“EMBRACE MESSY HAIR.”

Amen! Bed head has a whole new meaning in our house. Oh, sweet lovely curls you sure do have a mind of your own…and it is only just the beginning.

Quote of the Week

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”                                                               — Martin Luther King, Jr

This is a day in history that will be remembered … Osama Bin Laden has been killed. A man that has become a household name for all the ugliest reasons. Will the big dark terrorist cloud that has been hanging above us since September 11th disappear? The one that makes us look over our shoulders at airports, on the subway and even in our most trusted places. As I think about the world that my baby will grow up in, I get a knot in my stomach. I can only hope that he will be embraced by light and love, and that the stars come out to play again.

Quote of the Week

It is so easy to try to listen to all the parenting advice out there…do this, do that, do the next thing? It is important to be “this” kind of parent. Next week some doctor somewhere will tell you the opposite. So-and-so’s baby did this or that. Wait a minute, did mine? Is that bad? It’s hard not to go crazy as we scan the internet, flip through magazines and chat at mommy groups. At the end of the day, we all just want to do and be the absolute best for our families.

Today, this mommy-baby duo has decided to filter the constant noise. Yes, much of it is beautiful welcome noise but some of it is unnecessary. My baby and I are falling into a comfortable routine known as “us” – well two-thirds of it. Daddy falls into this category too. Like it or not, this is who we are. The best part is…we know no one else can do a better job at this than we can! I like that.
