2010 is going to be great. You know how I know? Waking up (not the first time, or any middle times, but the last time) to tiny fingers sorta tickling my shoulder… rolling my head around and opening my eyes to see E’s upside-down smile, and his gorgeous eyes looking into mine. It’s just perfect.
Also, going to dinner last night with my hubby and baby and feeling absolutely affirmed in my family. Our bellies were full (this helps a lot with positive outlook), and I was feeding E at my breast. I didn’t have a privacy shawl or anything, but it was discreet anyway – we were in a booth, and no-one looking at us would have seen anything unless they were watching very carefully every second. Still, I know I breastfeed much more publicly than many women. (And not as publicly as many others.)
We were talking about that a little bit, and I said to Sean (yep! that’s his name), “So you don’t feel uncomfortable at all with me doing this here in the middle of Boston Pizza?”
He looked at me as if I were dumb, and said, “Of course not. Not even a little.” I knew from his face that he wasn’t fudging his answer, and I was so proud of him. I couldn’t stop the grin spreading across my face as I spoke my first thought: “And that’s why I married you!” That, among countless other reasons, of course.
Love is awesome. And this holiday season had lots of love throughout, so there you go. How auspicious!
Coming soon: verbal snapshots of Christmas 2009, Dilovely’s New Year’s Resolutiony Things, and much more.
(Sneak peek: First resolution is! not to neglect my blog, but not to neglect other writing either. So I’m thinking of blogging three times a week or so, and other days working on other literary pursuits. Though you never know… I may just blog the odd thought or two on in-between days…)
