Moving homes

February 22, 2013

I’ve been thinking about moving my blog’s home for many months now and the time has come!  I’m now over at Good Hazel, hopefully blogging somewhat less sporadically.

Prop 37

October 31, 2012

Just a quick PSA to say that if you live in CA and you have any question about why you should vote yes on 37, let me know or visit PAN

Overheard at Whole Foods

September 19, 2012

Scene One:
Dad and two young kids walking behind us.  They were maybe 7 or 8.

Kid: Daddy, what is the difference between red and white wine?
Dad: They are made with different grapes and using different processes.
Kid: Well, which wine do you and mom prefer: red or white?
Dad: It depends on what we are eating, we like them both.

Scene Two
Two little boys (again maybe 6 and 8-9) standing by the prepared foods area, holding a bottle of white wine with no parent in sight.

Whole Foods Guy: You guys look ready for a fun night. What can I get you?
Older kid: We’d like two clam chowder pot pies.

Scene Three
Little girl next to us at check-out to her mom.

Girl: Mom! They have popsicles here made from Blue Bottle Coffee!

My last week as a stay at home mom

September 19, 2012

Next week I start my midwifery program.  I went to a mom and baby yoga class this morning and at the end we talked about how our heart is feeling (some of you are rolling your eyes I’m sure).  But I have to say that it was nice to say out loud that while I’m excited about school and I think it will be the best thing for our family, my heart is really sad about leaving Hatch.  It’s a kind of sad that I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around.  I was at the chiropractor last night for my first real adjustment since Hatch was born and it felt so strange lying on the table without a baby rolling around in my belly.  How can my baby already feel like he’s this whole other person who is getting more and more independent?  Sniff sniff.  I’m having to stop myself from waking him up from his nap to go cuddle him, although those who are taking care of him in the near future will be happy to know that he is napping.  Finally!

At least the only other girls he’s kissing right now are giraffes named Sophie.
