sanity music...

an addressed envelope with handwriting i know all too well
a hand written note to "boo boo's" on a yellow sticky
an artist. a surfer. a songwriter i have grown to love
a dad who has loved him longer
{ugh! that always happens}
a daughter that steals his cds to save to her itunes library
a late night in a quiet casa
an over exposed MAC snap
a creative mind on the move
music that soothes my soul
lyrics that light it on fire...

I've got an angel
She doesn't wear any wings
She wears a heart that can melt my own
She wears a smile that can make me wanna sing
She gives me presents
With her presence alone
She gives me everything I could wish for
She gives me kisses on the lips just for coming home

She could make angels
I've seen it with my own eyes
You gotta be careful when you've got good love
Cause the angels will just keep on multiplying

But you're so busy changing the world
Just one smile can change all of mine
We share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
Umm umm umm uhhhhhhmm

sanity music.

fridays folder...

so every night like clock work,
i go through a little routine...
i unpack the backpacks hung in their places,
i go through folders filled with papers and more papers
from a school that sends home paper after paper about recycling.
{don't get me started....}
sign here. check here. click here.
return to folder.
reading log - check.
spelling words - check.
homework - check.

and go through the "keep at home" side of the folder.
all completed work. good work. creative work.
and sometimes work that just makes me LOL.

celebrating the 100th day of school


"yes, mama."
"ummm, are these wrinkles?!?"
she chuckles, "yes!"
"are you kidding me?! that is the cutest thing ever!"
she giggles and skips off to her room wrinkle free.
i laugh that laugh i love so much.
did she intentionally draw those cute squiggly lines on her face
that i am continually fighting?


i will fight you squiggly lines!
where's the botox?!
ummm i mean-
where's the eraser?!?!

but in my 100 years...
oh- how i hope the squiggly lines that are never erased off this face
of ever fighting squiggles-
are those of laugh lines from my daughters creative, excellent,
100% spelling tests, and cutest drawings imaginable.
those squiggles i will let grace my face any time.

here's to squiggles, erasers, good grades and vanity!

happy friday!

seems as though these days are consumed with
the fire bike
speed bumps
takie talkies
{walkie talkies}
a park
beautiful winter weather
rosy cheeks
green eyes
2 rockstar kiddos i will claim
kisses for the best mama in the world
a canon consumed with capturing my bliss.

what's your 20?
@ the "pawk"

this little journey of consumption is becoming more fun everyday.
how i love to see them play
interact with their friends
become who they are becoming.
listening to their stories via the talkie talkie is the funniest thing you have ever heard.
having a heart big enough to consume all of the joys of my little wonders is
quite amazing.

they consume me.

ps. dylan is four and rocks that bike...just sayin!
lex is six and loves to tell him how to do it.

...and you fill my life
you're everything to me
there's nothing else i need anymore
and i know you are everything to me
and there's nothing else i need anymore

there's nothing else i need...

as long as the bike matches the jacket
the jacket matches the umbrella
the shoes show her freshly painted toes
the hair is perfectly messy
she can still steer her bike with the accessory in tow
the fashionista is swell with whole bike thing.

"mom, i'm a little chilly, i'm going inside"

as long as he can go super fast
his skids are AWESOME!
he can go super fast
he can do wheelies
he can go super fast
he can pop the curb
he can go super fast
the little boy in the paul frank jacket
is ready to go pro.
just ask him.

"mom, did you get that AWESOME trick?"
"mom, did you see that?"
"mom, wait this one will be better!"
"mom, did you get a picture of me on my bike?"
"mom, watch this!"
"mom, let me see that picture of me on my bike."

boy vs. girl
it's awesome.
