I have an appointment to meet with...

the midwife I want to apprentice with. I am overjoyed and terrified at the same time. Is it possible? Will I actually be able to be a midwife? I think what scares me the most is being away from my sons. Can I justify my desires?

Progress leads to boredom

Is that true? Today I introduced my son to the concept of boredom. Is it o.k. for a child to be bored? I remember many days during summer, laying around doing nothing. We would swim, dance, bake and create anything to avoid boredom. As dawn approached us Frances, Joaquin and I took are regular walk to The Coffee Bean. Later, we went to the park and played for 2 hours. When we came home Joaquin was asleep, and I took it upon myself to start my midwifery studies. Needless to say Frances was bored. We talked about what it is to be bored and how being bored is sometimes o.k. In fact it's an opportunity to just and think...or play trash truck.

Pre-pak and Narm day

OK I finally requested by pre-pak from AAMI. ARGH! I completed the 15 necessary items to receive my pre-pak and now I am on my way. It should take 4-6 weeks to receive the material. I also cleared up my confusion about attending a NON-MEAC school in California. I will have to go the the PEP process through NARM and then take the California Challenge. In the long run I think it will save me about $2000.00 dollars. (I hope.) I need to set up an appointment with the midwife I wish to apprentice under. I hope and pray it works out.

On the other hand I had a difficult adventure as a Mama today. Frances released all the water of out 2 1/2 gallon water container all over the floor. He sure had a lot of cleaning up to do.
