I love that my kids are insanely proud of growing up. This oldest boy of mine is taking on his role as independent teenager passionately and with joy. It's amazing to watch the once 24/7 colicky-screaming chubby scared baby boy have so much self confidence. AMAZING.

I am LOVING the strength and determination of my friends in Calgary. You blow my mind and fill my heart. The devastation is painful to watch. My entire mommy-community lives there. A close knit group of my friends live in the flooded core of the devastation. We used to sit in the pesticide-free park and breastfeed our babies together in the sunshine. I'm watching now on facebook as they call for tools, food, clean up crews, and wine. What a mess. What a lot of work. What leadership. What resourceful women they are. They are doing it. Laughing, crying, organizing, and kicking ass getting things done. WOW. You women are my heroes.

All the best to everyone affected by the flooding in Alberta, and now in Saskatchewan & Manitoba too. Our hearts go out to you all.
