One Chicken, Three Ways

One Chicken, Three Ways

Responding to natural disasters like the earthquake in Nepal can be on an emotional level; we grieve for those injured, dead or lost. It can also be a practical response through giving to various aid organizations. Another natural response is gratitude that my loved ones are safe and thankfulness that our needs are met.

The musty scent of old books in a dimly lit room with shelves towering overhead and dust particles dancing through the air is kind of like heaven, no? The boys and I went with our friend Diane to Lawrence Books in Vancouver where she let Levi pick out an armful of children’s books for his upcoming birthday.

My greatest fears are simultaneously what will happen to my children and missing out on what is happening to my children right now. What will happen to my children is basic and primal. It’s a dog eats dog world. Not every one is nice or sane. The crosswalk can be fatally missed.

Hi friends! It’s time for a closet clean out and I’m selling some of my favourite designer pieces! Why would I sell any thing gorgeous and loved? Two reasons. First my body has gone through a gazillion changes in the last six years and some of my all time closet faves don’t fit any more (this includes shoes). The second reason is a few of my wardrobe pieces were purchased specifically for photo shoots regardless of whether they were the perfect fit for me. On May 1st I will be opening an online pop up shop where you can purchase these items. The store will list price (including shipping), size and show a picture of the wear on the bottom of the shoes.

Earlier this week I had the absolute joy and privilege of standing by two of my dearest friends as they welcomed their first born son into the world. I was their doula/birth photographer and for the first time since my own kids were born I stayed up for nearly 48 hrs straight. Here’s to the adrenaline that comes with labour and delivery!

There was a time when an all-nighter wouldn’t have tossed me for more than a day but I’m still feeling it now. Whew! Regardless of fatigue I attended the store opening/redesign celebration of Ecco on Robson Street Vancouver the next day.

Now is the time to memorize the details. The tuft of hair that won’t be tamed, the mischievous smile as their hand dips into the Vaseline, the belly laughs, the slobbery kisses and the way their small, dirty hand looks resting in my own.

What a glorious weekend we just had. Our days were spent basking in the warm sunshine, exposing our blinding white skin to the sun’s welcoming rays. We didn’t stray far from home, instead enjoying our backyard and these wonderful popsicle stick creations.

We’ve had a month of rough nights with baby # 3 which has left me feeling pretty zombified much of the time. His waking has all been related to teething and he’s up several times a night. Thank God he is so dang cute.

At some point yesterday I realized we weren’t going to make it out of the house due to inclimate weather and nap time. It then become a scramble to come up with as many craft activities as possible to keep the boys busy.

It was crafting madness.
