I just discovered a new delight :).
Tim Horton's Cafe Mocha.
I am likely behind the times with this one, and that's okay. I am secure enough with myself to admit out loud that I don't get out as often as I used to or even as often as I'd like. My usual daily chatter includes referring to myself in the third person (mommy said!), answering "why" a lot, and coaxing a budding vocabulary from my youngest. (I swear I talk more now than I EVER DID when I worked outside the home!!)
But back to getting out. And about. And that new delight :)......
Tim Horton's Cafe Mocha - a leisurely stroll around a bookstore - and 5 uninterrupted hours of time to sing at the top of my lungs (reserved for alone-time in the family van!!), pray, browse, read, ponder and breathe.
Hmm hmmm good.
Now doesn't that just make you wanna cozy up in some outta the way TH franchise for just a few quiet moments :)...

... that a pregnant woman puts out as much energy baby-building as she would if she were mountain climbing.
i've been pregnant twice and have no doubt about it!!
what i'd like to know is if "they" studied how much energy a mother releases as she chases toddlers, intervenes as referee, serves as nurse, night watch, and chef (cook just sounds too un-classy!!), acts as listener, encourager, teacher, spiritual guide and disciplinarian AND chauffeur.
with that kind of resume, i think it is quite reasonable that at the end of the day, a mother will feel like she's run a 10-km marathon AFTER scaling the aforementioned mountain!!

How can it be, that even the "simplest" technology sometimes leads to the greatest frustrations...
I look forward to sharing this adventure with you!
