the five of us


  • ten years ago today, my husband and I were married!
  • I feel amazed and surprised and happy, all at once
  • loving this big armful of children that he and I have made together


  • feeling, acutely, the passage of time
  • knowing that babyhood is so fleeting
  • knitting, knitting, knitting — Michaelmas will be here soon!


  • realizing (and loving!) that I’m one of “those” moms — the ones who knit at the pool every morning during their children’s swimming lessons
  • inspired every day by Fiona’s cheerfulness and complete joy
  • being a little too hard on myself lately


  • feeling sentimental — looking back at all three of my girls at the same ages
  • amazed that she’s rolling over, suddenly!
  • wondering how long it will take for her to figure out how to roll back
