Children, Sleep and Stargazing

Ahh, motherhood. Such joy, such fulfillment - even when your child wakes you before dawn on a Saturday morning. Even the dog is still asleep.

So here I sit, with a LARGE cup of coffee and a bright-eyed 2 year old, ready to share with you something I created when I was feeling both more awake and more exuberant about the joys of motherhood. The Sun, the Moon and the Stars:

I made this pendant with my daughters in mind, and the two bezel set stones are their birthstones. The idea, which is explained at length on my web site here, is that our children mean the world and more to us, and that we'd give it all to them in a heartbeat. Even when the precious little darlings rouse us from our beds at some ungodly hour.

It sounded more special when I wasn't propping my eyes open with toothpicks.

Oh, and these would make lovely holiday gifts for other sleep-deprived moms, don't you think? ;-)

Beautiful pendant with a lovely sentiment behind it :)
Being a sleep deprived mum myself, I can completely understand how the idea seemed more special when you weren't "propping up your eyelids with toothpicks" lol
