making quality time


This is the month we've been gearing up for. I'm teaching 4 nights a week (teaching Asian Bodywork at the Arcata School of Massage and teaching my own form of bodywork for the first time--blissbody therapy is the working title), editing, still trying to keep up forming LUNA Kids (our cooperative preschool) and basically being a full-time mom with Steve and I picking up the pieces late each night.

The good news--I came home to fennel, jerusalem artichoke and potato gratin; chard, raisin and pine nuts; and freshbaked shortbread! Gotta leave them to their own devices more often...go Steve!

But...it takes its toll on the children, all this crunched time and chaos. All of a sudden Isaiah can't put on his light-up sneakers by himself. I asked him today why, after all this time, he suddenly has difficulty putting them on. "Because I want to be your baby."

And I'll take every baby minute I can get.
