we are very into imaginative play here. and some days, oliver’s favorite game is to snuggle under the covers and “be in a burrow.” we are bunnies who like to eat carrots and lettuce and who hide from the fox (usually, i play the fox while eliza and ollie are hiding in the burrow). any way you play it, though, we are snuggled in and very mellow and not much else is going on around us.
this game is a good metaphor for our winter.
but now that the spring is here and we have some more air and space and light in our days, now that everyone (read: eliza) is feeling better, i find myself needing a little more to do! i know that’s a ridiculous thing to say, a mama who is mere days (weeks?!) away from adding another baby to her brood! but, the other night, i went so far as to tell eliza that i was bored!
of all the good suggestions she had, writing seemed like one that might be the best idea for right now. it’s something i can do as much or as little of as i’d like, but not something that feels like a chore (my complaint about many of her ideas) or that feels like i can’t pick up/ put down/ spend time & money on (making art, running, learning to swim).
i’m eager to get back to blogging and eager to find myself in the community again. when i was ttc & pregnant with O and blogging so much, it was an amazing community. i hope to get back into it all here- and i’m glad you are along for the ride.
