I kind of do- I remember my plastic pink skipping rope with the stripey pink and white handles and the boundless energy of being a kid at recess... I watch Finch now running around in circles after dinner and then being completely asleep half an hour later. It's so amazing to watch this kid grow and learn so fast! I had three glasses of liquid cheer- red wine at dinner, something I really never do but boy did I need it today. Up since 6 am, no more naps- going, going, going, all day long! Finally its my time. I always have so much to say , in my head, about being a new mum, but I never seem to write it down. It is the most crazy roller coaster ride ever. I get to the point where I figure, what's the point of talking about it, since its something millions of women experience. On the other hand I always have my eyes open for mums experiencing similar things as me, so perhaps writing it down would be of value somehow. Yet this blog has always been about my work and so perhaps i will start a new blog with all my free time! Another mummy crowing about not getting enough sleep or being tired of sandbox battles with the trucks.
Anyway- I managed to lose my iphone this week. Can you effing believe that? Never lost a thing in my life really, not a wallet or a diary or anything and then, my new toy that I only got in May. Oh it was a horrible day and I won't bore you with the panic I went through. But what does my dear hubby do but buy another used one on Ebay for 80$ that very night! I got it today and its great. ♥ Thank-you darlin'!
And in conclusion, wine ( and coffee ) is great, toddlers are exhausting and absolutely adorable, summer is half over and I am finished my book! " Willow Finds a Way" will be out in spring 2013 and here is an image from what I hope are the final, final revisions! Phew, how did I do it with that kid running all over- I remember being so anxious that I would not be able to do it and I did. There, wow. Time for bed.
