wovenspirit Conversations with this sweet heart while out and about tonight (who has never much enjoyed eating the small amount of chicken and lamb meat I've given him, and in the last few months, has refused to eat even the occasional piece of organic chicken)...
'What's that funny smell, Mummy?'
'Someone is cooking cow meat, Ru.'
'Cow meat?! Why!!'
'They're going to eat it for their dinner.'
Long pause...
'Why do they want to eat cows for? The people? Do they not mind the smell?'
'What do you think of the smell, Ru?'
'Well I don't like it. It doesn't smell good.'
'Well, some people like it, and they like the taste of cows meat, that's why they eat it.'
Long pause...
'How do they get it to eat? How do they get it off the cow? Does the cow mind?'
'Well, yes, I think the cow probably does mind... people usually buy the cow meat from a supermarket, but the cow is killed so people can eat it.'
Long silence...
'I don't think that's good, Mummy. I don't think it's good to kill cows. I don't think it's good to eat them.'
Another pause...
'Ru just only wants to eat fish meat, not any other kinds of meat... ok, Mummy?'
'That's perfectly ok, sweetheart.'

  •   smallforestshop The way his mind works! such purity x 2d
  •   littleearthstories Beautiful boy. 2d
  •   sailingintheclouds He's so beautiful. A few nights ago Arlo didn't want to eat his chicken (we only rarely buy an organic chicken) and when I asked why he said 'chickens feathers are for clucking and walking around at the farm.' As a vegetarian almost my whole life this really got me! Neither of us are our chicken then. They're amazing aren't they? X 2d
  •   bittofmonnie Greatest lil human 2d
  •   littlepapaya I had the same explicit chat about how tonight's meat came about being on our plate. I've always been explicit about what animal it is, it being killed etc. Lottie pauses and is very thoughtful about it but still eats the meat. Living with a piscetarian (?) means we don't eat that much meat anyway but I still want the kids to know and appreciate! 2d
  •   allthetinymoments Aw, I love him! 2d
  •   beckysusanne The picture is adorable but the conversation is beautiful. 1d

  •   foodnfamily_ Almost all my clients reported having a cry after they'd had a big chop. Even the ones who loved short hair from the start. I used to warn people that it would happen before I even lifted the scissors. I been considering a chop. I think I'm mostly keeping it for my husband's benefit. 4d
  •   myvintagesupplies That's so gorgeous... and familiar. ;) 4d
  •   fayethedreamer Didn't you say you were in Miami? Or was that someone else? I am in north beach for the week. Right now in coconut grove . Sorry if I confused you with someone else! 3d
  •   wovenspirit We're a very long way from Miami @fayethedreamer unless you mean Miami on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia? We're about 7 hours drive from there 3d
  •   fayethedreamer Oops lol 3d
  •   fayethedreamer Yea not that beach sorry lol I knew that after I commented. I remembered something about Australia . It sounds awesome though. My friend is there too! It's beautiful im mega jealous! 3d

  •   wovenspirit He loves that necklace so much @threeprincesonequeen ! He really needs something to hold and grip to fall asleep, but it has to be something soft and textural - plastic or hard beads he doesn't like... he really loves fabric/cord etc... it's so darling 3d

wovenspirit We've been invaded... by thousands and thousands of #jewelbugs aka #stinkbugs ... they've been living in the tops of all our tall trees for the last week, but we woke this morning to find them covering our deck and every external window, door and wall... it's like a plague of #mutantladybug 's 4d
  •   wovenspirit We get those too @erinashleighh ! These ones are a kind of #harlequinbug , so from the stink bug family - we normally get a few of them, but I've never ever seen this many! They drink sap from a particular kind of tree, apparently! 4d
  •   littlepapaya Woah! So cool! 4d
  •   wearethenepias Oh and here I was thinking they were a tropical fruit of some kind . Never seen these bugs before. I hope they don't cause too much of a nuisance for you. 4d
  •   katekaire Wow awesome photo! My boys would love to see that, we are avid little entomologists at the moment 4d

wovenspirit Does it still count as lunch if you're eating it at 3pm? #buddhabowl of vegan goodness ~ tempeh, coconut milk mashed potato, pumpkin/spinach/pea/coriander smash, cucumber, toasted cashews, all topped with @peaceloveandvegetables #seavegetables #superkraut and curry #cashewcheese (highly addictive!!) ~ eaten while my non-napping children wail at me in various tones of anguish and temper... motherhood is super relaxing 5d
  •   tribaldreaming Lol Super relaxing! your lunch looks amazing and I am sure it wasn't eaten in one swift mouthful 5d
  •   myvintagesupplies Oh, I need this meal. Experiencing same, non napping, kind of gone a little loopy crazy, child! *sigh* 5d
  •   twigsandtwine Delicious! Happy "peaceful" eating:) 5d
  •   houseofhumble There must be something in the air, Jude has refused to sleep all day today! 5d
  •   mommykati Oh wow! How can you put such great food together? I've also two kids and well we've only noodles and butter for Diner....most of the days  I'd love to spend more time for making such nice and healthy meals!! LOVE YOUR FOOD!!!   5d
  •   threeprincesonequeen I am so in awe you still prepare this amazingness for yourself x 3d
  •   wovenspirit I just keep it really simple @mommykati and try not to be too fancy! If I have simple fresh ingredients in the fridge I find it much easier - tempeh is so good (like haloumi or tofu etc) because it cooks really fast in a pan - I roast and bake a lot of veggies because the oven does the work for me - I just chop and put them in - the other things, like cashew cheese and sauerkraut are great because they come from a jar in the fridge and I just plonk it on top of everything - I never cook anything complicated, honestly - it's just about keeping it simple!!! 3d
  •   wovenspirit I promise @threeprincesonequeen , I have days when I manage to eat only a few bits of toast 3d

wovenspirit This boy of mine... all light and spirit... he attracts people to him everywhere we go... drawn to his smile, his gaze, his golden energy... I had a dream when I was pregnant with him, before I knew he was a him, of a round cheeked baby with a wide smile, surrounded by golden light... in my dream I was told that the baby would attract people to them all their life... sharing their golden light, bringing happiness and joy to people... bringing people together... creating harmony with their very presence... and I can see it already, even though he's so very young... when the pedal to the metal of our hard days eases up, and I can stand back and get a little perspective, even if it's at midnight, I like to remember that my boys are more than just this lifetime here on earth... that the universe is broader than we can ever comprehend, and that I'm just a custodian lucky enough to share a snippet of time with these glowing souls... 6d
  •   kirstenrickert I feel it. A beautiful dream. 6d

wovenspirit Sometimes letting go can be so hard, especially when the thing you're letting go of has had your heart for such a long time... especially when it has brought you so much... love, connection, friendship, growth, beauty... It's hard learning to keep the moments and let go of the bigger picture... to let a story carry on without you, to watch that story change, find new authors, follow a different path, find a different perspective... In the end, there's really only one good way of letting go, and that's with grace... 6d
