Oh yes I'm going there

My baby is in grade 2!

yes I will go there for a moment..18 months old..

This morning..


He was beyond excited to see his buddies and his "young" teacher. Coming from last years 70 year old grade 1 teacher, anyone under 50 would be young to's hoping she's ready for chatty Cole!

More exciting then grade 2 was the loss of another tooth last night. Not sure what happened but the tooth fairy "forgot" to extra loonie will likely appear tonight..and maybe some hockey cards...or I may forget YET again.

7am I awoke to Cole next to my face saying...

"mom...I got nothing!"

Blame it on the twins. I always do.

Oh, and did I mention Cole went to school missing a few school supplies.
yeah that's right, I forgot to buy notebooks, all 8 of them.

I was standing in line at Zellers last week....with ALL the kids and the line was not moving...
I vaguely remember saying I would have to come back.....

The twins were fussing..

See, blame it on the twins.

Hope your kids are enjoying their first taste of true educational exhaustion...and routine, and structure, and someone other than mom nattering at them.

Thank you teachers!!!

Karma or Krazy?

Do you believe in Karma?

I found myself explaining this word to Cole last week. You see, he was being less than an ideal "big brother" during a game of mini hockey.

Sure enough...hours later, one of the twins(can you guess which one?)

.. took a bite out of Cole's arm when Cole decided to muscle in at the Thomas the Train table.

In between the tears was the question....

"Why would he do that to me mom!!?"

Sure, I could have defaulted to:

1. He is 20 months old. Enough said
2. He has no words to explain himself so he chooses to "show" his frustration via some teeth marks
3. He may have a bit of a reactive temper...I'm working on this...patience please.

But I chose to say..

It's Karma Cole.

Can of worms opened.

Self reflection MY Karma good?

I do believe in Karma.
I do believe that how you treat others will affect how you are treated.
I do believe that the energy you exert into the Universe somehow comes back to the same way or worse.

That being said, we are human. Emotions and reactions are real and necessary. The universe cannot evolve without some Bad Karma out there. 

I'm at a standstill here.
I want to learn more, to feel more, to do better.

Not just for Karma's sake...
For humans sake.

What's your Karma like these days?
