I’m thinking of you.

Let’s find an artsy cafe

and contemplate life.

alone and still, I listen

traffic and wind chimes

Tell me what to do,

God. Goddess. The Universe.

I’m out of ideas.

“Lips off the toilet!”

Oh, the things I find myself

saying as a mom.

dreaming of sunshine

while enduring a few more

days of arctic wind

This little sun wearing sunglasses makes me smile. What is it? It’s a felted soap, lovingly needle felted by my partner in soap making, Clara. We have a little shop called Soap Fu on Etsy and we have a blast being creative and business partners. Clara is not loving winter much these days, so when she made these suns I knew exactly what was on her mind. Spring! Summer! Beach outings and flower picking! I like winter myself and Clara has asked me to stop praying for more snow. After this past week of single digit temperatures I am starting to agree. Come early spring! In the meantime, I am enjoying any images (and scents) of spring and summer. Everybody, stay warm in the meantime!

Cold

my cheekbones feel

as though they might

pop through my skin

Despite the negative air temp, I decided to walk little Han Min to school this morning. Previously this week, it was so cold I started the car and drove him, which felt like such a production considering we live next door to his preschool! Today I decided to brave the cold and do the walk.

The walk there didn’t feel so bad, perhaps because I was busy trying to hurry the little guy along. But going home, by myself, it felt SO cold! Running up the driveway, all I could think about was how cold my face was! I thought to myself, “I’ve never ‘felt’ my cheekbones before!”

seven little drops

of chocolate Stevia

makes my coffee sweet

.

If you are looking to reduce your sugar intake, I highly recommend Stevia! It has zero calories and it’s all natural. I’m happiest with a little sweetness in the morning so this has been a great find for me.

yesterday I failed

as a mom — today I think

I did much better

Yesterday was fraught with power struggles, time outs and tears — from my eyes and from Han Min’s eyes. Oh, what tension and conflict goes on in the mind of a three year-old!

Or for that matter — oh, what tension and conflict goes on in the mind of a three year-old’s mommy!

I was so distraught by the end of the day that Hubby plugged “my three year old won’t listen” into Google. He read pages after pages on parenting forums about this very topic to me as I withered on the couch bemoaning my role as a stay at home mom and life with a stubborn little boy.

Today didn’t see nearly as many power struggles, time outs or tears — although there were some tears, but not on my part, probably because I did gain some insight from Hubby’s Googling and picked up a few coping mechanisms.
