The weekly speech therapy session went well, although Pari kept crawling into the therapists lap when thunder would sound. I made it to Wal-Mart to get some glow sticks, which will be tacked to the wall in a couple of locations around the house in case of another power outage. We managed to get through with a candle, but it just didn't feel very toddler safe, and finding a lighter in a non-smokers house is a challenge.

Tonight we will be interviewing a doula* to see how we like her. Unfortunately, this means that I have to clean the living room. Sigh.

*A Doula is a woman that is trained to assist a woman during labor and birth. Doulas are knowledgeable about the processes of labor and birth, the emotional aspects of birth and comfort measures which can help you through your birthing experience. A doula does not take over the job of the partner, instead she helps support you and your partner. A doula is a calm and nurturing person that acts as a vital part of your birth team.

Glow sticks, what a great idea~!
I'll have to get some, I'm fumbly with matches and lighters in the dark.
Would an enclosed candle work for Pari, the kind that have a chimney sort of thing, but look pretty?

We have a really neat candle lantern like this one
but it just get's too hot, and she reaches for the neat light source. Candles are out, and glowsticks have been distributed throughout the house.

Doula hunting

Have you talked with Otterdancing? I believe she does that.
