t is the first of May!

That means that for some of us summer has nearly or already arrived. For others (like us..) its still chilly at nights, but slowly and surely warming up during the day... The birds are out in force, the trees are in bud, the spring bulbs are poking up and blooming in brilliant bursts of colour. New & good things are all around. This is a time of deep & profound potential.:



I know that this is a rough time for some of our mamas & families..

Our thoughts are with you DID. whatever we can do to support you guys through whatever it is that is going on, please let us know.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I suppose since im starting this thread (its a miracle in itself!) i will begin by saying that things really can get better in a quick turn of events.

i have always known that, but in a few short days everything that i have been manifesting and waiting for has just happened. its incredible. i hate to say that when i know that there is bad going on for some of you, but i guess the point im trying to get across is that being open to the good in the world, really REALLY helps. and things can feel scary and bad and hard one moment and then get better, better than better, even.

We had almost given up on the idea of finding a place is kaslo and now we have the perfect house right in town lined up for november 1st. It is 2 blocks from the school..our dog is OK..its big and lovely and we can afford it!

yesterday i found out that i got the job that i had wanted, but lost because i told the mama we were planning on moving. it looks like i will be making about $12hr for 4 days a week doing childcare for 3 little ones! as long as i can, she is happy to have me. and its under the table, so any money i make will go straight to my savings..she had hired someone else after i told her of our plans, but it fell through so she called me last night asking if i wouldnt' mind. The best thing about it is her 2nd son (they are 3 boys) and ngaio just love each other. they play so well..completely get along and compliment eachother. she is over the moon! The oldest boy and elwynn get on really well too. her baby is younger thanrue and having a rough time, but we will get things smoothed out.

and i got my learners drivers license yesterday and actually drove and did really well. im so happy. a year from now i will have true freedom. its not such a long way away.

so, believe in & be open to the good things in the world. Things do work out how they are meant to!



bareclona, congrats on your baby boy!

i cant wait to hear how the universe unfolds for all of you this month.

Well I hope the universe unfolds in a less cranky-morning kind of way!

Yesterday DH let the dog sleep in the bedroom and she woke me up with the ear-flapping that I cannot stand, so I jumped out of bed to shut her up and forgot that I was supposed to stretch out my feet before I got up and I was in agony all day.

This morning, DH slept in, schlepped around the kitchen watching me do all the cleanup and make him coffee, then ate a COOKIE for breakfast right in front of Rowan (so of course she had to have a cookie for breakfast too) and then spent 20 minutes nattering with the landlord and tried to leave saying "the dog will need to go out at some point" as I was just sitting down - for the first time, and I'm not even supposed to be on my feet (wretched plantar fasciitis) - with my coffee. That didn't go over well, and he started whining about how he was about to head off for 8 hours at a job he didn't like, blah blah, and didn't seem amused when I pointed out that MY day was more like 14 hours and didn't end at 6. Anyway he stomped off to work without saying goodbye and I'm still pissed off. And Rowan is a crankypants, as sugar for breakfast is ALWAYS a bad idea.

Anyway. Sorry to be a downer. Otherwise, everything is lovely - spring has sprung, our leaves are fully out, the garden is growing, the weather is warm, I got all my summer clothes out, and we had really good pizza for dinner last night.

Hello, everyone! Happy May! Its so hard to believe that my first baby is turning five this month...!

We're all doing well, this morning we went on a school field trip to a local organic farm and the kids planted sunflowers and potatoes. Now we're home (with a friend who's staying till his mom gets off work) and I just made a big batch of popcorn and the kids are playing in the playroom happily. I'm just having a chill, happy day today. I hope things are going well for all of you!

Thinking of you and your family, DID

Happy May, everyone. I have a three and half year old girl and a three and half week old girl today!!! We're doing well- so grateful to have Matt back home again. I watered and tended to my slightly neglected garden plot yesterday, and was happy to see so many sprouting growing things. I have plans to get passport photos for the girls this weekend- Neela's expires today and Nora needs her first. I think getting Neela to pose will actually be the bigger challenge

Spughy, I hope the day and month improves for you

QofC, it sounds like a lovely day

And Helen, good luck with the packing and the move!

Barcelona, I don't know much about brother dynamics other than as adults- I come from a family of three girls and Matt from a family of three boys. As older teens and adults they're much louder and more physical than my sisters and I, but things are open and blow over quickly. Matt is amazed to be the man in a house full of females, especially after growing up with only brothers.

