• Go VOTE: It’s Your Duty

    Today’s post will be late because I’m standing in line with my family to vote.  I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to elections – my birthday (11/2) often falls on election day, I was most excited about turning 18 so I could vote, and I’ve never missed voting in an election since.  I also wanted to be the first woman President since I was in preschool (seriously, that’s what I was for career day starting at like age 5).  Voting is a right that many people struggled and fought hard to give us, and many more continue everyday to protect, and I believe it is our duty to vote.  I don’t care who you vote for (well, I DO – go Obama!) just go vote.  It’s what makes this country great.  And if you don’t – you are not allowed to complain.  Seriously, not ever.

    So go vote, then come back later today for a lovely wedding-related post.  Happy Election Day!

    •  One sick kid, one heat wave, one million ants in our laundry room... You win Monday. Sometimes you just gotta put the work away, or step away from the piles of laundry, and get outside for a reset. Or look at photos of bougainvillea from when you could get outside  #wavingthewhiteflagtoday #tomorrowisanewday  Summer. Heat wave. Mandatory. #calvinsfirstcone #calvins2ndyear
       When your shades and your shirt are meant to be  #charlesdashiell  On weekends, we nurse, cuddle, and nap together and it is my favorite. With the other boys I was always trying to get stuff done while they were napping. Since this is my last baby, I'm trying to really soak up all the moments I can -- one day I'll have plenty of time to get stuff done. For now I'll just be a hot mess that made the most of this baby time. Whenever I get a bit anxious about not getting things done, I re-read my favorite poem about motherhood: Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep. Song for a Fifth Child By Ruth Hulburt Hamilton #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies
