Dear Baby Coco


Dear Baby Coco,

Tonight I had the final night of my show. I am so proud of myself for doing something just for me. You'll understand this when you are a mother, but sometimes it's hard to put yourself first. I find myself guilty or trying to shrink myself in order to fit everything in.

But tonight I was with all the other mothers, all of us away from our children, telling our stories, feeling like we were powerful within ourselves. Tonight we were women and mothers. Hero mothers really. Tonight we admitted that it was okay to let ourselves have this moment without you, all the while knowing one day, we would tell you all about it.

Oh Coco, being a woman, and a mother is tough stuff. Wouldn't have it any other way though.

PS you can put Hero Mother, or wheel chair, into the search area and see what I have been performing these two weeks.

CONGRATS on your show....and feeling powerful! We all forget about ourselves in the midst of motherhood...and have to make an effort to find our way back. I enjoy your blog....thanks for sharing!

Thanks for sharing the great news! I vote for the pink and orange flamenco invite...and YES of course I will replenish Coco's closet with Lilly this spring. I'll remind you when the sale gets closer. We're still freezing here on the east coast. I hope Landon is healing well. xo, T
