The first week of November has been a rocky one for all of us. Despite the nearly T-shirt weather and clear skies there has been a dark cloud of stress plaguing the family. Perhaps hardest hit has been our sensitive little boy who has some very stubborn teeth. I am trying my hardest to get us all to breath and enjoy the simplest pleasures.
Breakfast with egg and soldiers (buttered toast fingers)
Early sunsets in the warm autumn evenings
New favourite stories from the library (Berenstain Bears Classics)
And an early birthday present from Mama and Daddy: Charlie
Charlie is a fairtrade Camden doll made by a hearing-impaired womens cooperative in Peru. He is a little smaller than a traditional Waldorf doll, but well made and sure to be well loved. They already share naptimes, cuddles, Mama milk, and a love of nudity. I can’t wait to see what mischief they get up to.
And can’t wait for the day all those teeth come in.
