Every time I sit down to blog I get overwhelmed by two many posts.Too much is going on. I wanted to do a blog post about my trip to Dallas and how Davy was mad at me for leaving her. She stayed mad for a full week. It was no fun. It made me question everything from my parenting style, to attachment issues. I was assured by everyone it just means she is fine and was really pissed at me leaving her for 72 hours.
I was going to do a blog post about how much I am totally in love with my dear friend Marie who I visited when I was in Dallas. Marie is the best mother to the most well-adjusted teenager I know. She is raising a liberal-minded, artistic kid in suburban Texas- its not easy for either of them. I spent a lot of time with them when we all lived in Brooklyn moons and moons ago. It’s funny to say that 8 year old Madeline is exactly the same as 16- year old Madeline, but in her own way she is exactly the same. Just much much much much much taller. I am so proud of both of them. I love them. It makes my heart burst just talking about them. Also on March 6 Marie is going to give birth to a little boy. Her world is coming full circle. I can’t wait to meet Max. Also Madeline is now driving me around. Craziness.
I was going to do a blog post about how prolific my crafting has been and how proud of myself I am to have gotten a few big projects off my plate.
I finished a quilt for Baby Max
I made a bag out of a coffee sack
Made some napkins for my friend
I made some crayons for Davy (she calls them her cookies)
I also made these crayon guys in a little tin for her
And finally I was going to do a blog post about Davy’s hair. How much fun both of us are having with adding beads and braids to it. When I first started to knit, I had the fervent need to learn everything about how to knit. I feel the same way about Davy’s hair. It blends my love of crafts, fiber and MY DAUGHTER. Holy shit. I might have to open a salon, but first I have to learn how to braid under-handed. Apparently there is a difference between braiding overhanded (which is how I learned) and underhanded which is somehow totally different and yet completely the same. You need to do underhanded braiding to do cornrows. I even made my self a fake hair practice board. I have lost my mind.
Davy’s hair practice board (I call it “Still Davy”)
Also we have all been sick. Today was the first day we left our house and it was to go next door for our neighbors birthday party. Please note- boogers and cupcakes
Davy is 27-months. We are potty training to some success (yay). Apparently bribery totally works
We are navigating temper tantrums and emotional highs and lows Davy’s new nickname is Sybil. Sybil with fabulous hair.
Also after 4 years I got my Oregon Drivers License (don’t I look really happy) and a new car. So yeah. It’s been busy.
