It’s the last day of school. Lucas is home with a fever, earache, and sore throat. He is moaning and crying. I have a work deadline. This is not a good combination. I’m finding it tough to be the compassionate, comforting mommy he needs right now. Not sleeping well last night is a major factor: Not only was Lucas sick and up and down (and awake at 5:45 a.m.), but Asher was feverish and fussy due to routine vaccinations he got yesterday. Timing is everything, ya know? He has a knack for getting very sick on important days. Later this afternoon, I’ll take him to the doc. 

Breathe in. Breathe out. Summon patience and grace. Breathe in. Breathe out.

  • About Sara

    Thanks for visiting! I’m Sara, editor and writer, wife to Ian, and mother of two precious boys. I am living each day to the fullest and with as much grace, creativity, and patience as I can muster. This is where I write about living, loving, and engaging fully in family life and the world around me. I let my hair down here. I learn new skills here. I strive to be a better human being here. And I tell the truth.

    Our children attend Waldorf school and we are enriching our home and family life with plenty of Waldorf-inspired festivals, crafts, and stories.
