Hello Blog Party! I’m The Domestic Anarchist and I’ve been blogging for a little over a year now. I’m a stay-at-home mom and I have two children, The Wizard, who’ll be seven in June, and The Squid who just turned 7 months old. We enjoy free thought, self-expression, family fun, healthy eating, good music, video games, art and crafts! I like to think of parenting of a socio-political experiment, where we learn more every day about culture, humanity, our children and ourselves.
Today has been an amazing day, regardless of The Squid working on cutting her lateral incisors (apparently she’s trying to turn into a humbolt squid!). The Wizard has spent most of the day outside with The Princess next door. I helped them plant a secret garden, and we had an awesomely easy lunch of chips and guacamole, while we listened to Kimya Dawson. All day I’ve been singing “A is for Apple, B is for Butt, C is for Cat-butt…” and while The Squid has napped and played, I’ve started knitting her a toy squid, and almost finished a scarf for The Wizards godmother, and somehow even fit in enough time to make a big pot of shitake mushroom soup for my mother, who is fighting breast cancer. It’s amazing how some days are a such a struggle to get through, and others everything just falls right into place. …Of course, it does come at a sacrifice. I haven’t finished the dishes, and there’s a mountain of laundry on the couch. And life goes on! I think these easy days are partially luck, and partially me actually taking the time to breathe, relax, and accept that I can’t do everything every day, and as long as my kids are happy and healthy, living with logic and love, that’s what matters. Whether or not I manage to fold their laundry isn’t going to make a difference in their day, so that’s one of the things I can just… let… go.
