Red Tub

In the house I grew up in, my sister and I had (at times) the attic bedroom to ourselves. In the bathroom was a giant red claw foot bath tub, it was awesome. I wish I had a picture of it. I'll never forget the day we had a contractor in the house (I was about 8 or 9) and the tub starting to crack the floor below, the contractor ran down the stairs in this absolute panic and for some reason we thought it was the funniest thing. One day, I'd like to have a red tub again, maybe something like this:

Now that we are feeding Gus food, this chart is such a great little tool. Found on the Moomah website.

It has often been said, there is no manual to parenting. First time parents (myself, one of them) must fumble, stumble and find our own way to being a confident, self assured parent. There are so many (well meaning) people, willing to give advice. The best person to listen to, I've found is yourself. This article hit a chord with me, mothers are just trying their best everyday without having to worry about a 6 month old 'babbling vowels'. A friend told me the other day, it really all depends on the rhythm of the mother, is she happy, is she calm etc...and I couldn't agree more. Sometimes, I feel like I've got it all sorted out and then the next day, I feel like I'm flailing (just a little flail here or there:) Every parent I've ever known only wants their child to be healthy and happy, it is universal. I try to read as much as I can about being a good mother, but I might start to listen more to the mother inside me instead of the mother on the written page.

The Art of the Bookshelf

Rita Konig (love her) has a great post all about the art of the bookshelf. Books are essential for me and I love having a home full of coffee table books, worn through paperbacks, latest off the shelf hard back books...They mean so much to me, reading is such a big part of my life. I love this short post about bookshelves...check it out.
