Dude...I'd love to say I read your blog...but I couldn't help staring at the boys beautiful face. He is getting more and more handsome everyday! By the way...it goes way too fast and I've tried every way to slow it down. Can't wait to see you and the familia!


He is so beautiful. I read your post this morning, then read this tonight and it reminded me of the MonkeyFight idea, so I came back to paste it here....

An elderly Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life… He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me, it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One wolf is evil—he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, competition, superiority, and ego. The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too.” They thought about it for a minute, and then one child asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win, Grandfather?” The Elder simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Thank you so much for sharing that story, Elizabeth. I've just started a new site you might be interested in. let me know what you think. http://theblissarchive.tumblr.com/


be aware of the monkeys, such an perfect reframe.
can i borrow that adorable boy's hat please?


I think "calming the monkeys in my brain" will be my new mantra...it describes the state of chaos in my head perfectly. But it does calm down when I truly interact with my boys so I think you are on to something there. Love the story Elizabeth posted as well.
