Making Peace With the Ugly.


I'm a snob, I'll admit.

I hate plastic baby crap in my house.

I hate it for environmental reasons. I hate it for philosophical reasons. I hate it for aesthetic reasons.

We have a few plastic pieces in our house, but usually if anything needs a battery, lights up and makes heads to my In-law's house ASAP.

My Mother bought a Saucer at a Consignment Shop or Yard Sale for Nye-Nye when she was 3 months or so.

It's ugly. Takes up a lot of room. But you know what?

She LOVED it.

And, I made peace with it.

Now, it's our Anala-Bala Bears' turn.

And, I think she may love it even more than her Big Sissy did at the same age.

It's been a great lesson in how Motherhood forces you to let go of all those Expectations on How-You-Are-Going-To-Mother...

  1. Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. Lucky I have a basement to store it in until the next one!
