2.8.16 From where I stand…

From where I stand…

Today was really hard. Indigo had his yearly well child visit with his Pediatrician. What does this mean? I explained a lot of things that I have to explain and talk about often while the doctor ticked off boxes. This is hard for me. This is my kid and he’s amazing and I need to advocate for him and articulate things about him that I never thought would need explaining.


So although it was a hard day it was also a good day. A day we grow together and learn and push on.

From where I stand…

I’m joining a friend in creating a blog post every day for the year of 2016 that begins with “From where I stand…”

I actually started yesterday but needed to update my abandoned wordpress site.

From where I stand, it’s 10:40 am. The baby toddler dude didn’t get to bed until after 2:30am and nursed a couple few times once we could get to bed. However tired I am now, this life is a gift and our future is looking up.

imageI get to hang out with this cool kid every day, which is the hardest work I’ve ever done and so amazing. I’m learning SO much from him.

The dishes rarely get done these days and the laundry just rotates in piles but I wake up to sweetness and opportunities that most do not get to.

From where I stand, I see a little play scene that my hubby set up for the baby toddler dude before he left for work so that I get a few short moments to sip coffee while little guy plays.

On to the next day!

From where I stand, there are bits of yarn waiting for me to touch it. I’m planning a birthday cake, looking at preschools and starting a bullet journal. All good things that require of lot of my free time and just a lot of me in general.

This year my word for the year is “Brave”. I will be brave. I will do things that I’ve always wanted to do but have been putting off because I didn’t feel brave enough. With that has to come the obvious thing, my first tattoo. This will be so good! Ja! Stay tuned, there will be more to come of this.

A Different Year

It has been a new different kind of year for us.  It has been hard to branch out, hard to over extend ourselves (although we have more than ever this year, just in a different way) and hard to say no (of course; this is a long time issue I deal with; I think this is especially hard for females but that is a different conversation…).
While I am learning to say “no” more I am also feeling like I can say “yes” more. This is very interesting and powerful. The power of “yes” is very freeing and so is the power of “no”.

These are just some every day thoughts.
