Today, my 1 year old, who is nearly two, went to bed early. For anyone who simply does not understand the struggle of a toddler who does not sleep, here is a little glimpse:
When said tiny human does happen to fall asleep it feels like this:
So, with that being said, tonight felt like I was Dobby, who had just been given a sock. (Also, my home may look as if there is not a house elf living here anymore, but that is entirely beside the point.) Because of this, I have been able to watch two whole episodes of Once Upon A Time and knit my first attempt at a Slytherin beanie! This may not seem like much, but for someone who always feels busy every hour of the day, this is a huge accomplishment.
With Christmas coming closer, I am beginning the task of making all of the gifts homemade this year, as I had previously decided I would. Although it will take longer, knitting and such is quite therapeutic for me. It helps me channel my pottery demolishing urges upon becoming extremely ticked off. Really, I’m not only doing this for me, but for all the pottery that was not made simply to be broken. It’s a win-win. 🙂
Ps. Happy International Coffee Day!
