Fenway Pahk

How I love thee!! A hotdog (or a fat, juicy brat), garlic fries and ice-cold beer on a warm summer night…cheering on your favorite team. The BoSox, favorite team as an adult, is playing the Orioles, my childhood favorite (and nostalic adult fave) at Fenway right now! I think I have to ditch work for now and go watch it. Sweetie has it on HD…

“I’ve got all I need…my le•top hat, my rain boots and my bb (blanket).”

“I’ve got all I need…my le•top hat, my rain boots and my bb (blanket).”

I have, ahem, some difficulty putting clothes on my daughter, Lilah. Considering her modeling “gigs” for our beautiful le•top and rabbitmoon children’s fashions, you’d think she’d be a budding fashionista, but, nope. She likes wearing nothing, or, when I “let” her choose, she comes up with ensembles such as this! It’s beyond ironic that I work for a children’s clothing company and my only child has clothing issues. On the other end of the spectrum, when she loves something, I can’t get her to take the clothes off, even though it is a major triumph when it’s an outfit I really wanted her to wear. I often wonder if I’m the only one who has such issues with clothing a young child. It’d be really fun to see photos of “interesting” ensembles that kids put together when they’re allowed to do so.

Miranda holding Paulo (and needing a few tips on holding up baby's head!)

Miranda holding Paulo (and needing a few tips on holding up baby's head!) decked out in their Easter best.

I had to ask Jamee something the other day (I know, I know! she’s on maternity leave…but I can’t help it!), and of course she made some time for me. She also gave me this gem of an email reply when I asked her how things are going with her new baby boy:

“He’s asleep right now, and I’m trying to pay bills and clean up my inbox. My eyes keep closing. But, to answer your question about how I’m adjusting, I didn’t think I’d be so in love with another child. I was hoping for a girl (because Miranda wanted a girl), but now I can’t imagine not having a little boy. Even Miranda is in love with him. She’s decided to keep him after all. She’s just checked on him twice in the last 3 minutes. So cute! He is adorable, and I just love holding him, and smelling him, and looking at him, and am in amazement at how beautiful he is.”

This reminds me, yet again, of how much a mom’s love, patience, nurturing, concern and care has the power to rule/change the world. It also leaves me in complete awe (not to mention a few tears) and inspires me to say: To all you hard-working and loving moms, dads and grandparents out there, I sincerely thank you, because you are raising the generation of people who’ll be running the world, making decisions (big and small) and taking care of my generation of peeps! Your strength, kindness, love and thoughtful guidance in raising healthy and emotionally strong children benefit ALL of us. Thank you.
