we don't regret the decision. we just now have to make a new one.
seriously, can you get more judgmental?
1. i don't see it as "i was special" at that time, but that the time itself was special. if i seek to memorialize it in some way, it's none of your freakin' business to judge how i do that or why.
2. i am, and always have been, "in the moment" with my son. whether i buy an object t memorialize a special time does not indicate that i am not "in the moment" with him and his toddlerhood or at any other age beyond infancy.
as it is, i am in the process of buying objects for him to facilitate his toddlerhood. we are shopping for a riding toy for the house and planning out activities for him over the next two months. this is being budgeted. so, i'm well aware of his toddlerhood and thoroughly enjoying every minute of it TYVM.
So, why don't you just apologize?
aside from it all, i have decided to not buy an object to memorialize that special time, but i have connected my artist friend with my homebirthing connections here.
but, i am still considering buying a fruit bowl from her.
and, i can't decide between the colombian pot
or the le creuset one. probably le creuset, anyway.
i do take to flights of fancy.
