it's still night time. I couldn't sleep in the wee hours this morning. I had a dream that Sarah smiled a big, huge smile. I was so bummed when I woke to find 'twas a dream. Sarah smiled just before Christmas but she hasn't blessed us again since. I'm told this is normal for a baby whose corrected age is barely 4 weeks old.
Rachel Coleman singing in my head: Sarah will do what Sarah will do when Sarah is ready to do it (Shine). She's followed by Rachel- the- neonatal- specialist saying, "Tincture of time; all she needs is a tincture of time." The baby we didn't have to wait for is teaching me patience.
I'm looking forward to fully embracing the ordinariness of Ordinary Time.

To be fit and happy:-)
I scrapped the Fat Flush Plan . I've come up with my what-works-for-me-and-my-baby plan. Still looking towards total detachment. Still eliminating those food categories that I know are problematic for me personally. Still inspired by Jen's Saint Diet. I'm loving T-Tapp and Wii Fit every day.T-Tapp is a very efficient 15 minutes--you've got to love that in a workout. And Wii Fit? Let me sing the praises of anything that gets the entire family moving, laughing, and enjoying both exercise and each other in the middle of the winter!
Towards a real education ...
We settled into a good pattern yesterday. I'm so relieved to be back at it! The children seemed glad for the rhythm and structure too.
I feel a visit to the craft store coming on.
that every day this week is as peaceful as yesterday.
The laundry is nearly all caught up!
One of my favorite things ...
time for prayer.
The re-boot of the soccer, basketball, and ballet schedule. Epiphany today. Doctor for Sarah and midwife for me. My birthday is this weekend.
Paddy came back from Florida with a concussion.This isn't a picture of a concussion in action--it's just a random picture of Paddy's head and a soccer ball.
