It was 18 years ago this month that my dad was diagnosed with a malignant meningioma brain tumour. At the time doctors only gave him two weeks to live, and he has continued to defy every prognosis! 💪🏻 Here he is last month at his granddaughter's 1st birthday/christening 😊
I was making dinner and I heard her rummaging through the garage. There were some groans of frustration but eventually she called to me. A sound so sweet to my ears and I try to remember to savor their little voices. But I came out to her in this meditation pose in her made by hand tent. You can't really grade his type of activity but over anything she learns in the classroom, her creative soul is what I value the most. And how grateful I am that I think to photograph it all. I may not be the artist I would like to be but for this, for now, it is exactly what I need it to be. From one memory keeper to another. Happy Thursday.
He's always fallen asleep on couches, beds and us. Never on anything hard and never on the floor. But after awakening from a nap too early, he was not happy and had a meltdown. After a minute of him freaking out on the floor, there was sudden silence. I look down and I see this beside me. Yes folks, my 4 year still needs naps and I'm ok with it 😂 | 93/365
Standing at the edge, the possibilities seem endless. She's ever moving, ever learning, ever enveloped in this thing called growing up. I blink and her nose twitches differently and her little smirk curls up like I've not seen before. Each evening I'm greeted with a new part of her, emerging, as if all the puzzle pieces to her adult self are rationed out daily. I cherish the littleness that's still so evident and I'm curious about the big girl that's lurking under the surface. #kindredmemories#galleryoflightfeature
👆🏻Right before he head-smashed me. Gonna need all the mom fuel today 👉🏻🍷🍷🍷 (I kid, it's nowhere near 5 o'clock 😉 so... kombucha?! Kidding again, it contains trace amounts of alcohol, and believe it or not, makes me tipsy!) So... good 'ol fashioned ☕️ it is. Happy Thursday, friends!
Chatting over morning coffee ☕️😂 these two officially have two teefers! I posted about their fav teething products on my blog! You know where the link is 👊🏻 (pssst- were also doing a huge giveaway with @elephantshoeteethingco to celebrate their 2 year anniversary! Check out @growingalittleloveshop to enter!)
Here are some throwbacks in the grand tradition of Thursdays and also in memoriam of a FEW of my older posts that were all deleted by some glitch when I temporarily deactivated my account. If you know the trick for restoring old posts please let me know 🙏🏼 I'm still waiting for a response from @instagram after three solid months of obnoxious messaging 😄

#TBT 📆 April 2014.
Over the course of Colt's tee-ball season years ago, we developed three rules.
Rule #1 : Have fun.
Rule #2 : Keep your hands to yourself. (This was mostly a dugout rule, but had plenty of on-field applications, as well.)
Rule #3 : Don’t play in the dirt. If you've ever watched a tee-ball game, you know Rule #3 was a work in progress, at best.
