Is it really June? I’m pretty sure it’s still March. It’s Friday and I just picked up Alice from daycare with Dylan in tow. It was a hard week for her. We traded in her diapers for pink, mermaid underwear and she was learning to use the restroom at school. She gave her teachers a hug good bye (I thought it was strange, they don’t usually go in for a hug) and I exchanged the normal pleasantries with them (thank you for taking care of my girl, have a great weekend, etc…). Then I got home and saw the email that day care was closing down for the foreseeable future. Oh, now I understood the hug. Anyway, it just feels like time has stood still during the lockdown but since it really is June, here’s what I’ve been up to:
Listening to the Alessia Cara (children’s) pandora station. I still listen to the pandora with commercials. Ha.
Watching Gilmore Girls all over again. I just started season 5. Rory is in her second year at Yale, she just met Logan (team Logan, for sure) and Lorelai is dating Luke. This might be my favorite season.
Wanting a work out. I missed the last 2 days because our a/c broke and was getting replaced. So grateful for the small wall unit in our back room that kept us cool.
Making rosemary/olive oil bread in the Zojirushi today. Alice loves to fill up the measuring cups. And by fill them up, I mean spill the flour all over the place.
Sewing the summer bib sets. There will be 5 (!!) new sets of handmade baby bibs. Mark your calendars- They are being released Tuesday, June 23! AND AND just finished the Wild Things Collection. Really, really excited. The collection is launching next week!! Tuesday, June 16!!
Reading The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed by Jessica Lahey. Enjoyed the first half, but the second half seems more geared for older kids so I don’t quite connect with that yet. Kind of seems impossible that Alice and Dylan will be teenagers or even adults one day.
Loving these Dear Stella Honey Bee fabrics: beehives and hedgehogs. Come onnnn. Would so love to use this for the back on a modern baby quilt for someone. Send me an email if you’re my person: firstname.lastname@example.org
Feeling grateful that I get to spend all this time with my kiddos and husband, but stressed with all of the uncertainties in the future. I’m.a.planner.
Thinking about my momma. Wondering how she would handle all of this.
Sending you all big virtual hugs. Thanks for being here :)