Fern, bless you. I ended April being really wound up about my teaching in the fall, and I was manifesting angst, worry, and desperation. May--now--is the time to focus on what I want and the resources I already have to get me there.

Barcelona, two boys... I'm right there with ya. Who knows what the future holds? Hopefully not conflicts solved with boxing gloves! (Maybe that's just on TV; I was one of three girls, too, so I have no frame of reference.) But come to think of it, I don't know that I've ever talked to a pair of brothers who didn't get into at least one fistfight as kids. My sisters and I were more the throw-things-across-the-room-at-you type or the set-you-up-to-get-in-trouble type. We never landed blows.

Spughy, maybe Sterling's unreasonableness was sugar-induced, too? The 14-hour days are tough, and when they start out bad...ugh. I hope your day got better, too, and that Daisy's ear itches stayed at bay! (For me, it's the licking. The noise of the dogs incessantly licking their rear ends makes me want to SCREAM.)

Mel, I think it's so funny that babies get passports. How long until they expire? They look totally different from month to month!

At school today, Fox had a massive blow out. So much poop landed on my shirt, down my skirt, and onto the floor that I wondered if I'd forgotten to put a diaper on him. The kids were aghast. I was aghast, and also covered in mustardy cottage cheese. But as we were talking about unintended pregnancies today in sex ed, it was rather fitting to see such a "real" moment. And who the heck travels with extra mama clothes?!?! I never even thought about it before, but I'll be keeping an outfit in the car for future spills.

Even if you don't believe in a meddlesome higher power, that sort of thing has to make you a bit suspicious.

Just to let you know, I saw a post from DiD elsewhere and things are on the up again for them. There's some truly unpleasant people in this world, sadly, but it's looking like her family will be OK. Keep praying though, huh?

Packing is going somewhat slow, but- you know. I love the house so much, I really do

HoneyTree, Isaac and the dog are looking aghast at ME because I made a very unladylike noise when I read that.

Fern, I'm glad things are working out again!

Spughy May the dogs ears be silent, the feet be better, and Rowan be less three.

What is the correct response to a small girl stomping around the living room shouting "Fee,fi, fo, fum, listen to the sound of the giants bum" [rude raspberry noise] with a squat? Is there one?

The correct response is "Fee, fi, fo, foo - now YOU must clean the giant POO!!!"

So far I'm having a better day. Nobody else is awake yet. Yesterday it took 4 hours to get Rowan out of the house, and then the only way I managed was a promise of a trip on a double-decker bus and a visit with the bunnies at the university. I managed to slip in a quick visit at the library to drop off some mildly overdue books & CDs and a stop to get my sister a birthday present, which I didn't manage to mail. This morning I am going grocery shopping all by myself and I will enjoy it.

Babies' passports last three years- at least in Canada they do. Neela's just expired passport has a photo of a huge six month old chubby face, and usually gets a smile from the customs officers. And the "rules" of passport photos apply to babies, too- they need to have a neutral facial expression and no smiling or frowning.

Sorry about the blowout, HoneyTree (though laughing a little, too).

My sisters and I have never had the big physical fights/blows that Matt and his brothers did. I've never been in a real fight, nor has my youngest sister. We once made plans to have a fight just to experience it once in our lives, but decided all to reasonably that we probably couldn't punch each other as hard as we wanted, so cancelled it. It sounds terribly childish, but I wanted to know if I could fight. In my close calls in life, my body seems to do flight much better than fight.

What does everyone think- are converse sneakers appropriate for a 30 year old woman? I'm having a big birthday next month, and I thought I was just needing new shoes, not having an identity crisis... my husband seems to think otherwise (though I kept my mouth shut when he bought the same skinny jeans that all his arty writing students were wearing right before his 30th birthday).

I start my CNA class in the morning. In fact I should be in bed but I wanted to let you all know that we are okay, just under a very horrible, stressful situation and I cannot devote a lot of time to being online at the moment. Lucius just celebrated his 3 month birthday, if you can believe that!

Okay, my allotted 10 minutes online is up. I'll try to check in as I can.

I'm glad you bought the converse, Mel! I definitely think you can wear them at 30, easily! Enjoy

DiD, I hope things start looking up for your family very soon, and that the course is going well.

Hope everyone is having a delightful day! I have finally recovered from an intense yoga-training weekend this past weekend, and am feeling great, ready to get on top of the house and life-stuff.

