Letter of the week "B"...

Community Helper week....

A co-worker has been working hard this week. Working with toddlers is a challenge. Here are some examples of the fingerprint art she made with the kids. The children really enjoyed exploring the feathers as they created their "B" birds...

A step forward from several steps back

Annika...

I started the process for Annika to come back and live full time with us. She needs her mother and I need her. I gave her a chance to live with her father but her needs were just not being met. It will be a journey....

A new life... a new idenity

MiMi.....

That shall be my new name. Lyn gave birth this morning. I am so proud of her. After 6 hours of labor and a natural birth she is doing great. She is more mature and together than a lot of mothers I meet who are 30 years old.

Missing Annika

I know I am not a perfect Mother or anywhere near a perfect person but I love my children. I know when they need me. I know when I have to be stronger than I gave even been. I know that my pain is worth protecting them. Annika deserves all the world has to offer and I want to help her achieve any goals she has for herself and to encourage goals she never even thought of. She is a star and a jewel. She is my daughter....

A mother's love is a magical thing. Without my mother I would not be who I am today. She makes me better. I have 9 children. One is an adult but I will always be his mother. Connor is distant but hopefully he knows I will do anything for him. Danny, Lyn, Connor, Annika, Evan, Eliot, Ben, Elaina,  and Etta you are all my reason for being on this Earth.

New Moon

New beginnings can be painful...

I miss Annika. Her father refused to let her come visit on her scheduled weekend. There is turmoil on the horizon.

Quick stop at the library

I picked up a few books for the kids and my class. I picked up Annika some interesting reads too....

Mama cloth....

When your mother gets some new Mama Cloth you just have to use your imagination....

What should her superpower be called?

A new Etsy sale....

My lavender vinegar hair rinse is a nice way to revitalize your hair especially after a day at the pool. Eliot enjoyed helping prepare the lavender water. She and Elaina helped themselves to the left over water and enjoyed some lavender tea sweetened with honey. I used the rinse on my own hair. Pop over to my Etsy store for your own...

Coolest sippy cup lids

I really like these. They are silicone and fit on anything. My favorite choice for a cup is a mason jar...
