Parenting lesson #542,991

Toddler + cell phone = deleted address book, new wallpaper, complete reset.



Occasionally we all get a stark reminder that life can change in an instant. Every time it happens it takes my breath away and I spring in to high adrenaline, super stress mode.

We lost our daycare this week. It’s a sad, icky story that makes us ill to think about. G is fine in every way and what happened is still in the investigation stage but we are not going back. It’s sad for us, G and everyone involved. A week ago my husband and I had really tried to solidify a future that we’ve been hemming and hawing about for MONTHS. Then, a phone call came on Wednesday night.

Today our priorities have been realigned, a future we (I!) only dreamed of is likely right around the corner. The little man and I will be spending lots of time together, less time shopping and more time looking. 🙂 I am nervous, thrilled and anxious all at the same time.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

Adios summer!

A fantastic summer of firsts for the little man is over now. First birthday, plane ride (albeit an AWFUL one for us!), steps…what a wonder every day with him is.


We’re gearing up to welcome fall this weekend with apple picking! Apple crisp is sure to follow. 🙂
