Cat Snuggles Make Good Bedtime Stories

I wish you could see. I’m in the dark laying at the end of my daughters bed. She called me in because she needed someone to help her feel safe. Paul, our youngest cat child, has snuggled in behind her knees. This is major. Paul was picked out from the animal rescue by my daughter. They…

A Mindful Life

Here in this life be mindful.   Wear that dress that you are saving.   Tell the girl in HR that she has a really nice sweater on, ask where she got it (maybe she has a coupon?)   Get angry at injustice (and do something about it).   Say NO, and use it as…

Happy Holidays

The whirlwind that is Christmas is now over and we are relaxing among boxes and bags, tissue paper and tiny pieces of wire that keep toys in their places, and coffee, lots of coffee. My eyes want to close and Brian’s back and tummy are sore from the shellfish he accidentally ingested at a family…

Everything I Never Want to be

I heard my name called from the other room and was asked to join the others. I was sure it was something I had done wrong, again, and sighed as I approached the board room. We all walked on egg shells, held our breath, and asked how high when we were told to jump. The tension…

The Good Stuff

My life has been pretty upbeat lately. I’m on a new road to happiness that is keeping me engaged and positive (thank you meds, thank you Brian), and I’m learning to accept that not everything goes as planned. We are outside more, playing with Barbies, watching little to no T.V. (not that I don’t love…

I Wanted to Tell You…

I had the appointment with the fertility Dr last week. I wanted to share it with you in my usual poetic way, going over the details of the office and the way the chairs were set up. I wanted to tell you about the examination room and that there wasn’t a sink in there. I…

Cool as a Muther Heffin’ Cucumber

This weekend I took our daughter swimming with a friend. Nothing too spectacular; her mother in a bathing suit; all the children of the world in one body of water; someone named Alynna having a birthday party; water up my nose and in my face. But we had fun and made it out unscathed. I…

I Saw Your Bum

At almost 3 (gasp) my daughter is growing so fast and changing everyday. Her questions are rapid and seem to be pulled out of thin air; “Why is the water going so fast?” “Who is that person?” “What’s that smell like?” “I saw your bum, want to see mine?” Keeping up with her, educating her,…
