Since this post was fairly popular a couple weeks ago, I thought I would bring it back to check on everyone...

5 things about me to get the ball rolling...

1) My daughter—my youngest and last child—is turning 1 at the end of the month and I’m feeling a melancholy about them growing up for the first time in the almost 4 years I’ve been a mother. It’s very mild, mind you, certainly not enough to compel me to reconsider my “two and through” stance on pregnancy, but still...


2) In spite of the melancholy I am still super excited about said birthday!

3) Our awesome local comic shop had a free comic day yesterday. We brought our kids: my son wore his superman shirt and cape and was SO EXCITED when “the real Batman” said he liked it.

4) I really need a summer wardrobe.

5) There is a massive bee that has been hovering outside our front window for several days. This happened last year too and I pretend it’s always the same creature. I’ve named her Stalker Bee.


La Petite Comtesse: so goodly grown. Anyone who gets the reference gets a gold star.
