I'm feeling decidedly un-motherly today. At least, unmotherly in the fact that all of the women on my mom's groups are posting photos of their Pinterest-worthy birthday parties. The wee boy will be one in less than two weeks, and, despite my intentions, I've got nothing planned.
Deep down, I understand that cupcakes that match bunting (I didn't even know what bunting was until very recently) that match invitations (like, not an evite, but actual printed invitations!!) that match hats that match goody bags that match the tutu around the birthday boy's high chair ... well, that they aren't at all what defines me as a mother. But still ... I feel like my family expects a bit more than some cucumber sandwiches and Four Roses.
Then again, that actually sounds like a pretty good birthday party.
Hmmmm, maybe we ought to actually set a date and attempt a party.
Here are some recent pics taken by a good friend while we were in Baltimore.

Pinterest Parties, Motherhood, and some cute pictures.

I'm a Kentucky singer-songwriter, mom to a 3-year-old and a baby, car-free, vegetarian-type who likes traveling, interesting facts, castles, novels, funny people, swimming, home-birth, science, eating and writing. I haven't slept through the night in, like, 4 years, so I'm kinda wacky these days. I write about traveling with kiddos, baking, and how to balance self-employment and artistry with parenting.
