a long november.

When Claire does something she's especially proud of she shouts, "Ididit!" Sometimes she also adds a little "ta-da!" as a verbal flourish. I love watching her, but you already know that.

This month has been a blur. Baking. Hosting my first Thanksgiving (note to self: 1 turkey is enough, fool). Cutting felt leaves. The Weepies on repeat. Playdates that I loved. Ones the girl loved too. A trip to the movies with girlfriends. Sick kiddo. Sick Dada. New chooz. Rain. A million stories read in my lap. New signs. New words. Trying. The girl keeps growing, growing, growing. I find new things to appreciate in the Dada. I find new strength in myself. A million written words and bunch of photos. Sketchy editing at best. I don't like posting every day. To quote myself from the other night, "I am so sick of me." So, friends, a little break is in store, but don't worry, I'll be back soon. I promise.

Ididit. And Ta-da.

Here's to us, my friend! It was a fun experiment. You made it. Have a great few days off.

We'll see you tomorrow at 10am, okay? I can promise I will be in my pajamas, but Maggie will be ready for Claire!

Ditto on The Weepies! Finally finished The Time Traveler's Wife! Loved it! If I haven't told you before, thanks for sending it to me...even if it did take me a year to read it:)

You know I blame you for getting me involved in Nablopomo...or should I thank you? It's too soon to say. I love reading your blog. You take a well-deserved break, but come back soon.

Hey, I read "The Time Travelers Wife" too. Did you like it?