Soon, we are off to our co-op market to get raw milk, eggs, and some organic fruits and veggies...Later, I'll be spending an hour with a hard-of-hearing little girl, teaching her some ASL. Finley is happy today (as opposed to yesterday, which was *very* challenging). Overall, A good day.

Class is going wonderfully. My instructor told me I was a natural. Tomorrow I get my CPR certification and then we're going to orientation for clinicals. On Monday we get to go to a LTC facility for Alzheimer's patients to practice our skills, which I'm really looking forward to.

And the yoga training (and pregnancy- your new facebook photos show a beautiful bump!) for you, barcelona.

We're doing well here- loving the babyhood and a bit more confident and clear headed to enjoy it this time around. I can't say enough good things about being a more experienced mama

All is well here, too - DH and I went to see the new Star Trek movie last night with his brother and brother-in-law while Rowan played with DH's sister. A good time was had by all - we loved the movie and Rowan had a good time with Auntie Becky.

Off to the market & the recycling centre this morning... the weather is nice today too.

I hope if I keel over from heart troubles that you're around, Lydia. Congrats!

I wore myself out today - I went to 2 garden centres and spent a fairly obscene amount of money on bedding plants, and now both my veggie garden and my balcony are stuffed full and look pretty good already - in a month, they'll be amazing (provided there are no squirrel-related tragedies like last year). And I am tired and sore now, and I think I need a bath for several reasons.

Hope everyone had a good mother's day!

I had a lovely Mother's Day, I hope everyone else did, too! David took the best picture of me and the kids.

So, I'm thinking that Ellie will start piano lessons this summer. Killian was doing them, but wanted to take a break a few months ago. Now he wants to try again, and even though the teacher says she doesn't usually start lessons until kids are four, I think Ellie would do great. She's been in a full-day preschool all year and is very focused, plus she seems very interested in music in general. Anyone else started any music classes/lessons?

I still think Matt should get a vasectomy- I'm back on the @#$% elimination diet and have vowed that *if* we were to decide to have more kids that I should use a sperm donor :

Good luck with the packing.

Sounds like lovely mother's days, spughy and QofC

We made a trip to the market at Granville Island and browsed shops and tried on clothes this afternoon.

We're not doing any more classes or lessons for a while. We do have plans for preschool in the fall, though- we'll see how it goes. Neela told me she wants to go to school, but seems to think that she could start grade one and hang out with all of the cool big kids in the neighbourhood. Preschool may be a little disappointing.

Mel, I concur completely. It make so much difference to have even a faint familiarity with this whole parenting thing. Handling sleeplessness and baby fussiness is MUCH easier when you know there is an end to it.

Helen, hooray for being in the new house! Internet today? I have always had a hard time packing up the "other" house. It's demoralizing, in a way, to spend so much time and energy on somewhere you're leaving when you want to spend it all on the place you're going to. And kind of sad sometimes, too.

Started clinicals today. I get to help take care of a really nice man with Alzheimer's. He needs a lot of care and help with everything so it's very good practice for me.

The best part is, the nurse who is in charge of our clinicals said she would recommend me for a job at the facility. They have several openings and asked her which of the students were the best. She picked me and one other girl, out of my class of 14.

Are you all moved in, Helen? How is it?

We're just busy little bees here... we voted today, played at a friend's, made chili, perfected a recipe (rhubarb semifreddo...mmmmm) and now I think I can squeeze some cornbread in before dinner.

I've been cooking today, too - I made my second batch of homemade yogurt. My first one last week turned out not so much yogurt-y but very runny, but had a lovely tang. This batch is perfect! Lots of muesli for me this week!

Matt's grandfather passed away yesterday. He was 96 and his wife (also 96) passed in February. He was admitted to hospital just hours after Nora was born, so this wasn't unexpected. We spent the afternoon with his family yesterday and I think the girls were a nice distraction for them. Neela is sad and still working on figuring out the death in her three year old way.

In more positive news, we harvested spinach from the garden this morning that I'm eating for lunch. And next weekend is the Spring Festival and plant sale to raise money for our community garden.

Jen, it's funny, I was thinking about music lessons for Skye today- she's singing constantly. Isaac's brass band takes four year olds, especially siblings and I'm pretty sure they'd take her in September, and she'd probably be ready for a cornet by then. We have some half and quarter sized violins, though, so that's another option.

Spughy, the house is gorgeous. The mess is threatening to win the battle, though.

Helen mum to five and mistress of mess and mayhem, making merry and mischief til the sun goes down.
