Mother's Day

Yesterday, I chose to give my Mr. Bloom the afternoon off to take care of home projects and go for a mountain bike ride while Little Mr. B. & I went to see the movie Babies.

I cannot begin to say how much I loved this movie. The contrasts were astounding, especially in the area of hygiene. It gave me pause (and made me feel ridiculous) to think about how much I worry about such things. Mostly, it was just wonderful to spend 90 minutes watching babies do the things they do with my own little boy pressed to my side, laughing at the funny parts and sighing at the sweetness...

Whether you spent yesterday honoring your mother or reveling in motherhood, I hope your day, too, was filled with joy.


  1. What a beautiful site, voice, family. You visited my site from WOW and I just had to check out yours. I love it! It's interesting to find someone in such a different place in life than the one I'm in yet I relate and love her words. I look forward to more and have added you to my reader.

  2. Nice to hear from you Lisa -- it's funny because, although we are in such different places in our lives, I am your senior by 2 years. Yup... life with baby is going to be... exciting? exhausting? (yikes!)

    Thanks for stopping by. Hope to hear from you again soon!
