Guide us Jah man, guide us Jah man, oh yeah.

Have mercy on a good man, and help him we pray Jah man.

Have mercy on a good girl, and help her we pray Jah man.

thankful for- being able to bring hawke to work with me and that he is napping right now, giving me some quiet time to get some work done

wearing- white vneck tee, seersucker skirt (that i think is just a tad too short), red beaded necklace, and chacos

What will be your story now
Today it’s something far inside
Hurts your body close your eyes
And I’ll bring you back to here

You are my own sinking ship
‘Cause everyday the current shifts
And I picked apart your wasted lies
to get you back to here

Oh it’s the last time we’ll fall in love
Oh it’s the last try to break apart
You are not to blame

Why can’t I just be all right?
Why cant I invade your mind?
Somedays we’re just so far off
But I want you back right here

Oh it’s the last time we’ll fall in love
Yeah, it’s the last try to break apart
Sayin you are not to blame

Can’t remember your last smile
I think I made it happen though
Then I took you off to work once more
But I just want you, I just want you,
I just want you here

Oh it’s the last time we’ll fall in love
Yeah, it’s the last try to break apart
Sayin you are not to blame

-Good Old War, My Own Sinking Ship

she’s only happy in the sun

know you may not want to see me
On your way down from the clouds
Would you hear me if I told you
That my heart is with you now

She’s only happy in the sun
She’s only happy in the sun

Did you find what you were after?
The pain and the laughter brought you to your knees
But if the sun sets you free, sets you free
You’ll be free indeed, Indeed

She’s only happy in the sun
She’s only happy in the sun

Every time I hear you laughing, I hear you laughing
It makes me cry
Like the story of life, of your life
Is hello, goodbye

Shes only happy in the sun
Shes only happy in the sun

Paperweight

Been up all night staring at you
wondering what’s on your mind
i’ve been this way with so many before
but this feels like the first time
you want the sunrise to go back to bed
i want to make you laugh
mess up my bed with me
kick off the covers i’m waiting
every word you say i think
i should write down
don’t want to forget come daylight
happy to lay here
just happy to lbe here
i’m happy to know you
play me a song
your newest one
please leave your taste on my tongue
paperweight on my back
cover me like a blanket
mess up my bed with me
kick off the covers i’m waiting
every word you say i think
i should write down
don’t want to forget come daylight
and no need to worry
that’s wastin time
and no need to wonder
what’s been on my mind
it’s you
it’s you
it’s you
every word you say i think
i should write down
don’t want to forget come daylight
and i give up
i let you win
you win cause i’m not counting
you made it back
to sleep again
wonder what you’re dreaming

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

When nothing is owed or deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected
If you’re loved by someone, you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There’s a darkness upon you that’s flooded in light
And in the fine print they tell you what’s wrong and what’s right
And it flies by day and it flies by night
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

You sell your Sunday Red Rocks Panic tickets to take your kid toy shopping.

And that’s exactly what we did this past Sunday following a delicious brunch at Strings.

Hawke needed some new toys, as his little eyes have gotten so much stronger and his hands have opened from fists to grabbing everything he can. I’ve been telling Tripp from the beginning of this adventure that I want Hawke to have wooden toys, toys that help with development and learning, and toys that are not made in China crap.

I had passed this specific toy store once before while trying to find JoAnn’s for fabric to make the moby wrap, which I carried him in for awhile. It looked so cool from the outside and I made a mental note that when Hawke was more active THIS would be where we would shop for some toys.

Here’s what we bought:

1. “Baby Band” by Hohner. Because it makes sounds and is made in Israel we were all over it.

2. Next came stacking bowls with numbers on the bottom. There are 8 of them and each is a different color and size, made in the Philippines.

3. Then came Dr. Seuss Counting Cards.

4. We also got him 3 little cars that can attach to one another and have soft rubber wheels. We got a green car, a red truck, and a blue jeep. They are made in the USA and dish washer safe!

4. At check out we weeded out some additional items we had been carrying around when we realized they were made in China. When the check out girl realized we were not buying toys from China she mentioned a toy girafee from France… Sophie the Giraffe! I, of course, being an uber trendy mom squeeled when she told me, because I have heard that Sophie is THE teething toy. I asked her what was so special about it and she said she didnt know. When we got home I opened it and couldnt tell what was so special about it either, but Hawke immediately took to Sophie and now they are best friends.

Some other toys Hawke loves (and already owned)

1. Jacques the Peacock by Lamaze

2. Eli the Elephant (purchased at Kohls, but no longer available)

3. BPA Free colored rings with different textures, some with polka dots. They all link together and are great for riding in the car. We attach Eli to the last ring and hang the top ring from the clothes hanger in the backseat. Even if he drop Eli we are still able to quickly find her for him. I also use them in his crib to hang them over his head from one side to the other. These rings are seriously one of my favorite toys of his and I will definitely give them as a present to moms in the future.
