For those of you planning to attend my trunk show this week, I won’t be able to make it! I have to cancel due to an abundance of orders and no inventory to show… for this I am grateful! A HUGE thank you to all of you who have ordered jewelry and tees this season.

I also want to thank all of you for your awesome support on this issue of Ben’s eating. I have been dealing with his weight for most of his life and the texture thing for several months now. I am always so heartened by your wise and gentle responses. Issues like feeding your child can be mighty sensitive and I am always so grateful that you are all intuitive enough to know what I need. Every time one of you said, “My son was like that! or He’ll eat when he’s hungry! or He’s fine! Let him take his time. He can eat pureed food for the next 10 years!” it made me tear up with relief and my shoulders drop about three feet. I don’t imagine it will take Ben too long to figure this out, but I truly appreciate how much space you all give me and him.

I noticed the same thing with breastfeeding. I appreciated the people in my life that gave me permission not to breastfeed, that told me he would be healthy and fine either way. This helped to be able to choose not from a place of fear, but from a more empowered place.

You really are a wise bunch.
