It's March.


The other night Andrew was on the computer before bed, when he said to me over his shoulder:  "You know it's March, right?"  My reply:  "And?"  Then I saw that he was looking at Clinka's Apples... which hadn't been updated in a while.  I told him clearly:  "I'm just not inspired right now."  I think March is largely to blame for that.  I want spring.  I want it so badly I can taste it.  I want to feel the sun on my skin, and smell that fresh-spring-earthy-smell.  There are actually plenty of Julian & Nora stories I could share, but unfortunately the most entertaining ones as of late also contain images of poo and other not-so-nice things.  So tonight I will tell you about a lovely book I ordered for Nora, called "Someday", purchased entirely based on the cover (which is how I make most of my purchases).  The book arrived today, and before putting Julian to bed I read to him (Nora was too tired for a book tonight).  I actually broke into tears part way through.  Julian said:  "Mommy, keep reading."  So, I kept reading... with crackling voice.  Every Mommy must buy it.  As well as some tissue to go along with it.

P.S.  It is the next day... Tonight I found Julian scribbling with red pen in this book.  At first I was very upset, I wanted this to be a beautiful keepsake for Nora.  Julian could tell by the look on my face how unhappy I was... he immediately cried and said "I'm sorry Mommy.".  Then I realized this book is made all the more special by him leaving his little mark in it.  Thank you, Jbug.
