It is most decidedly not 8:00 am this Tuesday morning.
This is also not the planned Tuesday Talk May Host Feature.
My calendar states I should be at a friend's house, but I am not.
It also says I should have come home late last night from a soccer game to which I never went.
Normally I get at least 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep, I did not.
I also usually can put the baby down during his morning nap, but instead I'm typing this one handed.

I share this not to complain or gain pity. I share it because the past 24 hours have shown me something. In the past these disruptions to my plan would have phased me a bit. I wouldn't show it, but they would have added onto each other and left me feeling a bit worn out internally. Two months as a mother has taught me to take things more in stride, so much so that I didn't realize I was doing it until I took a step back. I wasn't just surviving through things going as planned; I was thriving.

It is a good place to be this thriving.
My morning rituals get to last through mid morning.
My favorite pjs are now a momiform.
My chest is heavy; weighted with my son's sweet head.
My house is quiet except for the sound of  my child's stuffy breathes broken by squeaks of laughter in his sleep.

This wasn't planned, but it is infinitely better.


 My friend, Keri, just launched her ebook on thriving as a mom yesterday.
I am so excited for her and for everyone who will benefit from her sharing her wisdom and kind heart. If you feel like you are living in survival mode or just need a reminder of the goodness in everyday living, I highly recommend it.
