Sunday Surf: Phoning it in

I suspended my Sunday Surf posts about a month before my recent birth, but I just had a thought that if I could make them quick and dirty instead of having to hand code, I might be able to throw one up there. So here goes!

Welcome to the Sunday Surf! Here are some of the best links I've read this past week month(s).

Adding waiting to our gentle discipline toolbox for the sweet surprises our kids give us.

On our children's patience with our whole selves.
But isn't it so staggeringly amazing to know that when our true selves are on display - however lovely or ugly that picture might be - we are so unconditionally loved by them?

I've been there, and out the other side. Give this mama some love.

Great alternatives to spanking to calm down and reassess.

Very thoughtful working through of why it's OK to label ourselves.

Really interesting comparison of the spectrum from foremilk to hindmilk. Posted on FB by Fabulous Mama Chronicles.

Beautiful post on accepting the process of trying to conceive and knowing your child is waiting for you.
Yesterday, something absolutely wonderful happened to me. I was at my Yoga For Fertility class, that I've mentioned here before. It's a very small intimate group, and we always start our practice by checking in with each other, and how the week has been, and where we are emotionally that...

What a wonderful, simple, & touching idea for a Mother's Day gift!

Infuriating (the rude guy) & inspiring (the child's delight in art) at the same time!

P.S. Well, it was definitely dirty, but not as quick as I'd hoped.
Maybe next week I'll be able to breeze through?
And now I'd better do that whole "sleep when the baby sleeps" dealio
since I'm the only one of the four of us awake.

The layout doesn't look bad at all! Perhaps it will be faster when its a week instead of month(s).

Some great links here that I enjoyed reading, too. And thanks for the link up to my giveaway!!

Oh yeah, and that photo... so peaceful and beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

I love that photo. Almost makes me want another. :) I was inspired by your Sunday Surfs and put one of my own up finally this week. I need to go find your tutorial on how to do it through Google Reader again! But I think this format looks pretty good.

Precious picture... and I like the format of the Sunday Surf too!

Looks like I need to check my Google Alerts a bit more often, eh? A very belated thank you for mentioning my post. :)
