Bigger Picture Moments, Alita’s Growing

Simple BPM

She paws at the crate in the fan caressed room. I wake to hear soft pleading whimpers and I know that I need to rise out of bed; even though my body begs to linger under warm plaid covers. Somehow I manage the impossible feat of lifting my legs up and over the queen sized bed. Slowly I shuffle to her crate, lift the latches, and let her lick happily at my fingertips. She pushes around my ankles, feet, toes, and moves quickly to the sliding glass door. My eyes are still sealed with sleep as goose-flesh rise up over my skin. And I think to myself about the changing of seasons.

Bigger Picture Moments, Sarah’s Swelling

Simple BPM

It’s that time of pregnancy where we can no longer sit around idly and wait for the baby to make himself known.  While I would like to sit idly, it makes me feel itchy and nervous that we can’t possibly finish the things that need to be accomplished before his birth and what if we don’t find a vehicle that fits three car seats and he has to ride separately?!?! 
There are lists to be checked off.  Preparations to be made.  Transitions to be settled into.
Transition number one, is the combining of the girls’ bedrooms.  And oh my goodness, putting two rooms of stuff into one room is mad-making.  We’ve pared and sorted and tossed and stored a giant load of kidstuff, all in the hopes that Mia and Lauren will adore being roommates for the foreseeable future. 
Not like they really have a choice — it’s this or…this.

Bikes were brought out.
Dishes were forgotten.
To do lists ignored.
Need to do’s, have to do’s, want to do’s were pushed aside.
