A Birthday, parenthood, and my Christmas present

My youngest child, Bryony, is two years old today!! My holiday baby. You never realize how in love you will be with your children until you have them. You know you’ll love them, of course, just not how much. You also don’t realize how much you will fear for them, or how angry they can make you, or how sweet they can be when they want to be, or how funny they are without intending to be. You learn to be responsible very quickly, and to put someone else’s needs ahead of your own. You learn about pacing the floor when your child is sick, and you learn more than you ever wanted to know about Dora and Diego and Elmo and Big Bird and all the other characters that populate your child’s life.

I’ve been a parent for nearly seven years, and it still feels odd when one of the girls says “mama”. I wonder who they’re talking about. I don’t feel any older than seventeen! Okay, yeah, my knees and hips and ankles say otherwise, but I still love video games, still hate housework (although I do it), and would still rather go dancing or rollerskating than do homework. At the same time, there is not one moment of their lives that I would have willingly missed. There are days when hubby and I fight about something, and one part of me thinks “I wish I’d never gotten involved with this guy”, and the other part of me says “Yeah, but then you wouldn’t have Aneira and Bryony”, and the first part concedes defeat. I wouldn’t give them up for the world!

Speaking of hubby, I got my second peg loom for Christmas! In keeping with the Farscape theme, this one is Chiana. She is very much bigger than Aeryn. Well, let me rephrase that. They’re both the same length, about two feet long, but Chiana’s pegs are much bigger. Where Aeryn has 49 pegs, Chiana has 24. She’s meant for much heavier yarns, as I proved to myself by warping her with the yarn I had available. The weave was way too open. This now gives me an excuse to buy some chunkier yarn though!
