This week is coming to a close. We had some fun moments. Laughing, listening. Being. .  We had some tough moments. The kind when you wonder if you are "doing it right" and "whose kid is this". And then it's as if nothing happened the next morning. .  My boys both got operated on with great results. And I am feeling like I kicked some writing butt. .  Little girl will be 5 in less than two weeks and party planning is about to take up my brain space again. .  On the blog, Self Creation by Avoidance of Who You Think You'll Become. Or is that just me?

A blog post out of the air yesterday on how we as women are doing ourselves harm without help. An excerpt I kinda dig follows. Find a link to my blog, Shalavee.com, in my profile and look for Apples vs. Oranges : My Worth as a Mother and a Woman . "I fear that we’ve accepted and embodied all the perfectionistic self-hate causing crap from Suburban Disney subplots that we are now our own perfect persecutors and jailers. Who needs to keep the woman down when she does such a good job of it herself? Add some extra nasty anger/shame/guilt wars between working and staying home Moms and sit back and watch the fairer females make jackasses of themselves depleting their and their daughter’s power all for the prize of pretty, wealthy, and skinny." .  #feminism #modernwomen #fionamariepeach #taleswithfriends #bloggers #ontheblog #selfleadership #liveauthentic #writerofig #empowerment #perspective #liveonpyrpose #personaldevelopment #emotionalmaturity #mywisdomlessons
It's nice to have this picture to remember my daughter is sweet and we love her. And I don't take a bad picture with make-up on. .  She's at school  but I'm still recuperating from her illness. The first day home, she was cute. She says "Mommy, we'll have girl time together." You better hope you had a solid good time that day. Because after that, the ride gets rough. .  Every day afterwards is a slide into a hell without borders. It's not personal, I'm just being tested to prove I'm in charge of the situation. But when I have need to swat this sweetness on the butt and issue multiple time-outs, the ride's done already got bumpy. .  Today is my last day alone before a three day weekend with her. I'm texting all the parents tonight to see if there's a playdate possibility. . 🌴🌸🌴Have A Great Weekend!🌴🌸🌴 Post of my Havana Event on the blog! Link in my profile to the rest of the pictures. . . UPDATE: As of 1:30… she had a fever at school and I dosed her as I put her in the car and brought her home. So she's got another 3 day weekend to recuperate. The beatings will continue until morale improves (Monty Python). #taleswithfriends #tinytinymoments @Michelle_GD #fionamariepeach #selfie #creativemamas #mywisdomlessons #blogger #writersofig #beherenow #liveauthentic #createeveryday #parenthoodisrelentless #gingershavemorefun #mamadaughtermoment
Fiona had a fever for 2 days. She's better, not a big deal. But Wow her cheeks were so pink that she looked like a little doll baby. Lovely even when she's droopy. .  These bugs are killin' my alone creative time though. And after 24 hours of constant Fiona, she goes from cute to obstinate/ belligerent. Going back to school tomorrow! .  #fionamariepeach #gingers #bathtime #creativemamas #storyofmyday #writersofig #toddlersofinstagram #sickkid #taleswithfriends #daughter #oldermum
Oh didn't I mention, our gal Caitlin @cait_cris paid us a visit this weekend. And all was right with our world. We love you Caitlin! Don't stay away too long. 😸 Swipe right to left to see all the pictures. PS thanks so much for sharing your game with Eamon. He became obsessed and had to go get it himself. Used all of his money including his tooth fairy money! Sigh  #badinfluence #siblings #spoiled #fionamariepeach #eamonspencerpeach  #taleswithfriends #family #storyofmysaturday
"I can not force change on others. I can only invite them to grow with me." From @iamhertribe , bookmarked because, Truth.  I followed a rabbit down a twitter hole yesterday and found Paul Jarvis @pjrvs . His brilliant matter of fact article declared that thought leaders only need to declare their thoughts fact and then, poof, they're thought leaders, especially when backed by branding strategies and sales funnels and catchy memes. WOW. I agreed yet I want to know that it's possible to have integrity online. Because I am here, I have integrity, and I want nothing more than to provide hope to people. I care nothing for money or speaking engagements. They'd be cool enough to have but my primary focus to to be clear and to make a difference to one person. Live your life by your own rules always. .  So I am off for a walk to consider what this means to me and the next steps that I would and will take. Remembering, it always must be for me first, the fulfillment of my joyful intention to connect and create with like-minded people. And holding tight to my grounding word TRUST. .  #martinakstatepark #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #soul_selfie #fionamariepeach #selfdevelopment #selftrust #thoughtleadership #selfleadership #beherenow #calmversation #liveauthentic #unique #greatoutdoors bepresent
