My Little Man

Like mother like son. My small man took on lunch making duties today, and decided on a frozen thin crust mushroom pizza. He set his timer, and settled on the floor in the kitchen to wait. If you know me, you know that this is my favourite place to sit when I need a minute … Continue reading My Little Man

We’re Trying

We’re doing our best. We are tired, we are anxious, but we are trying. She and I are very alike, which inevitably leads to head-butting. We both feel anxious at times, and sometimes those times coincide. We both have autoimmune disorders, so I try to empathize, but sometimes my empathy button is broken, and I … Continue reading We’re Trying

Thankful

My Raggedy Old Man Is Getting Older

You move slowly now, and jumping is harder. You aren’t that interested in knocking Christmas ornaments off the tree anymore, and you are picky about what you will eat. You are vocal about what you want and are patient and loving to your kids. You notice when our schedule shifts and we aren’t where you … Continue reading My Raggedy Old Man Is Getting Older

It’s not perfect

Life isn’t perfect. Especially right now. COVID numbers are going up in my province. There was an exposure at my kids’ school that by the time I found out about it, it was too late to quarantine them. I spent more money in October than I should have, so in November I am feeling the … Continue reading It’s not perfect
