If you are like me, you read the heading to this post and started singing White Snake. If you’re not like me, I feel sorry for you because your inner soundtrack is obviously missing something… TOTAL AWESOMENESS!!! Every time I here that song, I have to break out the air drums and smile. When I actually listen to the words I have to laugh a bit because the last time I was alone on my own was about 9 years ago. It lasted for like half a minute before I met my husband, got married and started on what is now a family of four, count them FOUR amazing kids. Still, the song makes me want to surge forward and do all the things I love that get pushed to the side with the day to day of being a stay-at-home mom.
On that note, I will admit that I am attempting Kids Clothes Week Challenge (KCWC) put together by elsie marley. The challenge is to spend an hour a day sewing kids clothes for 7 days! I am already a little behind, but I do have some pieces I am working on including a cute circle skirt for my Pork Chop and some more pants for Moo. It’s daunting but exciting because although I really love to sew and create, it’s often hard to find the time.
On top of that I’ve been back to bentos with the kids’ lunches. This year I have three in school! I had conferences with my kindergartner’s teacher and when she showed me that he was having trouble recognizing some of the letters in the alphabet, I suggested that I make flash cards at home. “Even better,” she said “would be to make him letter bentos! We love the lunches you send with him every day!” I have to admit, I was a proud mamma at that moment. I came home and told him that it was totally worth it to put together those lunches. I was of course cursing that notion this morning when we were all running late and I was trying to be creative yet healthy…
It’s a busy life but today I wouldn’t trade it in for anything!
So what have you been up to lately? I want to hear all about it!
