I know I've been slacking on my blog a little... I've had some family come to town for a visit, I'm trying to catch up on some orders, I'm working on stocking my new CSC website, and I'm writing 2 new patterns. Good luck keeping up with the household chores, right?
Anyway... I got really excited this evening over something kinda silly. You know when you dream of having kids you usually think about their first words or what color hair they'll have when they're born... Well, today I was helping my 3-year-old in the shower & I noticed she has a couple of little freckles by her armpit. It made me smile! *I* have freckles, and it makes me super excited when I notice that my kids are getting them. If you know me, you know that my kids look like their dad (blonde hair, light eyes) and every little bit of "me" that they get makes me super giddy.
A couple other traits my kids have inherited from ME: My son is "pigeon-toed" and has freckles on his nose. My daughter has "thunder thighs"(YES, that's genetic!) and she bites her nails. OK, that last one isn't so cool, but she still got it from me. :)
If baby #3 (it's a BOY, by the way) comes out with brown hair, you'll hear me shouting & jumping for joy from 3 states over. I'm not kidding. ;)
