A new nanny will come love on our children soon while my partner and I have a long-overdue date. Dinner and a comedy movie are on tap for this hormonal mama. ("Please, just no drama!") Our Fairy God Mums are offering their time to be with our wee ones. My partner is cleaning out the garage and shed while also tackling aggressive wasps in our swing set. We have successfully completed a week of intensive day camps where I was an adult helper, making new friends along the way. Our communities and routines are established enough to bring comfort and delighted anticipation. My children are now old enough to participate in their activities at the same time, such a gift. And we are eating lots of vegetables!
