This week....January 8, 2012

This week....

I learned that my tiniest girl has ticklish ribs...

I taught my bigger girl to play Do-Re-Mi on the piano and smiled when she played it 4 times for our dinner guests later that day, and thought that she'll soon surpass my playing....

We also worked on blowing bubbles with bubble gum.....we're still working on that.....

I made gluten free brownies in honor of our gluten-free dinner guest Sandy....and they were amazing. I would eat these again.....

I breathed in and out and was calm and managed to get the necessary work done when Helena was home sick after two weeks vacation....marveling at the delicate balancing act that is my life, and that calm is always a better approach to all situations....

Took several long, sweet naps with Lucy, and we were both the better for them....

I stroked the chubby cheeks of my baby girl and the lean, silky cheeks of my bigger girl and was struck once more with how rich it all is, and how fast it all goes....

I began to ponder what needs to be child proofed in this how (oh so much!)...Lucy is a mover and will be getting around before I know it....

I wondered if winter, which in past years I've dreaded, will ever actually arrive this year....it was fifty degrees yesterday...

Drank the last bit of eggnog in my morning latte and said good bye to the holiday season....

Waited with so many other loving friends for AnneMarie and Rusty's little boy to arrive....thought he was coming Friday, but he'll  be here soon....and their lives will deepen in ways that can't imagine yet....

These were some of the many sweet moments of my week....if you're inspired to do so, post a comment or leave a link in the comments to some of yours.


My view of the world looks much like this....much of the time....these days...and it is good.

I agree that calm is usually a better way to deal with challenges. I was inspired in my kitchen this week, and had a week full of delicious and healthy food for me and Thurston. I also got to talk on the phone with you. A wonderful, delightful event, that can cheer me on the saddest of days (altho i wasn't sad on friday when we talked!)Love you!

It is hard to imagine that you turn around one day and your kids are teenagers. That's what happened to me anyway :) Sounds like you are loving every minute of it all, as you should!
