But this one. This might just take the cake. My sister Molly emailed it to me this morning and told me to make time to read it TODAY. And when the kids were down for naps, that's just what I did. I believe a good birth story will change you. I hope this one does. I know it did me.
Please read it when you have the chance.
p.s. A friend told me I should warn you that the story is very emotional, so be prepared....
Enter Terrain. It's an online shop for all things outdoor (and more!) brought to you by the people of Anthropologie. So you know it's going to be good. Check it out.

Check out this awesome gift basket she made with her son for one of his friends. There isn't a gift more heartfelt than that, no?
A handknitted gnome, a felted egg with a playsilk inside, two handmade wrist cuffs (one leather, one knitted). I'm in love.
A good friend of mine just started homeschooling her daughter, and ever since then I've been saying to myself "Could I?" "Should I?" "Nah." Even B agreed I'm probably not cut out for it. But the kids who get homeschooled (at least ones like the kids from Childhood Magic...with super dedicated and thoughtful parents) get the best of everything, I think.
What do you think? Would you homeschool your child?
C-Man continues to be quite the singer around our house and I realized I haven't been documenting it enough. Hopefully he won't be "too cool" for it someday, but I realize that's a possibility. Especially with songs like this. This here is the new song they sing at school before they have snack and lunch. Two words: I DIE.
