the spirit of things on Sunday night. Have a listen to the audio if you have time.
I have been doing Yoga and meditation on and off since age 15 years. I often wished I had become a teacher of Yoga and not been so academic. Now I do at times want some time to myelf to sit and meditate. I would just have to try and get up earlier than my son. But I find myself wallowing around trying to yank my eyes open into the blur.
I guess mothering is already a challenge in being ever present in this moment and being mindful

I keep thinking of well its going to be good, because we will be so organized in our new place. Have this image in my head of how now want things to be.
I have decided to take on the challenge of dottie angel and still have preloved or handmade stuff for our new abode. Will be a challenge as so many nice shops in Bowral/Southern Highlands. But also lots of great op shops and antique/vintage stores as well.

This is especially evident at mealtimes. Wanting to be so independent and self feed, but not really being able to co ordinate hand to back of throat, ooh the frustration and mess.
New nickname, Davross, sitting up on dalick like high chair, ordering us around with some unintelligiable grunts and groans.
Has anyone used baby sign??? Realise only a phase but at times it has us overwhelmed.

Now with preparation for our move we have been busy decluttering. We have been given preloved clothing for our son until about age 5! Our new place is much smaller with less storage. So I was in a quandary. Do I pass on all his baby clothes? All the 0000 and 000,that no longer fit him, but are so cute.
The real chance of being able to have another baby at age 45 is pretty remote. I have had patients fall naturally pregnant at 46, and the baby has been vigourous and healthy. I wonder what it is going to be like for Che to be an only child.
So last night impulsively I put 3 bags of baby's clothes as an offer on freecycle. They were picked up this morning.
A little bit grieiving.

I will miss my bath. Our new place we are moving to has 2 bathrooms to use but alas no bathtub! Most nights I have a bath with my little one. He gets very excitied when he hears the bath water start to run. Many nights when he has been bouncing off the walls, the bath always calms him down to get ready for bed. Off to bed now myself.
I hope the weekend has been restful for everyone.

Pockets of our garden we are really proud about. The garden is now just over 2 years old and now some plants are really showing their true colours. Dreaming of starting from scratch once again somewhere new.
One question to anyone out there. Leaky nappies. I feel I have tried everything. From purpose made cloth night nappies with good wool or PUL cover, to many differnet types of disposables. Still every night leak all through singlet, PJs wrap onto sheets. Soaking his or our bed. Sometimes twice per night. Grrrrrr!

I was anxious for a garden and privacy at the start and with not having the ability to immediately renovate we set upon the garden with such vigour. In fact I think now we did over plant and crowd the trees a bit. We have learnt so much.
The garden beds were built up on permaculture principals and constructed on a wavy organic style.
