Things We Keep Hidden
....I’ve been thinking about how many sides/facets we, as mothers, keep hidden-from ourselves and the world. What parts of ourselves (creative or otherwise) do we give up for other people-our kids in particular?What have you pushed aside, creative or otherwise?
From Imperfect Parent Blog:
Earlier this month, there was a lot of (ahem) buzz about Nutmeg and kids getting high off it. Some even suggesting locking up your spice cabinet. Seems a little ridiculous and extremist to me. I mean, if you’re going to lock up the nutmeg, might as well lock up your entire kitchen because, dear god, there are an enormous amount of things to get high off of!
Christmas: A Time of Cheer, Santa and Horrifying TV Specials
It is the week of Christmas. Things are starting to get a little hectic around here. We have our extremely fake, blue-tinseled, non-organic, non-eco-friendly, pre-lit tree up. A string of Chrismas lights are aglow along the door frame. Our house is full of Christmas cheer. There are some presents under the tree-though not to be opened till Christmas Day! I even made two batches of Nutmeg Cookies. We ate some, they were very tasty, and we didn’t get high.
But did you know that Christmas time is full of danger and horrifying TV specials???!
