I made Sidney a little girlfriend. She is made of a very soft, fuzzy and nubbly olive material with white and dark fleks in it. She cheered me up on Saturday when, for various reasons, I was having a bad blog moment – feeling like maybe this thing is making me and my family too exposed to the world, maybe I should delete it all. Having a public diary, even just one about crafty stuff and mom stuff like this, is scary sometimes and it tends to hit me all of a sudden. Charlie gave me an excellent comforting talk and several big hugs and I’m still here, but a bit shakey feeling.
