Devil in Disguise

This is the face of an angel, right? Wrong. My mom always told me that the devil will come as an angel of light. Now I know what she was talking about. Livy is the love of my life, the sharpened tip of my #2 pencil,the icing on the cake of my world. She makes me laugh, she makes me angry, she makes me cry bitter and salty tears. I am a mom. And even three years since her birth, since I first laid eyes on her newborn face flushed with new life, I am still in awe of this. I sit some days in disbelief at the awesome responsibility I have unwittedly undertaken.

I'm starting this blog to record this odd and wonderful odyssey being a mother to this tiny human. Because if I didn't record it as it happened, she probably wouldn't believe the stories I tell her when she's grown.

Words to "Liv" By


I'm not coming to your birthday!, never not again!
You ruined my whole day/life!
Remember we did that, tomorrow?
You're not being my best friend anymore! (said very quickly)
