I’m hoping this can be a new semi regular series on the blog. And that may mean monthly. Or whenever I remember. 🙂 A mix of 5 links and 5 little things on a Friday.
I have so many articles open on my phone that I have read over the last month or so. It keeps going on the back burner to put them into a post. And I know I just need to do it, so I can start collecting new ones! So finally, here are just a few of the great articles I read in March and April.
5 Friday Favs:
Right around the time 50 Shades of Grey came out, Scary Mommy posted this gem about the 50 shades of breastfeeding. Nailed it.
Some excellent Louis CK Parenting Quotes in this post.
I Support Your Right to Share My Rights. Really great post from Momastery about LGBT rights. I rarely hear someone so strongly Christian speak on this topic with such a wonderful perspective.
This one made me tear up. Motherhood is truly the strongest bond. You’re a mom, you know.
5 Little Things:
Excited for: We leave for Maui in a month! So excited to get back to my home away from home after 5 years. And to show it to Clare! Hit me with your tips for traveling with a 15 month old.
Thinking about: How grateful I am that Chris works for Amtrak. Even when the unpredictability drives me up the wall, I am so thankful that it supports a huge part of our lives and allows me to pursue things I am really passionate about like writing, birth work and my podcast which also can and will contribute financially to our family in small and big ways in the future. But, I wouldn’t be able to be on that path if he didn’t have the stable career that he does, and I don’t take that for granted.
Hoping for: An active summer schedule. Teaching 2-3 zumba classes, maybe getting back into softball (it’s been FOREVER.) Exercise is a huge part of my self care and when it’s lacking, I can very quickly spiral to bad places.
Setting a Goal to: Finish up Part 4 of my childbirth work and make some headway on some other projects before we leave for Maui.
Loving: Spring weather. I know it won’t last long before it’s 105 here, so I’m trying to enjoy the cooler mornings and evenings while they last. Also – pretty much obsessed with the Bare brand cinnamon apple chips.
