who are we?

It occurred to us that it is much more fun to follow a blog when you know who everyone is, so we thought we’d draw you a map. Feeleez is made up of the adults Kris, Natalie, and Nathan, and their children.

Kris: Kris and Natalie spent at least a year next to each other silently practicing Ashtanga yoga before actually having a real conversation. But there must have been some strong communication going anyway because once they finally did get rolling it was a match made in heaven and now they can not stop talking. Kris is married to Tim (a smoke-jumping, fire-fighting, lovely man) and they have Sascha and Elliott.

Elliott: Elliott is now 4. He has an amazingly low voice and a sweet, sweet, tenderness. He studies what he loves: climbing, football, hockey, hockey equipment, construction, with intelligence and intensity.

Sascha: is one. She loves food, balloons(popping them), squirrels, gymnastic feats, and blow up floatie tubes. She leans into life chest forward completely certain of herself and her world.

you can follow this sweet family here.

Natalie: is partners with Nathan. She abhors the term stepmother as it certainly does not convey the immense amount of love and connection she feels with Xi and Bella, whom she began to parent in earnest when Xi was 10 months and Bella was two and a half. Natalie and Nathan welcomed sweet Echo into the family and now they are five(!).

Nathan: is partners with Natalie, as mentioned before, and dear friends with Kris. Natalie strains to hear what they might be talking about while helping kids up or down some park apparatus because it is always fascinating. (Nathan is also a stellar life/parenting coach and can be reached at nmmctague@yahoo.com.)

Bella: is eight and a half. She is big in every way possible, in ideas, in emotions, in movements. She moves in and out of the house causing huge waves of excitement and energy. She loves fairies and magic.

Xi: is six. She is royal in her ways, hates it that she is younger than Bella, smart as a whip and not easy to read. She loves dialog(and will remember it forever), and finery like jewels and clothing.

Echo: is two. She reads minds, has an entire imaginary step-family (Mama Pom Pom, Daddy Cort-who died, a dog named Mister, and a cat named Island), and has an insatiable appetite for stories both written and verbal. She remembers anything anyone ever says, thinks, or does and constantly shocks all of us on a daily basis.

There is, of course, so much more, but this can serve as a basic map to get you started.
