September 1, 2017

I’ve been a notebook keeper since forever, though what they look like tends to change. Lately I’ve been writing goals and intentions for the beginning of the month and doing a little recap at the end of the month. Yesterday I was looking at the goals I had set for August and felt pretty fucking terrible. I could have just gone down the list and written: nope. nope. nopenopenope. sort of. I wondered why I even bother with them. I was reminded when I got to the recap. We build raised beds (Eli got to use the drill!) and planted a vegetable garden. We had kids over who had the best time ever playing in our giant dirt mountain. I planted my dahlias (Finally!). Lots of playdates, time with friends, and time outside. Oh and… ELI WEANED!

I really should say that I weaned him. He would have kept nursing for the foreseeable future but I was DONE. D.O.N.E. It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that nursing is a relationship that needs to work for both parties. Because of my own childhood experience I really wanted my kids to be number 1, but that doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice myself. I’m not interested in being a martyr mama, thank you very much.

So. Yay! Happy September!
