My friend Laura and I were cracking up the other day about how every mom thinks her kid is exceptional. Your kid will do something new, and you'll be all "Oh my god! My kid is the smartest kid that ever lived!". I just find this so funny because every kid is exceptional and special in their own way. Kids mature at their own pace and it really means nothing in the whole scheme of life. When they walked or talked or popped a tooth won't make or break them getting into Harvard. I hate that it can be a competition between some parents. Sure, I think Lily is just the cutest/smartest/most adorable thing since sliced bread, but so does every mom. I don't think she is better than any other kid. It is important to me that Lily not get a big head and think she is better than anyone else. Well, in truth, Lily literally has a large head, but I digress... I may joke about her being perfect, but I hope people know that I'm just joking. I want her to grow up knowing that just like her, each and every person is special and unique in their own way. I just like to document her changes here on the blog so that her friends and relatives who live far a way can keep up with what she is up to. And maybe when she's older, she'll be interested to know when she popped her first tooth -for what that's worth.
Now, to add to the sheer randomness of this post, I have to add a photo of the cute little canary-yellow desk that I desperately want to buy from an antique store in town. I think it would be super cute in our bedroom in place of the thing we affectionately call the "wobbly table" I got from LTD years ago.
I am also eyeing some cute vintage suitcases at the same shop that I would like to use for photo shoots. I think I'm going to break down and get them.
More sheer randomness in web-cam form:
Yes, I have a Colt's logo on my cheek. We wore them at work today. And, I let my kid play with heavy metal objects.
