the part i like least about being a mother is....

....lately i feel like the world's biggest bully. i avoid conflict by nature but it's getting harder these days.

"no jumping on the couch.  if you don't stop you'll have to play by yourself on the floor.  1.... 2.... 3.... okay, sorry. no more couch!" (whining)

"joey! no barking! you bark again during audrey's nap and your voicebox is mine!" (sulking)

"audrey, get your hand out of your pants.  no nakeds today.  i said no babe (grabs hands) we don't do that." (whining)

"no, i already settled on making this for supper.  i don't have time to make that." (sulking)

"we don't play with mama's stove, it's not a toy. no climbing. if you don't stop you'll have to leave the kitchen." (whining)

 i love those rainy autumn days when time seems to grow heavy. those days when you continue to wear your pajamas a little later in the morning, put a little extra honey on your toast and buy the five dollar latte to prolong the feeling.

blanket for baby elijah

our good friends (and audrey's Godparents) matt and teri just welcomed their first baby boy last week.  many years to matt, teri, big sister madeline & new baby boy elijah!

i forgot to snap a photo of the reverse side, it's a white furry fabric i had leftover from another project.  perfect for new baby snuggles :)
