Happy Little Things

I'll be the first to admit that it's ridiculous how much I love this little bag. I bought it from Etsy seller stuckinillinois. Since I'm stuck just north of her and the bag was all of $10 including shipping, and it was SO cute (isn't it, though?), I bought it. It arrived in one day.

What can I say? It's the happy little things that I try to focus on right now. Like the fact that M was not screaming and yelling after coming out of anesthesia after her surgery for ear tubes. The nurses had warned me that some children yell for a long time. M acted much as if she'd just woken from a nap. Groggy, sleepy, thirsty. The whole thing went off without a hitch, if you don't count that I was weepy watching them put her under the anesthesia. I don't.

Another happy thing is that I'm really liking these socks. Will have to crank out another pair for my mom, whose birthday I forgot. I am a terrible daughter. Well, I sent a card, sent a gift but then on the day of her birthday, I forgot to call. I suck. Thing is, I never forget birthdays.

Hopefully I can get these done quickly to get another pair started for my mom. Who will probably wonder why I knit her winter socks in the summertime. Sigh.

Happy Little Things. See what I mean?

I'm glad to hear your daughter (and you!) are doing well after the surgery, I'd been thinking of you guys. Speedy recovery!

I still say that your daughter deserves a pony. You are knitter, strike that, a little lamb; cute and functional. I like your Anastasias. Those are on my list after I knit a pair of basic toe-ups, I think I like knitting socks toe up, actually. And dont forget, a lamb--fun for the whole family.

I'm glad your daughter did well. I know kids get the ear tubes all the time, and they always do well with them. I also know that my friends who have had kids who have had the operation have been more traumatized then the kid. Congrats to YOU for making it through!
