What do hormones and my finished green suede shawl have to do with one another? Nothing....
but I did get your attention didn't I? We will talk of the power of hormones in paragraph...hang on.
I finished the shawlette for Karen. I do need to take Franklin's class. I feel the images I give you to view just don't really depict the item. The shawl is soft. I am potato chip knitting and have already begun one in pink/coral. Just like Carol did. Carol, my hero!
So hormones. Well, let us just say that one should never ever underestimate the power of the female hormones. Pippa, sort of, went after Fireman Saturday night. She just doesn't like him.
So odd. Everyone likes Fireman. What's not to like? I climbed into bed with him after my shift to a muffled, "Im not going in there again... She scratched me something fierce."
Pippa has hormones, and lots of them right now. It is her job to protect and feed and grow those 6 kittens right now. It is an enormous job. For some reason, she doesn't want Fireman near her. Yet she rubs up against him and acts like she does. Then, look out!
I bear witness to women with powerful hormones rushing through their new mother veins, every day at my job. You must be....careful. You must move slowly. You must understand the innate value of a mother's job to protect her young.....You must let her be ......
I was a mother with powerful hormones once. I nearly bit the finger of a woman who stroked my Allison's cheek in the grocery store. Truly.
Fireman was there. He can testify. I didnt' want that strange woman's finger anywhere near my new baby in her car seat in the cart. I snapped my warning, "PLEASE DONT TOUCH MY BABY" in the produce department. Fireman said to me , "Geez Kath, settle down."
Pippa, I understand.
Do you remember the mother SHE BEAR instinct???
