My baby is in school. His first day ever. It’s surreal. I’m so happy I have my partners here or I’d probably be sobbing uncontrollably. It helps that Minion was so EXCITED about school instead of scared or shy, but still…emotional mom feels.
MINION’S FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN! *tears*
I am so happy that Enigma joined us for such a great first day. Kiddo had a BLAST! Today is now day 3 and each day he is coming home with the best stories and so much excitement! I am very happy he is having so much fun! Minion is also super proud of himself, and totally loves his First day Clothes that he picked out.
Such a big day!
im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
This! This this this!
okay but a story about an asexual pirate who gets made fun of by the crew until he saves all of them from sirens
A pirate for the adventure, not the booty
oh my gosh i want that on a bumper sticker
Trying to pilot a ship here. Thanks.
IT GOT BETTER
Kiddo starts Kindergarden tomorrow. Trio support tonight tonight. We are watching Horror movies and I’m trying to keep it together. Emotional mom is emotional. #polyfamily #polyamory #polylife
I would also like to add because its cute and adorable.
Every year there is a Zombie Pub Crawl in Portland right around my birthday and so I invite lots of friends and we call this my “birthday event” *here are some photos from the last couple years*
This year as a Trio we have decided to go with a “Undead Carnival” theme and I think several of our friends will be joining us! I am SO excited its going to be a HUGE group this year!!
Also in other costume and future adventures news, Minion wants to be Batman for Halloween so I am going to either be a Victorian style Fem version of The Riddler or Mr(Ms) Freeze, the boys still haven’t decided if they are going to go Batman or Super Hero theme with us or not yet but I have some costumes on the horizon!! Plus we have pumpkin patch adventures, haunted trails, corn mazes, trick or treating and a beach trip with my Inlaws coming up! Lots of fun things!!
So lots has been going on in our world but we are finally finding a sense of balance.
First off, MOVING SUCKS. Ugh. I refuse to move anywhere else unless its into a house again. lol during the entire 10 days or so of our move it was in the 85-100 degree range and I am just miserable in the heat. But we got it all done and now Glowbug, Minion and I are in a new place.
Almost immediately after we moved in we went to staff a 4 day Anime convention and lived in a plush hotel room for 5 days *Enigma included* (no complaints there!) I posted several photos from our Kumoricon weekend and we had a total blast.
This past week has been a decompression week for us all *much needed* lots of movie watching, cleaning, and prepping for Minion starting Kindergarten TOMORROW!
Glowbug’s best friend came over yesterday for a much needed “Bro date video game” day and today he kidnapped him to go to our local Soccer (Timbers) match then to another mutual friend’s Birthday Party. Glowbug has needed this so I am really happy it could happen.
Enigma just called me asking if it would be “appropriate” or “okay” if he came over tonight so that he could be part of Minion’s first day of Kindergarten tomorrow and my heart just melted into a puddle. Apparently Enigma is as stupidly excited, nervous, and emotional as Glowbug and I and I find it beyond adorable that he wants to be here tomorrow too. Of course Glowbug and I said yes. I have so many feels I could explode, I am so proud of my little guy. His Kindergarden teacher told Glowbug and I that he is 100% ready for school and coming in more academically ready than most, which is always good to hear as he never went to Preschool and I have done all of his education prepping via flashcards and workbooks and other educational means.
I start school (after EIGHT years) on the 29th!! So I am excited as well! Its going to be an interesting Fall for sure! Lots of adjusting and change but having 2 solid relationships makes it sure feel a lot less intimidating. Im lucky to have the support system I have and I look forward SO much to October as its my Birthday Month AND Halloween (My favorite holiday!!)
Kumoricon day 4 (and some extras):
This was the first year Kumorcon was a Fri-Mon convention (normally its Sat-Mon) so all of us staffers were seriously exhausted by day 4. (Especially as Glowbug, Enigma and I were running the Guests of Honor Green Room. Running the open bar for the voice actors and band members till 3 am then waking up for breakfast each morning to feed them at 8…it takes its toll. SO much fun though!) Day 4 was a short day and we spent most of the time cleaning up, I modeled for the second Art of Obi tying panel but forgot to take photos :(
My only con purchase was the Smaug Fan Art necklace above from The Gorgonist :)
Also pictured above are some of the hillarious Staff buttons, I missed the one that says “I Survived” (inside joke as this was the first 4 day Kumoricon)
The last 4 photos are various characters that Minion loved :)
Kumoricon Day 3:
This was our favorite day! I spent most of the day wandering around with Minion while he took photos with his favorite characters. He was Tiny Bilbo and I was Smaug. We spent HOURS being stopped for photos and he loved posing for each one (he must have killed me 4 dozen times in photos haha!) Glowbug and Enigma were much busier this day so I got little breaks with each one but we rarely had a moment where we all were together. Minion and I did get the chance to have professional photos taken in this cosplay and I can’t wait to see them!!!
It was really nice that my Staff position allowed for me to still be a Mom during the convention. Minion had the time of his life running around and seeing all the people. We didn’t go to many panels or anything, we weren’t on strict timelines and it was just nice to wander and explore.
