Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

What Brings You Joy?

Their salty, sweaty, sea hay smell when they come back from the playground; the way they turn on a dime between hating each other and being best friends; the hugs, the kisses, the "I love you's" and nose-rubs before bedtime. Their irrepressible excitement at going fishing, getting wet at the splashpad, building inventions with our recycling, and finding something new growing/crawling/climbing in the backyard. All of these things and so many more bring me joy.

Therefore, it's no coincidence to me that "Boy" rhymes with "Joy". ;)
