We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
A few of this weeks treasures with some random musings along the way!!
Oh how I love thee... let me count the ways!
I just can't seem to get enough of him! Since I've started back at work I find that our time together is more balanced. Playing together instead of me feeling like I'm always saying, "in just a moment". Parenting is hard work. Parenting and keeping the household - harder. I love the days when I can text Jenn before she arrives home from work with the warning, "the house is messy". Then there is no cause for concern. (But who is getting dinner on the table? oh yeah, me!) It's all about balance and I'm finding more these days - even with less time.
My neighbor Sara said it best about our boys: "two year olds for hire"
Riding high with mama in the Boba: sharing his farmer's market carrot with Ema.
This sweet sign: and meeting baby Linden, who it's for! Welcome to the world little man!
Trampoline fun with Avi: and his hair!!
This smile. Period.
Apple harvest: time to start making applesauce and pies and crisps and and and...
Wednesday's forecast high of 61, overcast, rain: long sleeves, long pants, socks... first time this season!! I hear people saying that summer is over.... NO!!!! It's late summer!!! And it's one of my favorite parts of summer.
I found some patience this week in the kitchen: and Avi used his mad skillz to help make his french toast. I love that I can find the places where I can allow my 2 year old to be at the hot stove. It is with guidance and supervision that our kiddos can learn where to touch and where not to touch. Things that are "hot" or "dangerous" don't always have to be off limits if we can find the patience and time to really be there.
