getting my groove back

something about having kids makes you redefine yourself- and that, I believe is a good thing. But one day you wake up and notice they aren't so little anymore. You come downstairs and there they all are- fed, watching tv- playing a game even....and you didn't get the milk down or have to explain the rules. It is bitter sweet- for one thing- you got to sleep until 8am....and that is a good thing! but you do kind of miss being needed- or sure, they still need you- but a little less than they did yesterday. So it was time to begin to find me again. What do I want to do with those free spaces of time- I've always been a pretty creative person- so I unpacked my material (Finally!) and started to sew- here is one finished project in a long list- a few more are close to being completed and as I complete one about 4 more are getting added to the list! It feels good to find me- to be finding me....I'm pretty sure there are a few things I haven't uncovered yet- who knows what I'll find! In the mean time though I'm taking it slowly- and enjoying (and craving) the times with they still call for "Mama".......


  1. Hi Meg,
    I couldn't find your email, so I will comment it here. We used China Adoption With Love, Inc. (CAWLI) They are in fact top notch! We would use them again in a heartbeat.

  3. Are you taking orders?? Can you make hairbows too??
