Busy Being Busy

Well, its been a couple of weeks since I last blogged, and I’ve been quite busy. I’ve got a few crafty type things on the go or on the list so generally I’m busy, busy! On the plus side it means that I’m able to ‘do something’ in a day instead of sometimes feeling stressed by always being the Attachhed Parent…maybe the scales are finally starting to tip into balance…?

We have received our beautiful Didymos Ginkgo wrap after finally paying it up. Wrapping is a bit of an art, its all about getting the tensioning right and we really need to practise. As ever, doing anything with a small person who has extra needs is not straightforward. She likes to have her arms out but needs a lot of support around her back so many carries aren’t quite right. But we’ll get there. We also have a Melkaj mei tai on the way as our Ellaroo is outgrown, apparently its gorgeous and I can’t wait to see it. I love mei tai’s and there are some amazing wrap conversions out there, I think the wrap style straps which spread open are just brilliant and combine the best of both the wrap and mei tai features and I imagine they are especially supportive.

So, aside from crafting and carriers, ponies seem to be featuring more and more in our day and we are enjoying the increased contact. There is a lot of work to do with them for the future, but instead of feeling overwhelmed, I’m really looking forward to it all. I’m starting to feel more like me!

      Thanks Jane, yes she loves camera, I let her take self portraits which is great fun and she is fascinated that the zoom brings thing closer that she wouldn’t otherwise be able to see. When she’s a bit more able we will be buying her a camera of her own 🙂 and we have already had shouting this morning to stroke the ponies!!
