My version of heaven, at least partially.

I have been feeling that old pull to get out the art supplies and play, really really just PLAY, and the opportunity presented itself today when the Hen went down for her nap-nap and Matt took the boys out to Home Depot and I went and put on the delicious ear candy that is Amy's podcasts and got out a whole bunch of art supplies and just went to town-o.


I was quite lost in heavenly bliss until the baby woke up and right quick crawled up onto the table to investigate. She immediately strove to dump out my watercolor paints water and dump out my tea and tear up some essential papers... I'm glad she was enjoying herself, but wait just a minute how does Soulemama get all that stuff done with all four children around 24/7 again?!?! Something is just not right with that picture... perhaps they're all crawling around with a ball-and-chain that slows them down just enough so she can keep ahead of the game... that's the dirty little secret that we'll all be thrilled to hear about one day... when her kids write that tell-all book...

sweet beezus, I still found the time to do anything creative during the day and some of my mama friends are like, quilting and knitting snowsuits and making felted woodland creatures all day. My older son is at school, so when my 21 month old naps I should seize the opportunity BUT, he requires that I lay right next to him in case he wakes up and god forbid, a boob is not near his face. I suspect there is a lot of television babysitting going on out there.
