Life with 'song and Elayna, minus Elayna

Mommy & Elayna 2010
An e-mail to my daughter, whose plane is currently taxiing to the gate in Newark:



Has she no mother to buy pants for her? Or a shirt, even? Is she not a millionaire at this point? How can she not afford a t-shirt and a sandwich?

Can Taylor Momsen crash in your room while you're in Israel so I can wash her face and feed her mac & cheese and teach her about pants?

Related: I miss her like crazy. Tomorrow will be worse because it will be 3:00 and she will not walk through the door. I managed to keep my shit together until she got on the plane, at least; they let us go through security with her and we mocked the crappy books in Borders and went "ooh" at a few good ones, and that was a good distraction.

Also, I lent her my first lace shawl; the pattern is called Travelling Woman, and I named the shawl itself Lady Vagabond. Fitting.

I love the idea of you "teaching her about pants." That is a lovely visual.

Also, you appear to be handling yourself with remarkable grace and strength. I'd be a jibbering, incoherent mess if I put my kid on a plane to anywhere! Good job staying strong, and think of the wonderful adventures and stories she will bring home! :) *comforts you*

Good lawd. I've never heard of this Taylor Momsen girl, but she looks like she's a little, um... batshit? On something? I don't even know.

Seriously. I will give her a pair of my pants if that's what it takes.

I'm sorry you are Elayna-less right now. I'm sure she misses you too. But I'm sure the time will fly for both of you while she has fabulous adventures in Israel, and before you know it she'll be home! (ta-da?)

OMG, that is Cindy-Lou Who. Wrong wrong wrong!

She looks like she's trying very hard to be Lady Gaga. Without the Lady aspect OR the Gaga aspect.

Why is no one talking about the fact that she is wearing a pillowcase?
24th-Jun-2010 01:55 am (UTC)
Well, at least the pillowcase shows willing? I mean, she appears willing to embrace the concept of "cloth covers the upper body", even if she's shaky on the implementation.

I'd say education about the concept of pants is probably more urgent. Then we can refine the definition of "shirt".

I think perhaps she's a lost house elf. That would explain the pillowcase 'shirt' and general lack of proper attire.

Somebody give her clothes. Please.

What did you think about making the Traveling Woman? How would you rank it, with regards to difficulty? I'm interested in making it in this.

Pretty! Not sure how it would look in variegated yarn - definitely check the Ravelry gallery.

It's pretty straightforward. The only thing that had me like <^$&()!! was remembering to yarnover on the odd rows as well as the even.

Hmm...I'll do that. Thanks!! :)

Oh...dear... o.O
