It’s 9:45 and I am waiting for grandma to arrive to take Asher away for a couple of hours. Lucas is at morning camp. Today is the second day of summer vacation and I have sooooo much work to do and  all kinds of fear that I won’t be able to get it all done because my day care is spotty at best. This puts me in a state of anxiety while I’m trying to be present with the children, which is like trying to say "Om" while your heart pounds and your guts are twisty.

    I’d stay and be your nanny if I didn’t have to pay San Francisco rent! 😉 I had lots of fun yesterday with Asher. xoxo

    Oh thank you, sweetheart. I hope I didn’t sound ungrateful. It was lovely seeing you yesterday and spending time with you and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Thanks for taking time out of your life to spend it with my kiddos. It means a lot to them and to me.

    I may be able to help out here and there if this is something you would be interested it. I’m home all summer and with the exception of June 20-27 we don’t have any set plans. Also Em would probably enjoy it considering she’s an only child. We should talk.

    It’s a hell of a meditation, either way you look at it. I hope today offered you some windows of peace, and a few deep breaths, and a lot of smiles.

    Love you!

    No, no, no! You didn’t sound ungrateful at all. What you do is HARD and you do it so brilliantly. I really do wish I could be your nanny this week so you didn’t have to worry. What I did was really rather selfish by forcing Asher to spend time with me, and it just happened to help you out! 😉 Keep your beautiful head up, baby.
