And the load/it doesn’t weigh me down at all


Blaise had to get his vaccines today and it as usual sucked. We tried to temper the day with a trip to our pal's coffee shop and indulge in chocolates, but it still went south. I cannot bear to hear my child scream out. He is knocked out in an acetaminophen haze now and is perfectly fine, but I always get a terrible sadness when he cries like that. Finn laughed wickedly in delight at the fact he did not have to get shots. He did however take to playing with his brother a lot today. This has been happening right under my nose as of late and I am so thrilled. It has taken a very long time for Finn to buy into Blaise. He has not always been so thrilled to play with him. I was worried for a bit that they would never interact properly, but they have begun. They run with each other and tumble and laugh. Blaise cannot keep his eyes off of Finn. Finn is a Deity to him. Blaise is smitten and I think it is safe to say on this rainy sorta funky day in March that Finn kinda digs him too.

In a back corner of my brain is lurking this lovely photo. I really want many things. And one real big thing is to have an outside area to entertain. I want it to be whimsical and inviting and charming. I want to wear turquoise caftans and twirl my arms above my head and dance. I want to play with my friends again. I want lights like this photo. How do I make this happen?

I hate shots. Hate them. I dread that screech.

This post breaks my heart in a beautiful way...


...you and Joe, now two little brothers; the deconstruction of who we are, what we create, what becomes, wow, too much to think of without crying with deep joy, deep 'those two little dudes holding hands are our future'.

You and I need to connect for a week long coffee break, screeching toddlers in our hair. XO

just start hanging strings of lights...

they'll look awful in the daylight {don't we all}, but there's nothing better than a mess of magical twinklies about 7.00 pm...

we all need some of this for the summer. thanks for reminding!

Hey, is that a Boon sippy? Does Blaise like it? I want to get one for my little nugget, it just looks so frickin cool.

yes it is a boon cup...It took him a bt to get used to it..He still prefers a bottle or avent sippy though. I like the Boon best...it looks cooler and doesn't drip :)

My little Salamander screams like hell when they put the thermometer in her armpit but doesn't react at all to shots. Narry a tear. Weirdo!
