100 Things To Do In 2012 {my 2012 Dreaming Extravaganza}

by Leonie Dawson on January 28, 2012

Hola gorgeous Goddesses…

Every year I have a Dreaming Extravaganza in our backyard.

It started here, with the very first workbook and a pregnant belly in our little courtyard backyard in the city:

And a year later it was with mermaid hair and a sweet little 9 month old baby who mostly just chewed on my pens before wanting to breastfeed again in our tropical paradise that we’d just started planting in:

And this year, it was done in sprints with short hair that I’m oh-so-in-love-with & an incredible toddler in our backyard in tropical paradise that is slowly but surely becoming a sanctuary:

Imagonnabe honest here – I only managed to jot down a few more things onto my list before Ostara decided she really REALLY needed to “help”…

Seriously though.

Look how ridunkulously cute she is:

AAAH. THE CUTE!

Yeah. I know. She totally IS amazing.

Ostara of the Light.

The one I have been waiting for.

Incase you were wondering, I really really love that button.

Even when I’m going a wee bit bonkerdoodles from attempting to do anything at all.

Mamas out there who understand the nature of that kind of bonkledoodlery, raise your hand.

*RAISE BOTH HANDS*

I remember when we were pregnant,

and this doctor smiled this fond little smile,

and said

“Welcome to the cutest little time-consumers you will ever know.”

True story, mate.

True story.

It’s a constant balancing act to work out creative ways for all of us (me, my husband and her) to get what we need.

Right now, she’s with her Daddy-o while I’m out in the Creative Caravan tip-tapping this love letter away to you.

I’m typing away as quickly as I can because my time is almost up, and my love needs to finish a university assignment.

We are a tag-team of parenting duties.

“I’M IN!” “I’M OUT!”

So he can get the time he needs. I can get the time I need.

And she can get the time she needs.

And we can all do it together.

She is radiant like the sun.

Full burst.

I remember when we were pregnant, we would muse about what star sign she’d be – either Pisces or Aries.

My love and I are both watery, intense Scorpios.

And we decided that it would be better for all our sakes if she wasn’t Piscean – otherwise we’d spend all time crying over our hurt feelings together and our house would be an ocean of emotion. And it would be better for her to be a strong, sure-of-herself Arian goddess to contend with two always-right Scorpions.

So that’s what we got.

This incredible, fun-loving, Arian goddess with a HUGE energy all of her own.

And it couldn’t have been any other way.

She’s the kid we were born to have.

She (and each other) are our destiny.

Some days it’s a destiny that’s easy to soak into.

Some days it’s a destiny that makes you grow.

But still:

Destiny.

This year’s Dreaming Extravaganza happened under a wet season sky.

By the end, Ostara was running around naked

and I was running back inside with the laptop out of the looming rain

then running back out to chase a giggling toddler inside before the thunder started.

I love this land so very much.

 

You know, this is supposed to be a Dreaming Extravaganza! I’ve already shared about my Word for this Year.
