show and tell...





This year Bliss decided he wanted to get me jewelry. I truly have such an amazing child. Anyhow I do not wear much by way of jewelry and have pretty specific tastes. I wanted him to be able to choose something I could wear all the time and he kept telling me to get the doily heart thing he saw in the Target display case. Um, no.

So when we went to Old Sac and had the boat trip we stopped by a favorite store and I saw this.

Bliss' middle name is Om. His name means "the creation of bliss". He also regularly chants his middle name as we try and do meditation and breath work together.

So his aunt (roomie) helped him "find" this pendant and he choose it and then he kept it a secret for over a week, which is not easy for him or any 5 year old.

The morning of my birthday he went out with his aunt and got me flowers and a coffee drink and came home and presented me with cards, flowers, coffee and this. I just love it. It has the Chakra stones and Bliss keeps telling me it will make me healthy, it will help us have a baby, and it will make me feel better.

I knew I wanted this for show and tell so I have been patient and waited to share about it too.

See he is helping mama grow too.


I also could not see Mel's Show and Tell post and not post my own ring story.

I have always told anyone who would listen that Bliss was every wish on every star and every coin tossed in every fountain throughout my entire life.

It is true, from childhood all I used to wish for was a child of my own. So when I came across this ring a few years back I absolutely had to have it.

The front has a star and reads "I made a wish" and the inside reads "and you came true".

I simply adore it.

The twins were my wishes too! I love that ring so much. Do you wear it every day?

The necklace is so beautiful. I love the stones hanging off of the Om. Aaah, but how can it compete with doily heart?

What a sweet story, I'm really happy for you.

I also wanted to introduce myself. I'm a single queer woman who's currently TTC and I found your blog awhile back while searching for other queer single parents' and parents-to-be's blogs. I've been reading your posts ever since and love the sense of community from knowing there are others out there who share the path I'm on. Thanks.
