TGIF (x 1 Million)

Anne posted what I think is a really interesting question over at Bloom today...
click on over and weigh in on the matter.

also, I like this picture of my baby
and i like my baby

also, I could not be happier about the fact that today's Friday. And that it's raining here (!!!)
and that two of the cutest little people in the entire universe are snuggled in my bed with me right now. well, one's snuggling, one's climbing all over me and trying to poke at my keyboard.

also, it's been a challenging week. and I've been having a lot of thoughts about life, hard things, happy mothers, strong families. And I want to blog about some of those deeper's just a matter of making the time to do it. I guess I'm saying, stay tuned...there may be some soulful stuff coming.

also (and lastly), this was one of the cutest, cleverest, funniest displays of creative play I've ever seen (from one of the cutest, cleverest, funniest little boys i know):

an army of guys, lined up for battle, armed with colored pencils. naturally.

i will cry rivers and rivers when these little left-overs
of creativity are no longer showing up in my life.

now go get your think on at Bloom...


  1. Lovely post. It was because of posts like this that I chose to write a lot about your blog in my master's thesis. (You can download it in PDF form on my blog.)

  2. Adorable photo of Lily! I love Henry's army. And I need some of your soul-searching posts so hurry it up! =)

  3. I love that! Soldiers with colored pencils. What creative little brain!

    And I love your picture of Lily too. And her too. Even though we've never met.

  4. Oh, the soldiers made my day. Classic. And what a gorgeous shot of Lily!

  5. i've always felt like my children are making shrines when they do things like this. and i'm with you: i will so miss the things underfoot when they're all gone.
