One Week Before Xmas


If you worked at my office you'd have a piece of my mocha-almond or cranberry (chocolate-dipped) biscotti right now. To which there is no recipe. Its all in my head. ...like many things...
Well, having a baby changes your life entirely, so I have heard over and over again. Yes, I get it. None of these changes are unwelcome.
Except one.
The hard top is on the Jeep.
Since the day we bought it, the ragtop has been my best friend. And the hard top we removed that same day has been ruminating somewhere on the farm. Last night I finally said goodbye to the freedom of zippered windows, flapping roofs, icy cold morning drives, and said hello to my first concession of motherhood. Automobile comfort and safety.
They still won't get me to give up my heels!

Yummy!! I love to bake biscotti too. Bummer about the hard top - but heck, the Jeep is still cool!!!

The hard top doesn't have to be permanent. Like everything else with parenting, it all evolves and changes as you go along.

Yuuummmmm, biscoooootti.

I'm curious to see how hubby deals with "Mini + car seat = no space for mommy".

Well, you'll only need it on there for what, six or seven years? *grin*

It's still cool - at least you're not trading it in for a minivan...
