• making preparations for a celebration this weekend
  • trying to heed my body’s reminder to slow down
  • coaxing many new smiles from Fiona


  • feeling like sometimes having one less thing to do is more important than being a purist- I can go back to cloth diapers next week
  • reminding myself that one less-than-perfect day does not mean I’m on a slippery slope
  • venturing out into the world with all three girls, feeling so proud
