Oh the everyday bliss (ha!) of a Monday afternoon with hungry, whining kids and a mamma who loses her temper. Then there is grandma's homemade meatballs - that non of the kids want to eat but that the mamma loves. When the one year old hugs his big sister, again and again, everything is alright again.
These two together in the bike trailer, cosy under a wool blanket. So far there has been no fighting - knock on wood - in fact it's all quite idyllic.
That moment when the afternoon sun breaks through the heavy clouds on a day that was particularly dark and wet.
He had a blast trying to catch the vacuum cleaner hose.
When work is reading a novel in the loveliest November light.
Hanging out at home during kindergarten planning day. Finding new homes for the stuffed animals whilst her little brother naps. (The t-rex already lives in the window sill.) Waiting for her grandmother and my aunt and uncle to come for a Friday afternoon visit.
Evening run around the lake to clear my head. Finding it hard to make the right decision about my two job offers.
