A New York Sprinkle

I was in the city last weekend for a little “sprinkle” for my friend, who is expecting Baby Girl #2.  A weekend away was a much-needed break after the endless snow day insanity we had going on here the last few weeks.  I always love being around my kids, but there is such a thing as TOO MUCH togetherness.

I drove up on Friday morning — an easy and relatively stress-free 4-hour drive.  It is a very different experience driving up alone in Matt’s little Saab than making that same haul with four kids in my minivan. 

The celebration for this new little baby-on-the-way was so lovely.  Full of tiny dresses and sweet stuffed animals and really, really delicious cupcakes.  And diapers so small I can’t believe any of my children ever, ever fit into anything that little.

These little moccasins make my ovaries hurt (although not enough to actually entertain the thought of having more children).  Pink and gold and soft handmade leather from a new-to-me company called Freshly Picked.  They are just so sweet. 

Over the weekend, I really did indulge and relax.  I got my hair washed and blown out, my make-up done, AND a shoulder massage on Friday afternoon.   Unprecedented.  After a weekend like that, I always think that I really need to do that stuff more.  It’s slightly more difficult, though, to justify a blow-out on the weekends here when my biggest event is a little league baseball game.  A shoulder massage might be even MORE justified though…I’ll have to look into my options for that.

I loved seeing my friends, hanging out in the city, and helping get ready for the newest little girl about to join my lovely circle. Baby girls are such a great excuse to celebrate and indulge, aren’t they?
