39/52 – Her & Him (Catch-up)

A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2016.


Little Miss :  Although you turned 6 a few weeks ago, we celebrated your birthday with your little friends from school this past week-end.  It was our first experience having a bunch of your friends over without any adults but m and your dad. I won’t lie, we were a bit nervous. Our home is not a typical home and where most have party games and Disney themes, we have mud kitchens and trampolines, so we didn’t know how your friends would react. Oh how happily surprised we were. What a great group of friends you have my love. You have surrounded yourself with creative, respectful, energetic and happy individuals and that just makes me smile from ear to ear. When I asked you why you had connected with them, you said things like “because she loves to invent stories and we laugh all the time”, “he is super active and likes to run around with me and never gets tired” and “because she always listens when I talk”… Keep finding these people who speak to your heart and soul my love. They will be your greatest treasures as you navigate these uncertain waters. And they are welcomed here any time you would like! ❤

Little Man :  Do you realize I bought that colander 18 months ago? Again and again I tried, getting you to “pleeease” put one pipe cleaner into a whole. As much as I like to think I’m over all these “milestone moments”, there are still parts of me that crave that concrete measuring stick. I walked into the room this week and found you going at it with one of the most intense “focus faces” I’ve ever seen on you. When the pipe cleaners would bend, you would straighten them out and start again. You did not stop until they were all in and then came over to show your dad and me what you had done. “Chill mom! I’m doing just fine!” is what your heart constantly tells me. You are more than fine my sweetheart, you are golden! ❤

About Yanic A.

Hello to all of you and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yanic. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother of 2 beautifully complex and unique children and a lover of all things inspiring. Having started a personal journey of self discovery when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, I've since embraced a daily life of simpler pleasures and gratitude. As we get to know each other, you will know me as a quilter, a gardener, a Tao cultivator, a vegetarian foodie, a true believer in a healthy family life as being the secret to my happiness and hopefully as time goes on, a friend... I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.
