The A Team 03.11.12

+ now drinks cow's milk and likes it
+ loves getting into whatever her sister is doing
+ gobbles up her Papa's BBQ
+ will sometimes reply when you talk with her
+ pets the cats and dog very gently

+ wants to go potty directly after she has soiled her diaper
+ will occasionally thank me for doing things, like making her chocolate milk or washing her clothes, unprompted, in full sentences
+ tells me to not be cross
+ spontaneously told me she loved me today


This writer nails it -

The other morning, I had the thought, "You know what my problem is? I think I have problems but I don't actually have problems."

And two of my bloggers came out with posts that resonated:

Daily Groove:

...remember there are two components to every problem:

    1. The actual condition
    2. Your *belief* that it IS a problem

Superhero Journal says:

...most importantly:
  • There is nothing wrong with me.
  • I didn’t do anything wrong.
  • I am totally lovable.

Ah, Universe. You work in mysterious ways.
