Oh my! Today was a day. I think a little wine and the gentle rhythm of some knitting might be just what I need. My Sophie Rose put me through the ringer today, and she may or may not have been victorious.
Age two and a half brings some growing pains. She wants to dress herself – great, I can get on board with this new independence. She changed outfits four times today just. because. she. could. She wanted to wear her ballet slippers to Ella’s ballet class, but she could only find one. So, she went barefoot. Yes, yes she did.
It is days like this I need to remember slowly and slowly, moment by moment we raise our kids. They can, will, and should have off days. Tomorrow will begin a fresh and maybe the growing won’t hurt so much.
I am making progress on Eva’s Bluebell sweater! I have made it through two rounds of the yoke pattern and am quite happy with how it is looking.
On the reading front: The girls chose some super cute library books at the end of last week. (Links within the pictures.)
