There have been quieter months on record. I'm sure of it. Most definitely less stressful ones. And I'm certain the combination of renovations, starting up an online business and preparing my beautiful boy for his first operation, have been the main contributing factors behind the chaos. But it's all good. I'm loving the thought of the fresh new spaces in our home... loving creating more bright and colourful designs for friends and family to dress their littlies in and most importantly... LOVING that those pesky adenoids are OUT and all the fluid in those little ears is GONE and we can put today behind us. Because today, was traumatic.
I am so proud of Angus and how he handled the whole unpleasant ordeal. These are the experiences I really didn't consider before becoming a Mama. Sleepless nights, temper tantrums, dirty nappies and the like... all of that, I anticipated. But the tear your heart out pain of seeing fear in their eyes or holding them as they go under anaesthetic or watching them claw at the bandage on their arm where the needle went in... these are the things that knock us for a six. The ones nothing can prepare us for and the ones we won't forget in a hurry.
A few houses in our neighbourhood are really getting into the swing of Halloween this year... the boys are a bit young to get into the celebrations at this stage... yet I still couldn't resist whipping up these tees for my cheeky Halloweenies. And they're now part of the Button Tots range.
