Ten Things for the Weekend

October 20, 2017

1. This week’s mantra: “Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did – that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that – a parent’s heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.” – Debra Ginsberg

2. I might have binge listened to all the Sure, Babe podcast episodes. I can’t recommend it enough!

3. Joanna shared this post On Sexual Harassment. Read it.

4. I only follow a few strictly photographers on Instagram and @kaleyfromkansas is one of my absolute favorites.

5. I can’t wait to start reading Nurture: A Modern Guide to Pregnancy, Birth, Early Motherhood – and Trusting Yourself and Your Body written by the lovely Erica Chidi Cohen.

6. I had the pleasure of meeting Anna author of The Yellow Table last fall and I’m so excited to see her launching her new project, Yellow Table Weekly!

7. Zack and I have two domestic trips planned without Owen while we’re in Phoenix with family. What are your rules when you’re away? How often do you check in? Facetime or no facetime?

8. Lets talk about my dream breakfast. How delicious does this look?

9. We’re starting to peek at apartments in NYC even though it’s far too early. If you hear of any dreamy two bedroom apartments in Brooklyn available between December and January let me know! 😉

10. Do you ever have certain articles of clothing that just start to follow you everywhere you go? I think I might need to snag this Ace & Jig jumper.

  • Erica who wrote Nurture was on Jessica Murnane’s podcast, One Part Pod, and it was excellent! Can’t say enough good things about that podcast.

  • When I travel with my husband, we check in once or twice a day by phone (not Facetime to avoid tears) but our big rule is Don’t Dwell On Missing The Kids. We figure we might as well stay present, enjoy our alone time, and return to the boys fully recharged and happy to see them in a few days. Missing them will only ruin our vacayyy!

    That being said, have so much fun on your trips! I’m sure the time away will feel strangely refreshing.

    • I’m taking a page out of your book Marcella! That sounds like the perfect way to treat vacations without kids!
