I’ve never met a kid whose strongest desire is
to understand the underlying components
and systems of the basic things we operate.
Hopefully he’ll be just as intrigued about
changing the toilet paper when he’s done.

Soaking in that sweet, sweet moment of calm
before the family comes barreling through the front door
needing all of me.

The Daily Work Of Motherhood

Last night was a rough night. My little pisces, Griffin, was in so much pain with being sick, writhing and crying in his sleep, and wanted my comfort even though I was sleeping right next to him. So today, I’m deeply exhausted.

It reminded me of the early days of motherhood: the sleepless nights, the crying, and trying to soothe a newborn. Motherhood, this last four years has been such a journey. My expectations have shifted - as they’ve grown, I’ve grown. As they have gotten a little older I find they need or want me a little less, which is bittersweet and liberating all in one breath. But this week they’ve needed more of me.
My expectations have shifted - as they’ve grown, I’ve grown. As they have gotten a little older I find they need or want me a little less, which is bittersweet and liberating all in one breath.
Today I’m reminded that motherhood takes daily emotional and spiritual work. It is equal amounts of caring, patience, balance, release, compassion, boundaries, and doing your best. Because as much as you love your child, you truly can’t fix everything.

Today’s nap time won’t be for dishes, it will be for caring for myself.

Handed Down

I decorate our home with things that make me feel good.
Most of our belongings are not fancy at all,
having been handed down from my
Grandparents or my Mom and Dad.
These the pieces that help weave together
the history and story of our family.
