I have so much to blog. My continuous blog voice that runs through my head all day long as I make and do things, is not making it’s way to my computer. I go to sit and type and nothing flows. Am I in a funk? Again? It’s during these times I wonder, why am I doing this? Why do I blog? But then I remember about my cyber buddies, my half finished projects that only get finished because I blog, the archive of my creativeness. Sometimes I have moments of despair and want to stop, throw it all away, but then I quickly snap out of it and give myself a good shaking. Why would I do something so insane? I love my blog and all that it’s given me. Does this happen to anyone else? I will continue on in the blog world, but it will be quiet and slow over the next several weeks. Please bare with me. And please forgive me for not replying to comments or making comments. I will be more of a lurker for a while.
So now you may be asking what I am doing with a baby doll? You may know that I have two boys and the doll thing has never happened here. I haven’t had a doll for over a decade or so. I just thought it was high time I brought a baby doll back into my life. No, not really. She’s my new baby for a breastfeeding class that I am taking. It’s a 3 college credit course on becoming a certified breastfeeding counselor. It will help me tremendously in dealing with the challenges many moms and babes face in the hospital. It’s six weeks long and the reading and studying is taking up loads of time. It’s only a small step towards reaching my goal of becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. But it’s one I’ll gladly take despite the strain it adds to my already full time job and family.
Now back to the doll. I bought her from a thrift store for $1. She was raggedy and dirty and I saved her. She got a good scrubing and a new little dress made from fabric scraps(I couldn’t let her go to school in rags now could I?). And my boys? They have taken very kindly to her. They hug her, put her to bed, try to feed her and throw her around a little.
