She needs to stop growing so fast.
And so it begins..
Fair season is my favorite season.
Because I love love love this time of year so good…
My newly thrifted boots.
A little crunch in the ponytail.
Pretty sure fall wildflowers are my fave.
It got colder in a matter of seconds..
Can you see the spider web? Boo!
He likes to do yard work.
What does Autumn look like in your neck of the woods?
Sometimes it amazes me that it’s my responsibility to keep this house clean, feed these kids, do the laundry, make appointments, the list goes on… Some days I can barely manage to drag myself out of bed. I’m not the best mom on these days. I suppose it’s good that my kids know that mama is a flawed human too, though.
But that’s not what this post is really about.
After weeks of struggling, I decided whole-heartily to wean Sia Mae. I expected a new found freedom and maybe even a little extra time to myself. I DIDN’T expect to feel like a hormonal basket case. Has anyone else dealt with this? It took me several days to create the link of weaning to the depressed feelings. All it took was one google search to confirm. Isn’t is amazing how putting your finger on the reason and finding others who have been through the same thing makes all the difference. I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that this is “normal”…
Which is why I wanted to share my story. The more mamas that talk about these taboo issues, the less they are taboo. It also means less mamas feeling lost and confused, and I’m all about that. We’ve got enough on our plates already!!
In my free time I cleaned Kai’s room. Here’s a peak at my efforts. It’s definitely still a work in progress.
Whyy has it taken us over 6 months to move in?! Seriously ya’ll, we still have boxes that need unpacking!! Anyone have any tips for this? I’ve always felt that it works best if everything has it’s own place but it feels like I haven’t yet discovered all the little nooks and crannies of this place. Does anyone else struggle with never having enough hours in the day? Help!

Wondering about the fly swatter hanging in the closet? The boy likes to kill flies. What can I say?!
Finger painting fun and thrifting finds.

Lately, this week, around here, our first fruits are blooming and being harvested. laundry is being done(my favorite chore), we are attempting school-riding the wave of excitement from this kid’s table garage sale find. Bread baking supplies, fabric balls, and undies all in baskets. I love when I remember/get a chance to water my plants.
It’s been a slow and rainy week. Hello, October.
