Stuff that help you love the role.
Stuff that makes the hard job of raising little people a little more "doable".
My friend Sarah has published a great series - the practices of mothering.
I highly recommend you check it out!
And... she is inviting others to share their own practices in a blog carnival, February 6th.
People, I love the domestic arts. I do.
It is kind of my "thing".
I love making home special.
When I was single & young & crazy, I loved a good party.
I still do. Mostly they look a little different, though.
(Not because they used to be crazy drunken, irresponsible-type parties; they weren't.)
Just because having a home loving husband & 4 little people to care for,
big parties aren't really on the agenda.
In the not-so-quiet, home-staying life we live, I like to find things to celebrate
and ways to make the everyday stuff a bit more special.

I like fresh flowers on the table & I like candlelight.
I believe in baking the fancy cake just because
& not saving the good "company" meal for company.
Not that I do that stuff all the time.
And even when I do, it doesn't mean "I have it all together" or some such nonsense.
It is just my thing I love & a way I like to make our family's home.
Sometimes we choose the special, over the toilet scrubbing & dish washing.
What to do? What to celebrate?
We can have fun with any meal, since the kids eat on these plates -
I am thinking of serving these for April Fool's Day -
I remember doing this kind of toast as a kid. Special & fun & cheap & simple
okay. most of my ideas are food related, I suppose.
How do you like to make these special in the every day?
Do you have a practice of mothering you would like to tell others about?
Join the link up on February 6th with Sarah Bessey.
update you guys. I got these paper straws & they are super fun.