I #believe I am capable of doing much more than what I believe I am capable of. .  The past couple days have had my brain flip flopping. Feeling not so good about me then feeling better and yet I know my perception of me and my quality of life lies in what I believe. .  What I believe I'm capable of shades my outlook and leads or halts my progress. If it's an impossibility,.......it is. .  In other words, I can auto-fear-think myself right out of a lovely future in 30 seconds flat.  If I decide I can't because I will never be able to such and such... If I decide it will always be this horrible way... Then I Feel crappy, I believe I'm destined to be stuck. Thoughts are fact because feelings substantiate them.  Except, PS, this is all crap and I am getting better at seeing this as it's happening. But fear tries it just in case. .  As always thank you to the kind and gentle support of @SusannahConway and all that participated in her #gentlejanuary2018 challenge.  And the exact same gratitude to @GabrielleTreanor  for her kindness and good vibes for #savouringjanuary2018 .  #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #emotionalintelligence #selfleadership #wisdomlessons #beherenow #live authentic #creativemamas #bepresent  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment
#soft #violet for #savouringjanuary2018 and GentleJanuary2018 .  Baby Fiona at 7 months with her violet butterfly blanket. I used to put her to bed on top of it and she remembers that. The blanket is in her bed today 4 years later. It isn't "the" blanket but still gives comfort. .  She was sick this weekend. Me too but not as bad. Mothering always takes precedence. Always. Takes all your plans and gently puts them aside until everything settles again. Because you can have your life and our life, just not always at the same time. .  Conversely, just because you have littles, this does not mean you can't do anything for yourself. Ignoring your needs will only show them how when they grow up, they should deny their own needs too. .  #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #taleswithfriends #shalavee #bepresent #liveauthentic #fionamariepeach #i tuitive #writersofig
#little #rest for #savouringjanuary2018 and #gentlejanuary2018 .  The chaotic juggernaut of the holidays gave way to a frenetic flury of fundraising planning. Moments of resistant fear gave over to ones of resolve. And seems all is going well. .  I'm really ready for a little rest. Although I'm rising to my challenges, making Creativity a part of it to keep me interested, I'm longing for the nothingness that this time of winter promises where I can sit and contemplate and write. I have theories to theorize and manifestos to manifest. .  Then again, Springtime often lasts way longer than I think it should. So just Sunday chillin'. How about you? .  #sundayvibes #pjs #fionamariepeach #beherenow #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #cultivatewhatmatters #beherenow #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #selfleadership #emotionalintelligence #shoefie
#love and I smiled for #gentlejanuary2018 and #savouringjanuary2018 .  Eamon is all about his fiddle phone and his games. And where I don't feel as irked is when he includes his sister. He's even made her her own game on Mario Maker and is teaching her how to play. I'd rather have them bonding on something than not. Even though it's video games! I love that they can also spend hours together offline and have just as much fun. Eight years apart and they love each other immensely. .  #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #siblings #taleswithfiends #beherenow #theartofslowliving #oldermum #creativemamas #writersofig
#surrender and #smile  for #savouringjanuary2018 and #gentlejanuary2018 .  It's Sunday, the sun came out, so I surrendered to my girl's need to play on a playground. And since they don't let her climb the rockwall during school hours, I let her climb on the forbidden equipment. She was pretty pleased with herself and her smile reflects that. .  #storyofmyday #sundaystory #cultivatewhatmatters #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #playground #liveunscripted #embracingslowerlife #beherenow #slowliving #liveauthentic #tinymoments #nothingsordinary #toddlersofig #blessings #creativemamas
#enjoy and #ifeel for #savouringjanuaty2018 and #gentlejanuary2018 .  It is this time when there's nothing better to do than do and be me that I enjoy. I feel joyful that my holiday duties are done. My children are gone to school and I can relish the solitude sitting in my chair introverting to my heart's content. .  I do not feel anxious or overwhelmed, just present and satisfied. I've still time to edit and write before mine liebchens return home. Because when I am with them, I want them to feel important as I do right now. .  My blog post came easily in this mode. Titled, People They Come and They Go on Shalavee.com . We each need to respect the change each of us needs to make which sometimes takes people away from us. .  #beherenow #fionamariepeach #ontheblog #livethelittlethings #creativemama #momlife #becreative #theartofslowliving #soul_selfie #writersofig #taleswithfriends #liveauthentically #ubercreative #blogger
