Good night.

I don't know about you but I'm just like utterly exhausted from this babywearing week stuff. After this I should be good on the subject for at least another year, okay? We'll keep the babywearing in my title and that's about it.

I realized the other day as Ivy asked me to lift her up because she was "too tired of walking" from the car to the house that she really is getting too big for me to carry even on my hip. Babywearing really has drifted far off into the distance.

She's of course never ever too big to hold, however.

I'm too tired of everything. I was hoping as we settled into the school year and fall that I'd catch up from the summer of yes and awesome things, but, I have yet to find any sort of appearance of balance. So I've been walking around half-awake all sideways trying to show up for whatever it is I need to show up for.

I'm so frustrated with myself because I don't see a reprieve anywhere in the near future (which is all my own doing) and you see, I'm already on empty. I'm malnourished spiritually, physically, and artistically. I find myself wanting dumb stuff that's not me, making stupid mistakes, letting people down, and caring about things that have no weight or worth or real estate in my mind or heart at all. And the setbacks just sift right on top of what I was trying to dig out of all this sand that is my life right now.

Not that there is some dark black cloud hanging over my head, because there are so many good and beautiful things happening right now all around me and probably you yet I've swindled away all my energy to love it like it should be loved.

So, I'm going to take a nap right in the middle of the day, and I'm pushing the reset button on a random Friday afternoon halfway through October.

Thank you, babywearing.


babywearing on the merry go round


When I became pregnant with my third, I joked that I would have to “wear this baby” – because where in the world was I going to put him in our small house and how else would I keep him safe from the hands of his two older brothers?
Soon I’d stumble upon a La Leche League meeting full of moms carrying their babies in beautiful fabric and, pretty much, I’d never look back. In honor of International Babywearing Week, I wanted to take a look down my babywearing memory lane, I'm sharing the rest of the story at 4 Kids or More today.

I love the way you wear your baby... at the train station.

Ivy and I are taking a friend -Keli!- to the train station this morning and I wish we'd spent more than just a morning together this weekend while she stayed with Erin. At least we'll have the long ride (and hopefully a quick detour to the beach) before she goes!

I took this photo during a summer playdate with Meagan and Jennifer. We picked them up at the train stop and Jennifer was wearing her sweet girl in the Ergo. (She's also working on her fifth book- you can see her anthology here.) Oh, and she spoke to her daughter only in French. I was insanely inspired.

John Lennon Babywearing LOVE LOVE LOVE

International Babywearing Week kicks off tomorrow and this video of John Lennon wearing his son just chokes me up every time! You can find us singing along to the Beatles more than any other band (although I did recently add in some Beach Boys and Avett Brothers but mostly Beatles...) And I have watched John Lennon's Imagine documentary more times than I can count.




For the record, he is by far my favorite Beatle.

Have a favorite babywearing photo you'd like to send me? I am going to try to post something special this week!
