I've been busy. I know I've been saying that a lot lately, but really. Busy.
What have I been busy doing, you ask? Well here it is (drum roll please)...
DC Style Factory (www.dcstylefactory.com)
Now that it's launched, and I actually have a couple of clients knocking...I don't think life is going to get less busy. And, what falls by the wayside? My mommy blog. I used to write multiple times in one week and now I'm lucky if I get one blog entry in.
I feel schizophrenic these days. Do I want to be a writer/journalist? Do I want to be a stylist/fashionista? I even contemplated hanging up my mommy blogging skates. Then I thought better of it. I do want M to read this blog one day. Honestly. Maybe not when she's 14, but when she's an adult. I want her to know all the crazy-ass shit running around in her mom's head as she was chasing two little kids around. I want her to know all the beauty, sacrifice, joy and frustration that comes with parenting.
So, I'll keep going.
And, for now, I hope you'll settle for some pictures of my weekend in New York with just the girls...little girls. One of the joys of having M grow older is that you get to do really cool shit like this. It's not just about the swinging at the park, building blocks, or tossing her around in the air. We discover things together now and it is amazing. To see her walking around the city, not a baby or toddler, but an actual little girl...one that has real, true thoughts, feelings, questions, and opinions. I can hardly believe it.
Then she asks me to pee and I remember, we have a ways to go. And I smile.
M doing my hair on the train. I lost a significant amount of hair during the creation of the scalp-torture device also known as a ponytail, but also got natural botox on my forehead from all the pulling. At one point, I was convinced my scalp was bleeding.
We took a cab to see an off-broadway musical performance of Pinkalicious. Kitty came too.
Soooooo excited for Pinkalicious, I may have tinkled myself.
"I've died and gone to heaven."
Of course we had to pretend to be Tom Hanks.
...and even Mommy got in on the action...
And, finally, hailing a cab to head back to the hotel for pizza and sleep. We heart NY.
