterflies, baby chicks and yes, they've even memorized the pledge of allegiance.

You marvel at how far they have come.

You can read the well documented answer to questions they've been asked by their teachers.

Hilarity!  Out of the mouth of babes, amiright?

The thing is…
you cannot help but compare your child's work to the work of other children.

It is unavoidable.

We do it innocently and without thinking.

So with a smile we browsed these little bees for our own little B.



Until we found it.

We looked around and started to laugh.

B come over here and look at this!

Look at all the other bees and look at our kid's bee.

It was too funny!  Should we be worried?

When I was finally able to get his attention, Peanut wandered over to the wall.

"Peanut, tell me about your bee?"

"Oh.  It's a Winja bee."

The Ninja Bee

That's what I get for doubting my kid's craft skills and creativity.

Hello old friend

IMG_5861


Hello my friends, I've missed you all.

I think I've gotten to the point that simply mentally writing my blog posts as I nurse the baby in the middle of the night isn't cutting it.

Or as Peanut would say
"That doesn't cut."

Our dumpling is 6 months old.

SIX MONTHS

It's terrible.  Make it stop.

And because some of your are crazy, you've requested that I write some of my childbirth experiences.

You people are terrible.  You love knowing the awful truth.

So coming soon to a blog near you will be posts about losing my hair, possibly my mind, breastfeeding the second time around… and maybe something about poop.

Because we can't talk about motherhood without talking about poop.
