Waiting for Baby- Baby Shower

When waiting for a new addition to the family to arrive there are a lot of “to-do” items. Things to research, spaces to re-arrange, and life plans to organize (work, leave, school, helping siblings adjust, etc.). It is a lot. Sometimes it feels overwhelming. Fortunately there is a lovely tradition of a baby shower. I have thrown several over the years for various friends and church members which has always been a lot of fun. However being the recipient of a baby shower is absolutely amazing.

Body Love. All good things...

Technically I have one more day of the challenge, but tomorrow is Halloween, so I am going to be enjoying my family time rather than processing my thoughts and feelings surrounding this little experiment.

Body Love. Driving.

I spend just shy of four hours a day, Monday through Friday, in my car taxi-ing my children to and from school (3 hours minimum right there), violin, swimming, soccer (although today is the last day of soccer until spring) and church. I try to use that immense amount of time wisely. I talk with my children, listen to audio books, or my new favorite; podcasts. This past month I have found a few podcasts that support my body love project. Some I have just started listening to this week so I can’t give a fair review of anything but I figure I will list them at least for my own future reference.
