sick day.
Nolan takes longer than usual to go down for his nap, and once he does, I turn on Wild Kratts for Cal and disappear into my book. Once he passes the hour mark that means I have to start feeling guilty, I pause the show and ask him what he wants to do. "Let'...

Sand castles.
Last weekend, we camped on the Olympic Peninsula. We spent most of our twenty-four hour visit on the beach, searching for sea creatures and running in the waves.  I stayed up at camp while Nolan napped, then hiked down the bluff to Scott and Cal building a ...

100 breaths.
Embed from Getty Images In the creativity course I'm taking, we are focusing on Space this month. Space to create, space to be a woman in addition to a mother, space to breathe. Unfortunately, space is closing in, rather than opening up.  Erin Loechner reve...
