Battles & Blessings


  • Temper tantrums.  Complete with jello-legged toddlers who has somehow become ten times heavier than normal.
  • Lots of working.
  • Still struggling to find a balance that works for us.
  • Patrick has been working long hours, trying to finish a project.  He comes home for dinner and plays with Miles, then returns to the office for several more hours.  He is doing a stellar job of balancing it all.  I'm just looking forward to seeing him have a chance to relax a bit.  I worry about him. 


  • Returning to my week with a renewed energy and with a fresh store of patience.
  • A new camera that allows me to actually capture good shots of Miles.  And anything else that strikes my fancy. :)
  • Nice, warm, sunny weather for most of the week.  Playing outside with Miles has been glorious.
  • A notable increase in Miles' attempt to communicate his wants and needs.  He's learning a bit more patience, which means he's willing to spend more time when I'm not quite sure what he's saying.
  • The support of friends and family who help make every day a bit easier.
  • A night of shopping and dinner with Stacey.  Especially welcome at the end of a long day.
  • The prospect of a rehearsal with my wonderful kiddos this morning, followed by a baby shower for Bethany.  It's going to be a good day. :)
