Resting and reading and nursing the child. Trying to figure out enoughness.

The Birth Project
Last week I read a sample copy of a new zine called The Birth Project. The subtitle is "thoughts on birth"--sounds right up my alley! I read it right away and it was pretty good. I think I may use my birthday money for a subscription, but I'm weighing my options (I would like memberships in BirthWorks & ICEA too). It is put together by several midwives and doulas (I gather). I really enjoyed a Blessingway article as well as one about how parenthood changes your brain--I most definitely feel *expanded* by motherhood. Like I would be a less developed human without the experience of mothering another. I feel stretched and changed and like I have grown a great deal since I had my babies. I also feel that it has been *painful* growth sometimes, but still healthy, good, desirable, growth as well (just sometimes I feel like, "dang, I don't WANT to learn lessons here!") Hmm. Sounds like Birth is actually a microcosom of this experience!
I like to read and I read a LOT. I learned to read when I was three and never stopped! This blog was created to share comments about the books that share my days. I'm the mother of two small boys. Most of the readings logged here were read as I nursed my younger one to sleep for bedtime or nap time.
This blog is no longer being regularly updated, due to other blogging projects that have more importance to me.
