EVERYDAY MOMENTS : 23/52 – for cuddles, giggles or carrying her around – everyday all day, she’s in my arms.
EVERYDAY MOMENTS : 22/52 – races all day, everyday.
The good thing is they aren’t very fast, yet – so I can still catch up or catch them. And they are usually pretty good at knowing which areas are okay for a race, and when to stop (basically every few steps. Because driveways, traffic, people, so busy!)
EVERYDAY MOMENTS : 21/52 – daily yoga practice.
This mornings practice was accompanied by the sweet sweet sounds of “Go Diego Go”, and a little half naked three year old mimicking every pose and trying to tickle me. Not quite as relaxing and physically challenging as it is in the studio, but I will take it – my day just does not feel complete anymore with out at least a little bit of yoga, even if it is interpreted.
*posting pictures of myself made me cringe a little – because my poses are not perfect. But really when will they ever be perfect? Never.
enjoying those EVERYDAY moments : 20/52 – Chris and his Ukelele, together forever.
Everyday even if it’s just for a moment, the ukelele is in his hands – it sounds better then my photos can describe, because well you can’t actually hear the awesome sounds/sweet sweet music. Also, yes that’s an exclusive Cars sticker tattoo sleeve – I know a 4.5 year old guy who’s specialty is sticker sleeves, if you’re interested?
enjoying those EVERYDAY moments : 19/52 – 4.5 years old and still naps like a champ.
Yesterday my nap champ, woke up from his nap only to fall asleep for a second nap on the couch. The after nap, nap is not an everyday thing. It’s much more of a once in a lifetime thing. He looked so tiny and so absolutely adorable I had to capture the moment, it took some stealthy jedi moves to mask the loud shutter (that thing is loud when everything else is silent, or at least my camera is).
enjoying those EVERYDAY moments : 18/52 – riding the streetcar.
Living in the city, not owning a car (I know, it sounds crazy) and relying solely on our two feet, the subway and streetcars (and buses when we have to) to get us from point A to B – means that every single trip, no matter how boring the destination (yesterday it was to the dentist) it’s always an adventure for them.
Sunday is Mother’s Day, and have to admit that I always feel a bit nervous throwing out the blanketed HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all statement. This is also sorta the reason why I didn’t write a mother’s day specific post, that and lately (to be totally honest) I stink so bad at planning ahead and getting important things like birthday cards, and mother’s day cards (sorry Nana and Oma, they will be late again) done in time. This happy and wonderful “holiday” also makes me feel a bit sad sending love and happiness to a specific group of women, when maybe (even though it of course would be meant with love) might put a little sadness in someone’s heart. So instead of a blanketed statement I will send out a long winded because this day should be a celebration of more then us “Mother’s”: Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s, mom’s to be, mom’s to one day be, mom’s struggling to be, grandmas, great grandmas, those mom’s who have lost, and those who have lost mom’s (I hope I included everyone). Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! And if you don’t celebrate at all, a very happy May weekend to you!
