Day #8

Some days, these moments are harder to find than others.

1. scratching Toby behind his ears, his eyes closed, leaning into my hand.

2. five minutes of quiet with my Honey Nut Cheerios

3. Operating Instructions by Anne Lamott


  1. Isn't Operating Instructions the best? I devoured it deep into my first year of parenting when I was totally overwhelmed, and contradictorily, like I wasn't cut out for parenthood at all and that I couldn't imagine a more important thing that I could be doing. That I could love a creature so entirely, but also resent her so much for keeping me from sleep. Anne Lamott helped me to put it all in perspective and understand that I hadn't lost my mind.

  2. Hmmm. That should be feeling contradictorily...
