lizelayne She was so upset when she got in the car after school. 10 minutes later here we are. Growing up is hard. And so often you just need rest or a hug or Johnny Cash singing about a ring of fire while you choose love sitting in the car outside your home. 2d
  •   alexisyael <3 2d
  •   dteapriestess Being a grown up is hard too. Great reminder to have some things in place to choose love. 2d
  •   jtaormino21 I say we take some advice from her example and - when we're so upset - take a nap in the car xo 2d
  •   keri_kettle I remember the days when the ride home from school seemed like the most emotionally exhausting transition of the day. It gets better. 2d
  •   leonie_dawson Little darling. Drop off to kindy this morning was hard for Ostara. She was soooo excited but overwhelmed and it was all too much so she started speaking in beeps instead of words. Beep beep neeeeep nupppp neeeep beep beep. 2d
  •   okapimoon A rest. A hug. Johnny Cash singing about a ring of fire. Choosing love. All so good. 2d
  •   tamihackbarth I love watching her (and your) school process unfold here. So similar to ours. 2d
  •   shoshmo Oh, my son just started first grade, and for the first week, he would LOSE IT when I came to pick him up. It was just so hard for him to hold it together in school, that when he could let it all go in front of someone he trusts and loves, he did. This week is better : ) 2d

lizelayne Today's concoction (to counter balance the doughnuts that might have been consumed earlier): 2 big leaves kale (off the stem) + 1c water + 1 purple carrot + 1 banana + small handful frozen blueberries and strawberries. Total yum. Next up is finding some protein add ins that work for me. #greensmoothieadventure 3d
  •   heartsandneedles I love to add pumpkin seeds. Protein & iron! 3d
  •   abbie81 I like Garden of Life, raw vanilla protein powder 3d
  •   lauriejacobsen I also like vanilla protein powder. Good stuff. 3d
  •   lovelymelissa_ Flax & chia seeds, too! 3d
  •   vhiler Any thought on using oat milk rather than water? I believe there is protein in that. 3d
  •   lindseypick Almond butter 3d
  •   maggiekhope Greek yogurt 3d
  •   lizelayne @vhiler i've never had oat milk! adding it to my list. 2d

lizelayne Okay lovelies, I added a banana (per your suggestions) and blueberries and a bit of agave to this morning's concoction and now I have the best carpool line companion ever. Purple!! And so good! #greensmoothieadventure 5d
  •   gemmy1 Peaches, banana, strawberry and some orange juice concentrate is also very very good. Blueberries also add to it. 5d
  •   kyeli Yummmmm! 5d

lizelayne Today's green smoothie: 1 cup spinach, 1 cup(ish) pineapple, 1 cup(ish) frozen strawberries, 1 cup water. So this was not quite right for EJ and me this morning. It went into the fridge. If it was a soup I'd say it needed more flavor. Thinking about adding blueberries to it for an afternoon pick me up. Maybe lemon for a kick. I'm learning... #greensmoothieadventure 5d
  •   mimifatspagetti Add a little cucumber or ginger along with the blueberries. 5d
  •   meagangracie Yogurt or tofu would give it some body, or ice plus banana 5d
  •   hjlbrit Linus 5d
  •   paularaemoritz Liz, a banana can usually fix any smoothie that's a little "off". 5d
  •   rynnavelx A little agave is also a good sweetner. 5d
  •   gemmy1 Yes, a banana. I won't make a smoothie without a banana. 5d

lizelayne "Look at the moon!!! That blue sky is gorgeous!" Yes. (She's so much better today. And she won't remember yesterday, but I will. And I cross another parenting hurdle off the list.) 5d

lizelayne It's been an urgent care kind of a morning. And the little one is fine and loved the adventure of her first x-Ray and wheelchair ride as she charmed every single person we met. She's sporting her new hugging bandaid (aka ace bandage) on her bruised knee, and I'm carrying her everywhere. Oh motherhood you are something. 6d

lizelayne One great thing about having a jewelry studio in your backyard is putting on whatever necklace you most need. This one is around my neck right now. (And it's part of the new collection now in the shop.) #soulmantrasandotherstories 7d

lizelayne There are these moments inside motherhood that push me past all the places I thought I would ever find myself. 1w
  •   simplystork Out of 4 children...one was "strong willed. " This child spent time at Children's Hospital as a wee one. I have no doubt that, that "strong will" was needed to survive...this child is now a beautiful adult child. Hang in there. It is worth every battle and I learned many lessons along the way. 1w
