About Me

My photo
I'm a thirty something displaced single mom. Displaced because I sometimes wonder how I got here... I am generally happy. I try to be real, and honest about my thoughts and feelings. I like to think there is a method to my madness.

Some time now...

I haven't written at all in some time. I have mostly been deep in thought, or deep in shit. Not to say things have been all bad. I have had a whole year with my son, which nothing would ever make up for. I've had some lovely adventures, lessons, a breif affair even. I think i have began and ended another chapter in life. This leads me to turn to words that I can't seem to utter or haven't an ear in the moment. Not that I always need to be heard. I digress...
I think I ought to change the title of this blog. I realize there is so much more than just my son and I, that is happening in the world, in my world.
I have much to catch up on, we shall see what comes.

The first time

So I promised myself I would write a blog, before I left California in Oct. of 2007. My friend S.S. suggested it and said that she wished she had done it when her oldest was still a baby. Well motherhood is a 24 hour job I have since discovered, and now that Iggy is 18 months I find a few moments here and there to do just such a thing. I am sure I will circle back to the last 2+ years, and maybe further. For now I hope to recount some special moments, and various events and thoughts.
Tonight I gave Iggy his first barrel of monkeys, he was instantly delighted and it never ceases to amaze me how the simplest toys win every time. We played with the monkeys for almost a half and hour happily, just after dinner. Dinner also was special, he had his first grilled cheese with tomato soup and used an adult spoon by himself. Surprisingly, he did really well, and loved it. Its so interesting watching a person learn about the world. He has taught me so much, and it is true that you appreciate more things about your parents when you become a parent as well. I still have a whole world ahead of me and it still seems like a lifetime since, I was not a mother. Life has changed so dramatically!
Just to catch you up a bit, I am now living in Colorado had have been for almost 2 years. My world in that time has turned upside down and fortunately, still, right side up too. Days of baby coo's and first foods, diapers and depression, crawling, walking, and some talking, whatever you can think of in between. Its constant and ever changing and beautiful . He recently learned how to take off his diaper, and pick his nose as well as a couple other bad habits within 48 hours time. He is a boy all right, but he's my boy. We spend much time simply cuddling with a book or for some good conversation. He's busy as can be though so these moments are indeed momentary at times. I have attached a recent photo, he loves pop cycles and it helps keep the teething pain slightly bearable.
Since I have been here I have reconnected with family and life long friends. I could not have made it, or survive without my mom, and family, as well as T, C, J, L, A, and K. More later....
