Hitting My Limit

Thanksgiving was, overall, a success. We still have four house guests, but that’s scheduled to go down to one in a few hours. The last one is my mom, and she hardly counts as she can usually be relied on to go about her business. Later today we’re going to take advantage of her presence to go to a matinee — my first theater movie in 14 months. I don’t care what we see provided it is not a) experimental b) intended to teach me or c) intended to make me a better person. Those rules were actually already in place before Alden was born.

Amidst all the hullabaloo of planning the holidays (I am more than half way done with Christmas shopping. I. Am. Awesome.), I also managed to throw a fake christening for Alden. You see, we have a family christening gown that is just about 100 years old. It is three layers of gorgeous lace and lawn with a sweet crochet cap. I asked that the dress be sent to me, thinking maybe it would be the thing that would push us over into joining a church. Didn’t work. And yet, I could see he would soon outgrow it. So finally we just dressed him up and took a bunch of pictures.

  3. The fact that he can still look like such a personable little scamp while swathed in antique lace is probably a testament to excellent parenting. 🙂
