life can be stressful.  news is sometimes hard to listen to. there’s work, there’s safety, there is so many things for big people to worry about, fight about, fight for, get preoccupied with. i’m committed to being a good mommy, and by that I mean, being present for their perspective, taking in their world view.  making time for play….laughter and lightness. affirm in them their utter preciousness. big people worries sometimes challenge my skillset. 

Life is playfulness….we need to play so that we can rediscover the magic all around us                                                                                                                                                         Flora Colao

picture via today’s flak photo it’s the freckles, the cool textured nature of the shot, and the innocence of their illustrative boyish energy, seems pure, which I long to protect (new mommy dreams, ok).

    here are the three things I have needed to be the best mom I can be to my boys now 10 and 16: a sense of humor, cirque du soleil-like flexibility, and a glass of red wine with dinner.

    Nina and Corine, Thanks for commenting and sharing your advice :) however do I obtain that kind of flexibility; is there a training course?
