Sometimes

Sometimes I am grumpy and impatient.

Sometimes I eat ice cream every single night.

Sometimes the house is a total disaster.

Sometimes my babies have colds, luckily not very often.

Sometimes I am wayyyy sleep deprived.

Sometimes Darin doesn't get a day off.

And yet sometimes we run completely out of money.

Sometimes I hate my hair and get a very serious urge to shave my head.

Sometimes wildfires burn thousands of acres because it's so hot and dry.

Sometimes naptime doesn't work and everyone is cranky.

But....

Sometimes I know I am a good mom.

Sometimes I feel pretty.

Sometimes I get everything done I need to do.

Sometimes we have a fun, adventurous day together and the babies get to go to a splash pad for their first time, and also ride a merry-go-round (merry go wheel).















And always, always, even in the hard moments, I am so grateful for this little family of mine.

Seeing the pure joy on Lucy's face at the splash pad just about melt my heart. I love you & the momma you are; you truly are an inspiration! You are vibrant and REAL and honest and humble. Love you so.

i was thinking of you monday night, when starhawk was in sebestapol, giving a talk on social permaculture (nurturing communities) and i was >this close> to calling you up and both of us high-tailing to catch it.
but sometimes life gets busy.
sometimes we are very sleep deprived.
and sometimes it's impossible to leave your kids on a monday night. :)

Love your posts Heather, makes me feel close to you even though we don't get a chance to talk often. I feel all of these same things....it's like we are all connected as mothers, wives, and women. I need to try your coconut sprinkled on my sometimes nightly ice cream, that sounds divine.
