me and Alice's mom
Yes, I'm now a mom and I live vicariously through my baby. However, you should know that I don't report Alice's bowel movements on my facebook profile everyday (do you also have "friends" who do stuff like that???).
When I got pregnant, I told myself that I would still be "me" and not only "Alice's mom". Well, it is not that obvious....especially when you have so much fun writing a motherhood blog. It is not necessarily a bad thing. It is just that sometimes I ask myself what I was doing before I got Alice!!! Very strange feeling. I think that I became so passionate about being a mother that I put aside my "other life".
Well, I decided to bring back a bit of the "old" Claudia once in a while on this blog. I hope that you don't mind!
So, this weekend I did a little bit of eco-friendly sewing and I'm very happy with the result. I had a bunny t-shirt (that I loved very much...maybe a bit too much) that was very beat up. It now lives in my living room...as a cushion. And since my fabric stash is very limited I used an old tea towel from my kitchen (for the back of the cushion)!
Yep, I think that I can easily be "me" and "Alice's mom" at the same time!

anneemall: What you wrote makes so much sense! Wow, thank you!
daniela: We have H&M in Montreal but the one downtown doesn't have baby clothes. Maybe if I get a ride to one of those big shopping centers I can find an H&M with that collection...that would be pretty cool!
