baby c: the first 10 days…

Well here we are… equal parts, “it’s like she’s always been here” and “wow- you mean, she’s really ours?“. 10 days later, I’m just about used to thinking, “we have a baby” – but that’s such an object-attributive perspective. “we have a daughter.” That’s just different, isn’t it. She’s not a thing, she’s a living, … Continue reading

33 weeks… The problem with being a princess.

Poor Ol’ Kate. Despite my moaning and complaining last week, I have to admit:  there Would be something worse than having people comment, criticize and speculate upon your body every day throughout your pregnancy – and that would be having people comment, criticize and speculate every day when you’re not even expecting (as far as … Continue reading
