Things I Did and Did Not Do Today

It has been such a very long time since I posted here with any sort of consistency. I would like to try to remedy that, and first, I thought I would shed some light as to why I’ve been busy.

Don’t call it a comeback.

Things I did today:

  1. I woke up at 6am with a 13-month-old child who is cutting his molars. (god help us both).
  2. I baked my first homemade pumpkin pie, from scratch, and the crust was slightly overdone but the pie is perfect.
  3. I toasted fresh pumpkin seeds.
  4. I made pumpkin purée for my little love. He ate all of two bites before a tantrum that ended the meal.
  5. I nursed my wild, curious, oh-so-swift son after he climbed to the top of his stroller and promptly tipped it over onto his face earning his first black eye.
  6. I ate all of the previously mentioned pumpkin seeds.

Things I did not do today:

  1. I did not cry.
  2. I did not eat the entire pie.

And for that I will call today a win.

Happy Fall! 🎃🍂🍁🌾

  1. Ellie, So glad to find the link to your writing on FB. Thanks. Your voice on the page is compelling and your prose rings with the magic of poetry. Most moms know & understand the joy and all consuming attention involved in the care of a new loved one. As hard as it is to believe at the moment, it IS just a moment in time (so you dive in with that, too- as you obviously have) . . . But how wonderful that you have picked the ‘pen’ back up. I look forward to returning regularly to read 😍
    As my daddy always told me, ‘keep up the good work.’
