'Twas My Birthday
Yes, she made this for me, it was so gorgeous!!! Unfortunately Hosea got his hands on it soon after and it was destroyed. It's sure a good thing I had the foresight to take a photo!
She makes so many beautiful and interesting pictures.
Last week, when she was upset with me and threatening to run away from home (! sleep in the woods apparently!! I told her I knew how she felt, and that sometimes it seems like a good alternative to just get away from people and sleep in the woods...) she made some heart shaped pictures that simply said "no no no no no no" all over them and handed them to me. I had asked her to have some alone time in her room to calm down. She needed to draw in order to calm down. It worked :-)
A co-worker with 3 boys has given me a lot of hand me down clothes, including this ridiculously cute little robe. He runs around the house in it after his baths.
I had a nice birthday, I think. I honestly can barely remember it already. That is why I try to write this other stuff down. "The days go by so slowly and the years go by too fast" often goes through my head...it all whooshes by and so much I don't even remember! I've got a stack full of items to put in baby books, and none of my kids are even babies anymore!!
I'm in a good place at 36, tho, and I'm grateful for that and for these sweet and fiesty little ones who give me so much love. Here's to another year!
