so it was bound to happen – i went from being a regular-ish blogger to a once a month blogger.
why? um. well, because quite frankly: BABIES ARE TIME CONSUMING. who knew?
in fact if someone asked me today what being the mother of an 8.5 month old is like, the most honest response would be this: take your ‘alone time’, saturday night plans, sleep-ins and your growing to-do list. throw it into a blender and mix it on high. disperse the contents around your living room. now walk around blindfolded trying to piece your life back together. while a monkey swings precariously from the light fixtures and pelts you with smushed up cubes of sweet potato.
and as the room spins and nothing that needs to get done ever seems to actually get done, your baby will catch your gaze and give you the most gigantic smile. as if you are literally the most exciting person on the planet. and in those moments it all.becomes.worth.it.
babies are basically brainwashing little squishy bundles of sheer delight. consider yourselves warned.
our pilot is oh so nearly done. somehow we made a tv show. and the good news is, we’re really proud of it.
the air date will be sometime in december. yay!
there are so many things i want to create. here are just a few:
1. for phix’s room one day: painted plastic animals
2. embroidering photographs. inspired by the incredible maria puentes.
5. vases hung in a frame. yes please.
