In summer...

It's the eve before the first official day of summer break and I am so happy and excited I can't sleep, because I'm a belly sleeper and sleeping with a smile smashed into your pillow feels weird.

Tomorrow the library and grocery store with three darlings in tow. It feels like a privilege- and it is!

After weeks with terrible fatigue I think I may be getting some energy back. Hope it continues to return. Jocular adventures are best served with healthy levels of  energy.

Solo has a face that is unnaturally maleable. Bob has named it Solo-scaping. Marley made her attempt but she just managed to be adorable.

It seems pretty dumb to swoon over a man who will chase you down in an airport when the creator of the universe, the one who deeply understands all of  the law, let a part of himself die to make things right between us.

That's love.

My kids were too excited to sleep this morning. They couldn't wait to give me gifts for mother's day. But they still let me sleep till almost 9 and than brought me up a bowl of muesli with extra dates and raisins and almond milk and a handful of cards and flowers they picked from the grass. So beautiful and charming and funny.

Everyone came over for late brunch and Bob did a great job putting together six quiches, a casserole. Lovely.

Tonight after Bob read some bedtime books, Marley, Solo and I were looking out the window, smelling the insane delicious tree scent coming in from the backyard and listening to the cardinal who was at the top of the tree singing like crazy. And we talked about being birds that can fly where ever we want and pooping on cars... Ok the conversation might have been a little weird, but the air smelled good and the sunset was pretty.

I love being a mom!

And I love all the other moms in my life. My mom being foremost of course. Thanks Mom!
And remembering my grandmas that I got  to know, wondering about those I didn't.

So Happy Mother's Day! And Happy Birthday Dad!
