“A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014.”
Poet: she dressed herself (in her printebebe smock top) and then accessorised with a butterfly brooch, the necklace she made with mama and a frou-frou headband that caught the light just so.
I’ve retreated this week, away from here and the online world in general. I find it’s a necessary step to take every now and then, to plant my feet firmly in the real world without explanation or apology. So far, August has been grey and very, very cold so whenever the sun comes out we head to the beach to soak up warmth and Vit D. Whilst Poet looks vibrant and happy in this photo (taken Friday) by Saturday morning she was miserable with conjunctivitis and went to bed last night complaining of a sore ear. Four weeks into pre-school and she’s most definitely boosting her immune system. I think I’ll keep her home this week; let her little body rest and rejuvenate, feed her noodles in chicken broth and cuddle up with her on the couch.
