Violet surrounded by her friends at her birthday party. Remind me never to invite that many 5 year olds to my house.....
So this is my last post. I am closing up shop after 5 plus years. I started this blog when Vi was but a pea in my belly, a time when I had so much to say and no one around except for Andrew that I really wanted to say it to. Anymore I don't get here to tell you about our lives and then I feel guilty, rushed and so on.... I want to devote more time to documenting Violet's life on paper, with her art and her words. I am going to continue to take pictures so I opened a Flickr site so that you can see pictures of things that are important to me including Violet when she holds still long enough for me to get a photograph. And if I ever decide that blogging is an avenue I want to pursue again you will be the first to know.
Thanks for coming here to read my words. It has meant very much to me. I will leave you with a short story.
Violet appeared at my bedside early this morning at 4:30AM. She, I don't want to cuddle with my dog anymore, I am too shy. Me, Okay Violet. Why don't you put the dog on the floor by your bed and cuddle with another animal? Did I really think that was going to work?
She, But Mom, I don't want to cuddle with another animal I want to cuddle with you.
Me, Okay babe. I'll be right there.
