Thing one: Owen is busy growing and looking cool, going to school, pushing against mom and learning how to be the man he will become, in his own Owen-like way. He is such a deep swimming boy. He often startles me with his insight and clarity.
Thing two: Bodhi is midway through his last year at Children's Garden Montessori School, where I teach. I have grown accustomed to having him with me every day. I have watched him grow and learn and develop in a way that many working mamas simply can't do. I am grateful for this gift daily and the gift of being mother to two amazing and breathtaking boys.
