If you’ve tried to order a necklace in the last couple of weeks you probably noticed I had to close the floodgates on mother’s day orders! You guys are amazing. I have had a fun and also overwhelming time trying to balance Ben and the jewels. In these moments it’s so important to ask for help and have learned once again how wonderful it is to include others in your process and stop pretending that you can do it all alone. Ha!

I have been inviting different mom friends to come over and sit with me each day while I bead and wrangle the babies when they get fussy. It has been a really wonderful way to spend time with people. So thank you mamas! Bethany, Maggie, Karina, Carolyn, Suzanne, Athena, Natasha… I still have a lot more to do but I am on my way!

I have also noticed that Ben has been particularly fussy this week and resistant to napping. It’s as if he knows when my attention is split, when I am not completely present and connected and demands the very best of me. If I am willing to let my agenda go and just be with him, things go so much smoother.. And yet I have a real deadline I am working with. So much more to say on this topic, but I must get back to work. Looking forward to this weekend when his amazing babysitter comes over!

In other news, after seeing the Oprah green episode I was really inspired to make at least one new permanent change toward greening our home (we already use green cleaning products and paper products) Then I found the Reisenthel bag ! They fold up perfectly in a little zip pouch that I store in my diaper bag and whenever I am grocery shopping, I just pull one or two out and voila! stylish, green mama. Matt and I reuse bags as much as possible but inevitably forget to bring our ginormous stack with us to the store. It is satisfying to finally answer the paper or plastic? question with my own bag.
