Coffee & Kisses.
A rainy morning here and all is well.
I’ve got my (second) cup of coffee, a light drizzle outside, fans blowing, and my sweet boy giving me kisses. *lesigh*
Yesterday the hubs and I got to a move – Jarassic World – and then, silly woman that I am, I decided to stay home with the boy in the heat rather than stay with in-laws and air-conditioning. I say ‘silly woman’ because I couldn’t fall asleep because of the movie. I was nervous, and ridiculous, and because the hubs was down the street, all kinds of scary things were hiding in the shadows… Scary, dinosaur things. Luckily, the morning came and now? All of the dinosaurs have slunk away. *smile*
I’ve had a rather significant weekend, because I finally gave away ALL of our baby things. I’m sad because I had been holding onto it for the past two years in case we have another one. Giving it all away (20 boxes, plus large item things) feels like a finale of sorts. Close curtains. No more babies, even though a good many of the fibers my being are aching to have another one. Grr. I can’t tell if I really, truly would like to have another baby, or if it’s just biology. Do you know what I mean? Biology can be all sorts of tricky sometimes.
Add to the aches of all that, three of my dear friends are about to have babies – one of them within days. I feel like pregnancy is contagious when friends are prego. It just passes from one to the next. Harumph again on the subject. …. It will pass. But before it does, my daughter and I get to attend a baby shower today. It will be fun and happy, so for that, I am glad and grateful, and in particular, excited for my friend as the babe is her first.
Enjoying this long weekend away from work. Last night I finally caught up with all of your love-ily posts. Phew! That felt so good.*
And… Oh. Also last night, the boyo and I went on the sweetest walk around the neighborhood. He was so fun and curious and wonderful. Everything you would expect from a 2-year old boy. I felt like he had suddenly grown-up a little more. I could sense him being ‘older’ than he was last week. It made me happy and a little sad. It is so incredible how they do that …. Which, is another reason why I am sort of longing for another one – girl or boy – because I don’t want these discoveries and moments to be our last round already.
Feeling less grumpy than Friday (again, Phew!). My body’s hormones have settled down a little. Now time to get ready for our regular bookstore morning… Happy Sunday to all of you.*
