good girls













i'm so proud of arabella and nola. they have been so good. we had to go to the social security office this week? last week? i dont remember, but anyway arabella sat in her chair the WHOLE time and was super sweet. even when i had to nurse nola she stayed in her seat and listened to me... and lately we've gone to barnes and noble a few times and its something i've been needing for soooo long, i love to just go and read magazines and i haven't been able to do that in so long... now i take them and arabella picks out a bunch of books we sit at a table and she goes through all of them page by page and makes up stories... i read magazines and nola just chills. its amazing. i can go downtown with both of them and have nola in the stroller and ara walking with me and its not crazy AT ALL.... she listens to me! and we walk around, go to barnes and noble go to starbucks just hang out, i can open doors by myself somehow while holding her hand and maneuvering the stroller into the building... wild. i know this wont last long because before i know it nola will not be the age for sitting still, but i'm really enjoying it and im so proud of arabella.

it is SO important to be able to reconcile the "you" who you are inside with the mommy you must become...i too know the importance of books and coffee and the fine art of balancing these needs with babies...i am glad for you sky :) your children will love you more, the more you can stay your amazing self while meeting their needs as well as your own...
