For the record:

Snowing owl
 {from my first visit to the zoo}

 I'm still here.  I am struggling through getting used to a new computer and camera along with the normal winter blahs.
So no new pictures.  I always feel with out images my words aren't enough.  Tricky.
I finished Senor's sweater in time for his birthday.  It fits really well.  Slimmer than he is used to, but I think it looks great.  I can't wait to actually take a picture.  You all are going to be impressed.  Promise.
This weekend I am taking my first ever mama break.  I am going to sunny Miami for a conference for school.  So. Happy!  I need some sunshine and rest.  I need to be re-energized by other people passionate about helping the world to a better place.  And helping yourself along the way.
I am about to start seeing clients.  Are you a busy mom?  If you were going to get support in the kitchen, health and life balance what would you ask for?  What do you already know is important to you?
A couple days ago I said something brilliant.  Only because I was focused on the Bug and trying to help him understand what was happening, not because I am inherently brilliant :)
He was in the bathtub with a little cup which he was trying to balance on his knee.  When it fell off he was a little upset and kept trying to get the cup to balance just so.  I said, "Well, you know, balance is right next to falling off.  So sometimes, that will happen.  It is okay, you just have to try again."  After that, we both had a better day.

And look at the toe nails on that bird! Really posting at 6:53AM? Well, getting some balance is always good as is tipping. Hint on the camera, just put it in the heart position and it does everything, unless you are talking about another new camera.
Enjoy your-ami.

Thanks! The problem I am having is transferring the pictures to the computer. It isn't that I don't know how or that it is hard, just a new step to incorporate that I haven't quite worked in.
