the stars aligned and all 3 napped

Taryn and Jude have a fitness class on Mondays.  We usually come home and Jonah wants to eat right away and go down for his nap.  I walked out from putting him down and found this.  I’ll be honest, I sat and stared in disbelief that all 3 little kids were napping and at the same time.  That never ever ever happens.  Taryn and Jude don’t nap anymore, so for one to nap would be a big deal, but both?!  It was so quiet in the house, it honestly made me anxious and nervous….I didn’t know what to do with myself!  So I ate lunch in peace, I didn’t have to share […]

The view from my desk at approximately 7:22 pm

Tuckered out after getting up at 4:45 am this morning with a bad dream and not going back to sleep.  She almost made it to the bathroom to take a bath, the door is *right there*.  The arguement as Jase lifted her up, all limp noodle like, and gave her a bath was priceless.  She kept fussing at him for keeping her awake in the tub.  I could picture the scowl and I wasn’t even in the room.  Bless his heart.  Surely, at some point, she’ll stop doing this and I can get the book printed.  I’ve enjoyed this series of images so much, they make me laugh and I […]

10 on Tuesday

1.  Our Thanksgiving was awesome.  I hope yours was too.  If you want details about ours, you can find them over on Finding Our New Normal, complete with menu and photos.  I get a lot of questions about how we eat so I thought a pretty detailed post would be fun.  I will say all those carbs had me running for salad and extra fermented food for several days.  But maaaaan, it was good.

2.  Speaking of good great food, I got an email yesterday from the Executive Director of the Non-GMO Project.  Shortly after that, this happened.  Way cool right?!  That photo was taken at the Real Food Rally in Austin in October.  You can […]

5 on Tuesday cause I don’t have 10 in me.

1.  Only 5 on Tuesday because I’m barely trucking along on less than 3 hours of sleep.  After Ty’s game last night he got hurt messing around on the sidelines.  Hurt to the tune of an ER trip after a sharp piece of metal dove in to the palm of his hand.  Ouch.  I am not a fan of hospital or ER’s as they tend to question our crunchy ways.  Or really, I tend to question their medical ways a bit more than they are used to and it ruffles feathers and I’m one of “those” people.  Works for me, I like to read labels on medicine bottles and question the necessity of medical interventions.  But I’d rather avoid it […]

Another entry for her book…

I’ve been glued to my computer just about day and night in an effort to proof my marathon of 8 sessions in seven days a week or so ago.  Sunday afternoon, while sitting at my desk, I heard Taryn stomp in my office grumbling something about “Super Duders are too loud….”.  A few minutes later I turned around in my chair and saw this.  I ran and got my camera.  Not sure what the rush was, she stayed like that for several hours until she smelled dinner.  My girl loves her some good sleep.
