About Me

My photo
I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

The Olympics. And words of affirmation.

So far I've only watched enough of The Olympics to discover that water polo is nothing like volleyball at all.


Having nothing to do with water sports revelations, last night Nate said to me, "I'm really thankful that I don't have to worry about our children while I'm at work. Or our money. Or what you're doing. Thank you." I'm not sure if he's counseling someone with these issues or not so I'm not sure where those thoughts were coming from, but I'll take them. Neither of us take trust for granted.

Then, this morning I was in the bath (a bubble bath, of course because that's the type of luxurious lifestyle I lead) and he came into brush his teeth and said, "I'm glad you have gotten into taking baths. I'm glad you're learning to relax and that you feel as though you deserve this time ... because you do." I have a sneaking suspicion that part of him is just glad I'm taking baths in the morning because I'm in there when he comes in to brush his teeth before work ...

The other day Mazie wanted to rock Freya to sleep at nap time. Freya, in her usual Freya fashion was fine with it. She's usually down for whatever ... so relaxed. Must get it from me. I AM taking bubble baths in the mornings now, you know.

Oh, for goodness’ sake these girls are sweet

This is what Freya does when I tell her it's time to sleep
