I already knew that. It was just…
I began…“a few people have been asking me for Keira’s things when she’s done with them. You know, basically her clothes. For their girls. Stuff that she’s grown out of.”
“I can’t do it. I just can’t. I know it’s the right thing, I guess it is? You know, to give your stuff to another family. Or to share. Or whatever it is..hand em’ over, hand em’ down, or whatever you want to call it. And I know the idea is that you get them back, or most of them anyway. I get that. But, well…I can’t. I mean…”
He went on..."you did that for a long time - be apart from her. So I can see why it would be hard to say 'goodbye' to something that was a large part of your comfort while you waited. And so now she’s worn these clothes well and she's outgrown them…and you’re grieving. The clothes, which for you represent your wait for her and loving her all those years...and the fact that she's growing up. I totally get that.”
"To be honest, I feel that way about Quint’s stuff too…I can’t see it go to anyone and I hate to even pack it up. I do it, but I don’t like it. It’s so hard for me. I physically get sick thinking of giving them away. I can’t imagine. Like I’m saying goodbye to his childhood…to him…every time”.

- I wear a housecoat and slippers.
- Summer was a blink.
- Thanksgiving has officially died.
- I love Turkey and Cranberry Sauce

- I am a hypocrite.

Then suddenly, he was two. I mean, full-force two. And I was amazed. I have a two-year old? How is this possible? He’s two! It was wonderful, scary, and sadly – still such a blur of life and activity and time passing way too quickly.
A friend reminded me “the days are long, but the years are short…”
So short, sweet boy. So short…
Mama loves you

It’s his birthday on Monday – and he’ll be three. Which, to be honest – I’m having a hard time with. And I have a little post about that coming. But in the meantime, who can argue with me that he’s the most gorgeous and spectacular boy? (with a specific and glorious sense of personal style)
He is funny, charming, and a total hand full. And he touches my heart with his deep rooted joy for life. He exudes happiness and it is contagious.
I cannot imagine what I did right, friends, that I should get to know him and love him as I do.
He is a blessing!

And I’ll be the first to admit, it’s practically impossible for me to keep up with my blog-roll. The list of blogs on my Google Reader alone is enough to overwhelm me – but actually making the time to sit down and catch up…it’s not pretty. And some of you post daily. Wowza. It’s taken me three months to read “The Shack”. I mean, I can’t even read a chapter of a book a day, let alone post every day. Or read blogs every day. And that kinda makes me a bad blogger. Maybe a little bit of a hypocrite, because I love having you stop by – and yet, I’m not always able to return the favor. Gulp.
I’m missing you all. Truly, I am.
