RTT: The most wonderful time of the year
For some reason, as soon as we got to the cow at the zoo, Moira decided to be scared, so when we saw the goats, I told her they were dancing. Because I wanted to watch them fight for a bit. That's a valid reason to lie to your kid, right?
The one thing I hate about spring is my weird allergy, where I have a sore throat or an ear ache for a couple of months straight. It's also the only time of year where I sneeze. The best part is, I always forget that this will happen, so I spend a couple of weeks wondering why I'm so slightly sick and avoiding human contact so as to not spread it.
I finally checked out Color Your Cloth and I really want to try it. Pah? Sika? Want to help me make batik sometime after Norwescon?
Not helping with the sick feeling, I automatically wake up at 5am now, if Moira doesn't wake up earlier because I know she'll wake up soon. And then she nurses for at least an hour before settling down to sleep again. It takes me about a half an hour to fall back asleep and then she wakes up for good in about a half hour after that. I went to bed at 9pm last night to catch up. I think I need to do that again tonight.
Speaking of matching outfits, Norwescon is coming up. I hope to get some sewing done while Willow is visiting this weekend since the things I wore last year are now too big for me. I'm excited because I will be away from Moira for 4 nights and I'm hoping this will be the end of nursing. And maybe she will stop waking up at 5am if she isn't going to get milk. Probably not though. I'm also nervous because I'll be gone for 4 nights. Mostly for Walker's sake. She's usually pretty gleefully shrieky with him, even when she's unhappy as I hand her to him, so I think it will be okay. He keeps telling me they will be fine. I am using this time to mentally prepare myself for the separation though.
Moira still sits on the potty occasionally, and she usually does something when she does. We aren't pushing it, but are still offering it as an option.
Randomness is happening at The Bitchin; Wives Club today. Go take a look.
