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.


my hope

My niece has the most amazing memory. Occasionally she’ll come up with something that I can just barely recollect and it blows my mind. Remember, she’ll say, when J was born and you took me to see him and they were selling books in the hospital and you and Uncle N bought me one? Amazing.

My hope for this blog is to put words down to highlight the little things in life that generally escape me all too quickly. I love the little things, they are what make my days complete.
