This is the first attempt at me getting out of the house in the evening so that someone goes to sleep without me....I've got a half hour before meeting a friend and I'm not exactly sure what to do at the moment....so I'll just sit and enjoy the sounds all around me....hopefully full blown meltdown is averted at the homestead and it's a piece of cake  #crossingmyfingersthisworks #gotosleep #twoselfiesinoneday

Nap time self haircuts and post nap chill out time.... #ourfrontdoorisred #doesntreallymatterhowyoucutcurlyhairitsallgood
Because eating homemade non dairy frozen dessert deliciousness is just a perfectly fine way to spend the morning.... homemade with almond butter and frozen bananas and blackberries and a few strawberries and fresh grapes and a bit of coconut milk 🍦 #icecreamforbreakfast

Today we had a meltdown here then a meltdown there then some throwing of this thing here then here then here before trying to settle for a nap now then later then even later followed by more meltdowns then more throwing things and we had a plan to go to the local concert in the park so we went there and saw friends and listened to Beatles songs (his favorite band EVER if you didn't already know) and ran around barefoot in the park before finally heading home where he promptly fell asleep in the car ("did you have fun?" "Yeah" "are you going to sleep in the car?" "Yeah" " are you awake?" "Yeah " .... "are you sleeping?" 💤💤💤💤) so I had to try to bring him inside and get him ready for bed still sleeping but instead the day was capped by one last epic battle of a meltdown before finally calming down and falling asleep .... it was a really great day 🎶☮️💜 more in stories #keepingitreal #grittyparenting #thisistwo

A morning filled with apples (more in stories) and a little bit of apple art.... and then way more cartoons then usual until he told me it was time to go upstairs but I sure got a lot done because the kid was occupied (although I would hear him occasionally "mom where are yooooouuuu!!" but then he would forget about me again) .... the top of the fridge and the area near the front door along with my various project supplies never looked so clean #keepitreal #artistmama #notashamed

Mama forgot she had scheduled a facial back when she got her birthday massage in February 💟 guess she's taking a little time for herself today #selfcare #alittlebitofzen #imnotgoinghomeyet
Yesterday we left some apples and free goodies for a kombucha making local mama outside our home then went to the local elementary school to drop off some cups spoons napkins toothpicks bowls we have held onto for too long but I didn't want to dump before heading off to a local grandma's house to pick up a box of trains and tracks we were in search of and she added an extra box of wooden vegetables for play cutting as well as some books and we left behind a bag of Gravenstein apples just because we are loaded this year.... it feels good to pass off the things you don't need and to receive things other people no longer use....#ourfrontdoorisred #unconditionalgiveandtake #summerpurge

#colemanbooneanothermontholder 💘🚂another children's museum visit and there are so many kids and activity that it's safest inside this fake train (actually maybe it's just the safest place for mom😬)

Every once in awhile over the last 2 years of our lives together we have stopped here for a photo.... one of the first times we went out into town on our own (at 3 months old) just to feel centered after he was born was to walk through this garden.... the sling we were using was this same color purple #colemanbooneallwrappedup #sakurabloommystic 💟swipe for the action photos of me asking for a kiss😚💕#consciousclothing

Spending time with dear friends throughout the day and creating fun memories.... 🌈a fleeting moment captured on screen that will quickly disappear when the next kid comes over to press the big green button.... ❇️a phone call ~ a text ~ I knew exactly what they both were going to tell me when I answered ~ another bit of sad news for my family as my grampa passed this morning ~ he will be missed 🖤 #getintheframe #familyphotos

Running off to greet dad arriving home....evenings are spent getting out the last bits of crazy toddler energy and we run back and forth among the trees and our gardens carving our footpaths ever deeper with each hurried step....peals of laughter as we play a not-so-perfect game of hide and go seek which is more like mom runs away with kid close behind after pretending to close his eyes peeking between fingers....he will figure it out one day the nuances of what a really good game of hide and go seek can be.... until then we will play this variation🌙 #ourfrontdoorisred #toddlergames #wildandfree #letthembelittle #findthekid

Waiting for a kiss from a friend is the sweetest thing💘 (although it didn't quite play out like he hoped!) #bestfriends #toddlerfriends #kissmedonthitme 😘#fiestyduo
Road trips used to be the most horrible experience ever when this kid was a baby.... he cried constantly and we had to stop all the time and it would take us forever to get to our destination.... finally at 2 years old we can make it to where we need to get to in the same time it took us pre-child.... now he'll say "you want me!" But give him snacks and something new to play with or hope for lots of trucks or machinery to be driving by and we are all good🚗beep beep #roadtrip #givehimmoresnacks #lollipopwillcurethat
