I could say a lot about the past few weeks and why I haven’t updated here.
All I can divulge is that I’m going through a rough patch at the moment with a very personal issue. However, I’m assembling a team as I type this that will be of immeasurable help and relief, both short and long-term. I also needed to drop one of my classes this semester, but it needed to be done.
So I’ll diffuse that comment with some pictures since my last update here.
I’m starting my Beginning Millinery class tomorrow and am very excited. Going to learn how to make hats and make three hats in as many weeks. Palpable anticipation!! Back in the days of burlesque, I used to marvel at how much mediocre looking feather fascinators used to cost and I thought, I can do better! Here’s putting up or shutting up about it.
On a parenting note, here are two books that were highly recommended by my therapist:
Parenting is hard no matter what the age of your kidling. This current stage finds both of us feeling frustrated about breastfeeding. I’d anticipated weaning her at the beginning of the year, but it seems apparent that the poor babe isn’t ready and I’m not going to push it.
We still co-sleep, too, and sometimes it’s a challenge because your body isn’t yours at all. Any quirks that you have about your body are manifested tenfold. Forget any sort of privacy at all.
Coco is becoming very confident in her fashion recommendations and wouldn’t let me leave the house yesterday in my Adidas. “Nooooooooooo. Booooooootsssssssssss.” There you have it. She’s a lovable little person who tests your boundaries and has a good sense of humor. I’ll take growth for $100, Alex.
Random, but did you know that idiosyncrasy is spelled that way? Keep looking at the word. Doesn’t it look incorrect and weird?? I kept spelling it idiosynchrocy and idiosynchracy to no avail.
Nothing pleases me more than getting treats in the mail, especially when they are from one of my very favorites, Sugarpill Cosmetics. They went above and beyond the call of duty with their customer service and they are tops! Behold, my Valentine’s discounted treats.
I’ll make updating here a more regular thing when I can deal with some other stuffs, dear readers.
Have a wonderful weekend,
