Being Vegetarian

The fams and I went vegetarian in July. I think I posted about that. But, truthfully, we had been heading that direction anyway. Personally, I was really only eating meat that we purchased from small farmers and I knew they weren't torturing the animals. So essentially not eating meat out.

Parting is such sweet sorrow...

Going through the piles of "stuff" I have in my office. So much stuff that the babes has drawn/created for me in her creative times. It's so hard to part with because all of it is so sweet. Yet, if we keep it all, we would be considered hoarders, right? Too much stuff.
I am trying really hard to just toss into the trash. Maybe I should definitely take a photo with Artkive before tossing. Whoops, so much for this morning's cleaning spree.
I will do so for next time.

Conversations with the babe

Me, as we are folding laundry: Baby, I told you not to throw your socks into the laundry all bunched up! They don't get clean and they don't dry.

Baby: Okay. Okay.

Me: Don't say "okay." You always say "okay" and you don't do it.

Baby: Sorry.

Me: Don't say "sorry".

Baby, laughing: Okay, then what should I say? Caramel?

Hahha! I have the best kid.


Clean eats

Growing up, I can't say I had the best eating habits. A product of the American diet for sure, I was eating sugar ladened cereals (luckily I actually hated milk - esp non-fat, must've been my body's early intuition), LOTS of candy, loved McDonald's..etc.

Growing together

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about how they say your child picks you. When I look at myself now I feel like I have grown by leaps and bounds since I've had my child. I look at my life prior to baby and though it was much easier, it certainly wasn't as "full."

In having my child, I've had to do a lot of self reflecting in order to be a better person for her. And sometimes, I really do wonder, "Who is the teacher here?" My child...she just has so much love for me. And on days when I'm not feeling like she's doing what I'd like her to be doing. She responds with a big hug. She always has a hug for me and that just feels so nice. I really feel blessed.

I wonder if she picked her father too because he is really good for me too. I see that in so many great couples. They just work!

Eve & Adam Build a House

I feel so blessed for my child's teacher and for Waldorf Education. I am a BIG, BIG advocate of Waldorf Education because it just resonates with me. Every time I am in the classroom or just see how the children interact with one another, my heart is warmed because this is a living, breathing, thoughtful education that peels back the layers of our children's divine gift to the world. As opposed to regular education that just tries to fill a vessel called the brain. Our children come into this world with their own unique gifts. Just as each one of us has a gift within us. We just have to slow down, quiet the outside world and get to know our inner selves.

Recipes...

I've been making a bunch of yummy stuff lately so I thought I'd share.

These almond cookies are delicious. I usually use the pulp that comes out of making almond milk. So, usually that comes to about a 1.5 cups of almond pulp and then I add 1 cup of whole wheat flour. I also used gluten free flour once and it turned out yummy! No dry and crumbly like the usual gluten free.
