So it’s been over a month since I’ve blogged- Sorry! Same old excuses- I’m looking after the baby, chasing sleep etc. etc. Ahhhh sleep, some day I will catch you again. If I was smart I would be sleeping right now, since the girl is, but instead I’m here! I’ve been away so long that I only just noticed….
1. Word Press has changed it’s format. I wonder when that happened?
2. All sorts of cool people have been doing similar projects and linking to me. Check it out:
***actually I don’t really know if this one is saying good or bag things about me, as it it in Swedish (I think), but I think it’s pretty awesome that someone from Sweden is talking about me!
Last week, our young film maker friend Mr. Meriwether, came by again to film us for his documentary. I call him our young friend though he is only a few years younger than myself, because when he first contacted us I envisioned him as being middle aged. Any how I was feeling quite sheepish about being filmed because the other people he is filming seem to be so much greener than we are ( one of them is Joel Saltin)
Anyhow the first thing we did was go for a walk with Aurora to buy a diaper bag off of Craig’s list, and it turned out to be not what I wanted at all, but I felt all silly so I bought it anyway, and now I can’t resell it! Aurora sucks on ADVENT silicone soothers because she refused the natural rubber ones and her thumb and I was tired of being a pacifier. We buy a lot more packaged things now and put a lot out to recycle- sigh. He caught us, on camera, making spanokopita with phyllo pastry that came in cardboard and plastic.It just made me aware of all the things I want to be doing but am not doing as much of due to lack of time and sleep. He also filmed our bed time routine, which made me paranoid that people would see it and criticize my parenting skills. I’ve gotten lots of criticism on the garbage project and that is one thing, but parenting is a whole new bucket of worms, and I just don’t want to hear what other people think about how we’re doing (unless it’s praise:) Graham (Meriwether) seems to think we are still on the right track though and he was in awe of Aurora (our little charmer). Anyhow he’ll be back again in a few months and hopefully we’ll be a little more rested (fingers crossed) and a little more green….although ….I told Graham, on camera that we weren’t going to do any packaged baby foods, but already Aurora hated the bulk rice cereal but loved the packaged oat baby cereal…so we’ll see. My Dad says she is not a tree hugger, but I think she will be. She is just too young to make informed decisions right now:)
