Genius: okay, so Meredith still sleeps in bed with us at night. It’s always a struggle to actually get the lights off without screams and cries. The other night I was so tired that I really needed to sleep (aka every night but especially this one) but she NEEDED to change her baby doll’s diaper. We have this handheld light (not exactly a flashlight, more like a camping light) that is actually David’s but she had confiscated to play with. I let her turn it on and I told her to turn it off when she was done and I went to sleep. It totally worked; it gave her the transition she needed. This light is staying on the bedside table…

week in the life 2014 : some thoughts on the process

November 6, 2014

Last week I decided to take part in the intense documentation project called week in the life that was started by one of my favorite memory keeping bloggers, Ali Edwards. Here are some thoughts on my first time taking part, along with some of my favorite photos from the week. Early morning list-making and coffee-drinking. She had just woken up. She is attached to this dog and blanket right now. / Liam at the doctor. Nebulizing. Bible study and nursing. A sticker Meredith gave me that I had forgotten was there. / Punching the code at daycare to pick up the kids. My current desk at work. Computer time while David was on kid duty. It was a gorgeous day…

keeping up with personal projects when you feel overwhelmed

November 4, 2014

Life has been busy lately! Between all the sicknesses in our household, a spirited toddler, more patients at work, and an overbooked schedule, I haven’t had much time for myself. That’s okay; it’s the season of life I’m in and I know it will come and go. You probably know by now that I am a very goal-driven and aspirational person. I always have personal projects that I’m working on, both big and small, and even more that I’m dreaming up. I actually become even more inspired when I am busy with other things. When I’m active physically my mind is active as well. Lately I have so many ideas and dreams and hobbies that it can be easy for me to…

working mama files: johanna from these prices

November 3, 2014

Working Mama Files is an interview series designed to support and encourage working moms along the path to having a fulfilling life. Today I’m delighted to host Johanna from the blog These Prices. She is a beautiful writer who never fails to inspire me and touch my heart. She has a deep faith and I have so loved following her story of the adoption of her two children. Recently she made the transition to stay home with her kids, but before that she had a full-time job in ministry. I’m excited to share her with you today! Who lives in your house? My husband Aaron, me, Harry (3.5) and Posey (22 months). Plus two dogs, Eller and Scout. Up until recently…
