There have beens several times in my life when the pace of everything shifted and it always takes some getting used to. Usually things get noticeably busier and you realize how frantic life feels. But not this time. This time our pace has gotten noticeably slower. Slow and quiet and simple. Some days it makes me feel a little crazy - deciding between a walk or a play gym seems a little too simple - but it is nice too. Lucy and I have time to walk slowly and chat over lunch. And Lucy seems to be finding a little zen in her personality too. She is infamous for not even liking t.v. because it forces her to stop moving, but lately I find her curling up with the ipad for mini chill sessions.
