Last week Patrick and I were looking through our archived printed blogs and I realized how I did much more writing back then. Much more writing about things the kids were doing and saying.
I loved reading about different phrases the kids were saying and goofy stories that happened. I think I have become more inhibited in my writing the last few years and I'm not sure why...but I am destined to change that. I think that I censor myself more, worried that blog readers will be bored by kid writing. Or, perhaps, that since I own my own business, I am more concerned about censoring my thoughts and opinions on the world.
What I realized when reading those archived blogs was that the writing is the only way to capture those fleeting fun moments, and its the writing which really brought laughter.

To attend births means to be comfortable with death and talking about death. Going into birth work 4 years ago, I wouldn't have anticipated death being such a part of working with couples bringing new lives into the world. Such moments in life make me appreciate the lives of my family and friends around me even more.
The vacation has been nice for us to all be together, as the past month has been a busy one for our family...with me moving the business. The dedicated time together has been fun. Also, every trip we take, it gets easier and easier. This time, the kids independently packed their bags, rolled their bags through the airport and have been overall well behaved.
