The Red Lace Dresses Part Two (sort of)

Dec 12, 2013 | Fashion, She's Sew Chic | 8 comments

It’s 12:09 a.m.

IF I had a baby who understood the concept of sleeping without a boob in her mouth (yes, I just said that) THEN I would be done AND I would have time to BLOG about it.  I NEVER get to blog.  But I swear I’ll be back strong as soon as possible.  I miss my blog.  One down, three to go.  Did I mention I am hosting Christmas?  When I say “crazy” you say “maybe”.


Crazy!…

    Oh, I can completely relate to the constant feeding and lack of time! My sweet little boy is following in his eldest sister’s footsteps and loves to sleep-suckle in order to soothe his reflux. It has gotten better since he started solids, but he is a very cuddly baby and my brain feels like it is made of cotton candy. So no decent blog posts for me either.

    Yay, so glad to hear a bit from you, however I still think that I am jealous of facebook because I think it gets time that us blog readers so envy. Glad you are doing fine and the baby sounds so sweet. I cannot wait to see the end result of the red lace dresses. Merry Christmas to all of your family.

    My fifth baby and my eighth baby have both been like that. Both girls, too. Sweet as can be, but a little high maintenance, haha. Baby number five is 16 now, and is a lovely girl, still a little passionate and artistic and intelligent and as independent as you would want a 16 year old to be – my one child who is determined to live in Europe and is creating her own photography business so as to help families who don’t have money for professional services and at the same time develop her craft. My number eight is turning one soon, so we’ll see how that turns out in time. I have had to lay aside almost everything I love to do (I’m an artist and writer) in order to take care of her, but I trust that God knew just what He was doing when He blessed me in my old age with such a little passionate being, haha! Christmas will come and go, and it will totally be okay if it is not everything you want it to be. It always comes again, and you will do it differently next year, or the year after that. Children don’t care as much as we think about all the trappings that seem so necessary for it to be magical. And you have nothing to prove to anyone, so don’t be afraid to see what might need to be laid aside for just this year – but if you can do it, then by all means, go for it with joy! Just letting you know that in my almost 50 years, I have finally figured out that perfectionism and it’s more worthy twin, idealism, is a hill that is not worth dying on, all the time. Love to you and your velcro baby and all of your family!

    I so understand this. My fifth baby and my eighth baby have both been like that. Both are girls, too. Sweet as can be, but a little high maintenance, haha.

Just letting you know that in my almost 50 years, I have finally figured out that perfectionism and it’s more worthy twin, idealism, is a hill that is not worth dying on, all the time, and holding our hands open before God is better than grasped closed around the way we want things to go. Love to you and your velcro baby and all of your family! The dress dream looks FABULOUS – I so hope you can finish it.