#old and #trees for #gentlejanuary2018 and #savouringjanuary2018 . "A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in." And old women have babies graduating college when they'll be 70. .  Taking a walk at dusk to get exercise and get out of the house. I love seeing the old sycamores backlit by sunsets. .  #fionamariepeach #dusk #outandabout #downtowndentonmd #taleswithfriends #winter #gingershavemorefun #sycamore #oldtree #creativemamas #becreative #theartofslowliving #seeksimplicity #momlife #postthepeople
#thoughts and I Miss for #gentlejanuary2018 and #savouringjanuary2018 .  Trick is, I'm not missing anything. Everything I need is here under my roof. It always has been. Christmas used to be bittersweet when I was a child. I remember the heaviness of the let down afterwards. Perhaps because the promise of unconditional family love was never going to be in my stocking. Or a sense of belonging to the people I was with. .  But today, I have that in spades. Thoughts of what I CAN do would never be possible without those I belong to. My husband, my children, my friends, and my faraway family here on IG. I am delighted to feel that there's a corner I turned, this year is my runway. I'm looking forward to it. Blog posts are churning and are published every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on Shalavee.com. Because blogging enables me to belong to myself and the world simultaneously. .  #iamwriting #writersofig #taleswithfriends #family #fatherhood #fionamariepeach #beherenow #slowliving #liveauthentic #tinymoments #nothingsordinary #toddlersofig #blessings #creativemamas #blogger #soul_selfie
I won't and listen for #SavouringJanuary2018 and #gentlejanuary2018  If you listen to her, she knows she can do anything. She can play instruments and dance. She will be a facepainter. And sell lemonade. .  I used to be a Daredevil . For a short time, I sang in a band in college but my fears and I have fought an epic battle. I won't be pragmatic with her. I refuse to tell her she can't. She can times 10. .  Her Daddy showed her how to pluck an E, an F, and G on that guitar she got for Christmas. She was proudly showing me. She says she has a way to go. (Bonnie Raitt started at 8). We could all use a little more listening to ourselves and a little less stopping before we start. .  #fionamariepeach #creativelife #creativemamas #guitar #bonnieraittlookout #taleswithfriends #empowerment #parenting #storyofmylife #almost5 #gingershavemorefun #selfdiscovery #slowliving #beherenow
#water and #now for #savouringjanuary2018 and #gentlejanuary2018 . (Swipe from right to left to view all 5 pics) Eastern seabord of US got some snow this week. I had two days off of full time mother and housewife gog of Christmas before schools closed again. And simultaneously, I killed my dishwasher. The third appliance to die for the  holiday. Snow removal and appliance purchasing (third dishwasher we've owned in under five years) are what happened today. .  Tonight, a special dinner next door hosted annually by our neighbors. And I get to escape tomorrow for our mindful meet-up group luncheon and our discussion topic of self-improvement. Prosecco and pecan bars are my offering. And some much needed Mommy time. .  In case you missed it, my blog post on Shalavee.com is about my word of the year : Trust. I had no intention of doing a word. This one assaulted me. Link in my profile. .  Stay warm and stay cool in your respective climates! .  #taleswithfriends #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #family #snowdays #dishwasherdeath #creativemamas #liveauthentic #slowliving #beherenow #motherhood #snowbound #easternshoreofmaryland #downtowndentonmd
Thank you for..... #decemberreflections2017 .  Thank you my dear friends for seeing me as you do. I am flattered with every comment and compliment. Validated, affirmed, and seen.  It was through these affirmations that I found myself again. Who'da thunk I could be grateful for a social medium but I am. .  And thank your participation in my "Soul Selfie" and "Our Creative Selves" challenges this year. Again, I felt so supported and thrilled to connect and bloom with you. To another year of witnessing one another! .  #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #friendship #seekthesimplicity #thatsdarling #theslowdowncollective #becomingwild #iamhertribe #livethoughtfully #thenativecreative #quietchaotics #calmversation #distractionsandinspirations #dreamersanddoers  #creativemamas

#evening for #decemberreflections2017 .  Merry Christmas to all! It was a good night! Christmas Eve dinner of tenderloin and twice baked potatoes, boozy mushrooms and green beans. Marvelous food and the Grandmothers for company. .  The present opening melee is winding down. Christmas brunch is coming next! .  #christmaseve #family #eamonspencerpeach  #fionamariepeach #dinner #taleswithfriends
#stillness for #decemberreflections2017  A Merry Christmas Eve from my house to yours! Music and Merry has been had. Roast and pecan pie. Muppet's Christmas Carol. Santa was last tracked to Dublin.  Children are content and loved and certain that their tomorrow will be lovely. And I had an easier Christmas than I have ever had. Love to you all! #fionamariepeach  #eamonspencerpeach  #piano #siblings #taleswithfriends  #creativemamas  #merrychristmas
