Leon’s first Sith Christmas!
How handsome is my hunny bunny!? Seriously, how did he come from our genes. His grandma got his own cookie today since his cousin Lilly got one. He loved it! Especially the chocolate hat. And he didn’t even bounce off the walls, we just sat in the library with his dad and played with Christmas ornaments and cuddled. It was lovely. :)
"Tha older sum ppl gt tha ignoranter they gt. Ik thts nt a word but ppl do say tht lol."
“Welp due 2 tha weather im hm 3pm on a fri snuggled on my pillowtops watchn tha encore channel. Blessd I made it hm safe. its a sheet of ice out thr. Praying evry1 has a safe journey. Tgif.”
Ugh, I seriously think less of people when they do this. Facebook has spell check. But she is nice and isn’t actually the caregiver for Leon’s age group, so oh well.
Daffodil: What’s the most thoughtful present you’ve ever received?
The first Christmas Miles and I spent together, he brought me a really nice set of paint brushes. He always takes interest in my art even if I never share it with anyone else.
Rose: Are you currently in love with someone?
Yes, my husband.
Amsonia: Would you ever become a vegan?
I was, for almost six years (with a few cheats), but I just love chicken nuggets. It wasn’t for animal rights reasons, it was just wanting to be healthier and chicken and eggs is pretty much the only animal products I used to eat.
Peony: What’s your favorite hot beverage?
Tulip: For your birthday, what kind of cake do you ask for?
Red velvet, mostly because it’s my dad’s favorite.
Myrtle: Do you like going on airplanes?
I’ve never been and I really want to.
Hibiscus: Did you ever play an instrument? If so what?
Piano, and mini-organ in elementary. Clarinet, and flute in middle-high school. Tried to learn guitar but failed. I can play one song on bass guitar.
Zinnia: Who was your best friend when you were six years old?
Stacy. We roleplayed as grownups in a huge years-long plot with villians and everything. We watched every I love Lucy episode ever made. She lived two doors down. She was the first girl I ever had a crush on as we got older. She abandoned me when I was 15 because she fell in love with a girl who introduced her to smoking, shoplifting, etc. I got arrested with Stacy once for shoplifting, because I wanted to stay her friend but it was right before we stopped being friends.
Poppy: What color was your childhood home?
White with gray trim.
Hydrangea: Starbucks order?
Vanilla soy latte.
Violet: Do you like where you’re from?
I didn’t as a kid, but I do now.
Locust: What was your favorite book as a child?
Harry Potter series.
Rhododendron: What’s the scariest dream you’ve ever had?
I’m at my grandparents. It’s dark. I see a ghost parade with a faceless bride and groom but they disappear as they hit the graveyard down the street. It gets really quiet, then I see monstrous dogs coming from the fields. I run into the barn, but it’s a slaughterhouse now, and one of the dogs is still chasing me. I run out, past the other barns, which have dark towers on them now. I run into the back field and I trip. I wake up right before the dog claws into my back. I’ve had this recurring dream since I was 11.
Queen Anne’s Lace: Would you rather carve pumpkins or wrap presents?
Magnolia: Favorite kind of candy?
Anything with peanut butter in it.
Aster: Would you rather be cold or hot?
Marigold: Do you listen to what’s on the radio?
Yes. That’s the only way I get my music anymore.. car radio and Pandora. I don’t listen to cds anymore, unless I’m in a sour mood, then it’s either Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (Smashing Pumpkins) or Defense of the Genre (Say Anything).
Heliconia: Do you like when it rains?
Azalea: What’s a movie you cried while watching?
I cry a lot during movies. Deathly Hallows Pt 2 was so tough, I’ve never watched it again.
Dandelion: Do you think you’re important?
To myself, my son, my husband, my family.. yes. In general, no.
|Daisy:||How old were you when you had your first kiss?|
|15 years old, in the hallway of my school.|
|Carnation:||If I handed you a concert ticket right now, who would you want to be the performer?|
|Say Anything or One Republic.|
|Jasmine:||What color looks best on you?|
|No clue.. I like greens, purples and greys, though.|
|foxglove:||Name three facts about your family?|
|1. Miles and I have been together for six years, married for almost four, and have been parents for ten months.|
|2. We got our cats because I told my husband I wanted either a baby or cats, so he brought me three cats, then I ended up pregnant the next year anyway.|
|3. We are packrats like crazy.|
|Allium:||What's the best thing you can cook?|
|Tomato-based soups, stews. Chili. Miles' favorite dish is my Irish Beef stew made with Guinness.|
|Orange Blossom:||If you could pick the gender and appearance of your child, would you?|
|No. I would love to pick the gender because we are only going to have one more child, and I'm desperate for it to be a girl, but at the same time, I would always think about what the child would be like if I left it up to nature, so I wouldn't.|
|Calla Lily:||If you died right now, what song would you want to play at your funeral?|
|"Muzzle" Smashing Pumpkins|
|Poinsettia:||Favorite holiday dish?|
|Oxlip:||Would you ever get into a long distance relationship?|
|No. I would be too disconnected.|
|Primrose:||Favorite kind of soup?|
|Thick cheesy broccoli soup.|
December 5th, Leon turned 10 months old. I can’t believe how close he is to one years old. It doesn’t seem like it’s been almost a year since I felt him move inside me.
- I braved the attic ladder and got the tree down without dying.
- I had to use Leon’s full name when he got in trouble. He just laughed in my face.
- I don’t like Christmas, but I like filling the stockings and making ornaments with Leon. I want to have traditions for him to grow up with.
- The things I hate worst from Christmas are the music, and the poinsettias, since I’m allergic and all over my work at this time of year.
