Things have been pretty miserable around here lately. I’ve been stuck in the house with an inconsolable teething baby and very rainy dark weather. I need a break, but of course parenting is a 24 hour job and I have no break. Marlowe’s nap time is my eating, showering, cleaning time. Marlowe’s feeding is my blogging time. There are rarely any other moments where I can just sit and relax. Need more time? Need more hands? Need more space? Parents do. I need a cure-all for this crying. I need a cure-all for everything I need to accomplish while raising this little one. I need a cure-all for this past week. I need a cure-all for this lack of sleep, teething, and fussing.
Marlowe needs a mouth cure-all.
So while things continue being difficult… my in-the-mean-time-cure-all will have to be: focusing on all the little good things going on around me. There sure are a lot of good things and the rain will stop and the teething will eventually end. That being said, now onto all the little things around me that have put a smile on my face:
New bumpers for Babycake’s crib. Fabric chosen by mama. Awesomeness made by Heidi.
Marlowe sleeping an extra hour one day this week giving mama time for a proper breakfast.
Ice cream pie from Babycakes
vegan cookbook. Heidi gave me the book for Christmas. It was more than fitting considering 1) I’m vegan 2) Marlowes nickname is Babycakes 3) Since pregnancy I enjoy sweets. I’m still not good at baking and I don’t really have time for it so Heidi made the crust and it is sitting in my freezer until I make ice cream this week. NOM.
Tiny dualing grilled cheeses’. One vegan. One with mustard (ew).
Late night and early morning sewing while baby sleeps.
One more. To be sent off tomorrow. (Sorry bout the wrinkles)
Looking forward to this
and helping Heidi set up the booth.
Awesome wooden teethers making it into Babycakes mouth.
A content little face that takes all the previous screaming bad vibes away.
Other pleasing things (not pictured): clear vision (still so crazy– it boggles my mind grapes) and short wet hair not bothering my neck.
&While I have your attention (if I have your attention): another thing that has really been making my days brighter is all the warm and wonderful comments and emails I receive from you guys– my readers. Thank you. Really. I’m sorry I’m slow to respond to emails and especially with comments, but they really do mean a lot to me! A whole lot. Also, I’m sorry if I don’t comment on other’s blogs as much as I should, but I do read them! I swear! I’m working on responding and commenting more. Thank you again<3
