Ta-daaa – 180 Days of Magic

Sleights of moment, waving the family wand

Stirrings

Posted by PlayGroundology on May 4, 2008

It’s early morning and the sun is shining sweet. The house is quiet – no one stirring. Babies will be on the loose soon. Lots of domestic bliss to get through today before we take off to LAX with final destination San Diego on Monday.

My arm is sore from repeated pinchings. It’s still hard to believe that this is happening. “This” is parental leave – six months out of the workforce to be en famille. Thanks employer, thanks parliamentarians for the legislation. This is the single hugest gift I will receive in my professional life. It’s the cure par excellence for putting the “life” into work-life balance….

Les Canadiens lost last night. That disappointment was tempered by speaking with old friends and older children – one whose adventure is well underway and the other who is just on the precipice of leaping.

Today is ours to caress, weave, shape and savour – we rise on the east coast and we’ll set snugly on the west.
