Ten Things for the Weekend

August 17, 2018

1. This week’s mantra: “Life is just a series of moments, and it’s amazing how many of them we miss, rush past, or disrupt because our minds are elsewhere, anticipating the future or dwelling on the past. But a moment of joy or connection is its own justification, not a means to an end. Play can just be fun. Fart jokes can just be funny. Daydreaming and wasted time don’t have to be framed as developmental tools; they’re just nice.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The top piece of advice I’d give fledgling parents (which I wish I could follow better myself) is just this: Be aware of those moments, and never turn one down. If you face a choice — a moment or a chore, a moment or bedtime, a moment or work obligations, a moment or your damn iPhone — always choose the moment. They seem abundant, sometimes too abundant, in those early years. But childhood isn’t linear; it seems to accelerate faster and faster as it progresses, and when it’s over that set of memories will be all too finite.”

Ten Things for the Weekend

August 10, 2018

1. This week’s mantra: “When our sisters are vulnerable, when they are giving birth to new life, new ideas, new ministries, new spaces, when they are under attack, when they need their people to surround them so they can create, deliver, heal, recover…we get in formation. We close ranks and literally have each others’ backs. You want to mess with our sis? Come through us first. Good luck.”

An Early Morning Family Adventure and Reflection

August 9, 2018

This post was sponsored by Hudson Tailor.

Monday marks a huge change for our little family. If you listened to yesterday’s episode of Mom and Dad Made a Podcast or read this post you know that Zack is starting a new job that will require him to be at the office from nine to five Monday through Friday. This job will help foster Zack’s long term career, will provide stability and benefits for our crew and we believe will be a healthy, much needed change for our family. As challenging as change can be, we are over the moon excited and are looking forward to what this means for our family in the future.
