Learning To Be Mama
This past Friday, Hazel and I went to a storytime sing-a-long at the library. There were a bunch of other mama & papa duos with their babes all ready for some reading and interacting. It was cute- I sometimes forget that things for the baby are different, a little corny at first but at their core very sweet. So I smiled and sang along when I could. Hazel seemed to enjoy just watching the other kids sing,sway & play and it was good for me to just get out and about around other parents. She hasn't started crawling yet- but is a fan of the army crawl- like she's in basic training. I guess she gets that from my father's days in the army.
I haven't sewn in weeks. I stare longingly at the machine and I think she's starting to stare back. Tonight I am going to make an effort to dust her off and get a few pieces sewn. Presents-things to sell-clothes for Hazel. Off to make. Happy weekend xo
