7 days

I am lying here with so much to say… So many thoughts and as always nowhere to begin. Always 1am, always buzzing.

In just this past moment I was imagining Wry’s 2nd trip to Denmark, the possibility of it being soon… And how much it breaks my heart to think of him excited and eager for the airplane, Olemor’s-land, and then asking where his Daddy is. MAP has a tight schedule and we have always agreed that going overseas for a week is insane because the time is takes for jetlag to wear off is nearly as long if not more.

Well I retract my feelings about that. Because as fast as the weeks go with my babies, a week is also a vast period for us, so full of new things, milestones, laughter, tears… A thousand adventures in 7 days. Fleeting but deeply etched in my heart.

So no. No longer is “just a week” just a week. A week is so much longer and richer than no time at all. A week is an open chapter just waiting for a Wryter & a Story… And a me and a you, baby.

Please, let’s go.

my baby. relishing these last weeks of 2-year-oldness. i never realized how much watching my babies grow would crush me as much as they fill me with pride. #wryterpillar

Happy Friday, friends. I want to share this very special cause with you: As some of you may know, October is breast cancer awareness month. This year Stella & Dot has teamed with the Noreen Fraser Foundation to create these beautiful little bracelets to raise as much money as we can for research and awareness.
This is so near to my heart. Our Story was named after one of the most wonderful, sparkling, gorgeous people I have ever known. She lost her battle with breast cancer just 3 months shy of Wry’s birth. Missing her everyday and hoping that the money we raise through this boutique can someday come up with a cure for those who also fought and are fighting through this shitty disease!

Facebook with Jess and Louise.

You two really are birds of a feather.

Oh goodness, will you just take a gander at this?! Love.

Who dat?

  • Wryter: *pointing to an old tin printed photo of Marilyn Monroe* Who's that, Mommy?
  • Me: That's Marilyn Monroe! She's an old movie star & Mommy really loves her. Isn't she pretty?
  • Wryter: Yea... No. No! I don't like her.
  • Me: You don't like her?
  • Wryter: No.
  • Me: Why not?
  • Wryter: I don't like... I don't like I don't 'member who it is... Because Mommy like her!
  • (I can now see that we do indeed have some mommy-envy going on.)

So this week…

Was ridiculous. I don’t even know where it started and where it ended, but I do know that I am constantly being given the opportunity to speak to amazing friends -and- (if I’m lucky) I get to see them, too. But mainly knowing they’re there is something I’m really never grateful enough for. So to my friends, I know I’ve been weird and not returnin phone calls, texts, etc., but realio, trulio, I lovio you all. Thank you for thinking of me.

Also, one can of beer (if consumed within 20 minutes) has been the most excellent end-of-day milk-booster and mothercalmerdowner.

"… it is an extremely intense emotional, physical and psychological reaction to breastfeeding. It’s annoyance, creepy-crawly, anger, anxiety, toe-curling, shiver-inducing, wall-punching, hair-pulling, want-to-run-through-a-brick-wall all wrapped into one. It is not pain. I crave pain. This is something else. It starts the second he latches on and goes away as soon as he lets go. It’s like nothing I could ever really explain in words."

This is EXACTLY what I experienced with Wry from the time I was about one month pregnant until weaned just around his 2nd birthday.

All. The. Feels.

Had no idea this was a thing. Wish is known sooner, I think it would have helped me a lot. Also in this postpartum whirl I’ve been in. Hormones, man.

Technology never ceases to amaze me. Just nuts that I can see -down to the tree shrubbery- where every single viewer of this blog is coming from.
