Domestic Goddess' and Mail Bliss
When Mairi was born I was over the moon to have a healthy baby and I had secretly wished for a little girl,I got my wish but I was determined to bring her up free form gender stereotypes.
But come 18 months old,she really did seem to prefer baby dolls was interested in social happenings and domestic stuff more so than anything else.
When Skye came along it happened for her even earlier I saw her at 10 months old nursing and playing with babies.
I guess the point is, before I had children(and my experience only being girls thus far)I would of never imagined posing for a picture like this,but the more I get into this game(motherhood and housewivery)I realise that it's a really important job we do and more so in my experience something fundamental to being a female whether we are mothers or not is the need to nurture.Whether it's looking after our children,partners,friends and/or animals.
So why not look spunky while we are at it!
Wow!That was a deep paragraph to show off the little pinny I found for Skye at the oppy.
Don't we look great?
Also received some lovely mail this week,some Ottobre mag back issues(they really are fab check them out)and a book 'The Kept Man'by Jami Attenberg from Nikkishell,which she sent to me after I commented on her review of the book on her blog.Thanks Nichola!
