As my darling daughter grew, I delved into the world of parenting: Attachment Parenting, Natural Parenting, caring loving "call it what you will" parenting!
I have a passion for cloth-diapering, babywearing, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, and generally "spoiling my baby"... And as I grew as a parent, I felted called to share my passion. Thus, This a blog was born. Not a just a food blog, a cloth-diapering blog, or a babywearing blog.... A life blog. Okay okay... a "Mommy Blog."
I want to encompass everything I love about the world of natural parenting, right along with the simple joys of daily life.
A slice of life... A Slice of Blyss.
So here we are.
I set up a blog. Then for months I have let this tiny square inch of Internet just sit, waiting for inspiration... For the right moment in my crazy, beautiful, silly, often chaotic life... To begin.
And this morning, at quarter after two AM it hit me: the ah-ha moment.
Am I sleep deprived? yes. Will there be typos & improper grammar? Probably.
I am no super mom... And this was no easy night. You see my beautiful 15 month daughter has her second ear infection ever, and she's teething to boot: not a happy camper.
Poor little love, keeps waking up fevery wanting to nurse... but her teething/ear ache are so bad that when she tries to latch on she just cries. Babywearing is the only consolation. Which means I have to get up with her lots. It's one of those nights, that being a parent is hard... When your babies tears break your heart, and you feel like there is nothing you can do to help.... but there never is nothing. There's always something... and tonight that something was a simple hand woven wrap, and the swaying of my hips. Knowing that you are all this little person needs, to feel safe, loved, & rested, is an amazing feeling. I'm so grateful. I feel incredibly blessed. Incredibly Tired... But blessed.
And that's it. My perfect little sleep deprived beginning.
Welcome to my life:
