Today is the first day in a very long time that I’ve had the chance to sit down and actually… sit. Not sit and formulate and plan and organize. Just. sit.
I’m taking a break. After the past few weeks, my show has opened, my son has had his birthday party (he’s 5!). This is my mid-holiday season rest period, my exhale. Tomorrow, the Christmas-Hanukkah preparation begins. Christmas cards, Holiday pictures, baking, decorations. I love it all, but there’s been a lot of stress in my everyday, lately. Stress, let’s just leave it at that.
Yesterday, we had my little man’s birthday party. Six boys tearing up my house, having a grand, old space-themed time!! Then I had to run out and do a show for two hours. Oh, I earned my ice cream, thank you very much.
I’ve noticed I’ve been reflecting a lot on the past 5 years. Looking at old pictures, watching old clips of my little man go from a chubby little baby to a lanky big boy and it brings tears to my eyes.
He’s my heart. And going through the stress of the holidays, I’ll take it. Because watching my boy smile and say to everyone, “Merry Christmas!” as he helps mommy frost cookies, is everything to me.
