self portrait tuesday #10



our day consists of (but is rarely limited to): drawing, snacking, coloring, giggling, reading, movie-watching (which inevitably leads to more snacking), wiggly-wiggling, dancing, alphabet letter-writing, playing, ball-throwing, booboo-getting, crying, pouting, bug-spotting, singing, idea-having, mess-making, naked-running, painting, dawdling, drum-beating, whistle-blowing, collage-making, discovering, noise-making, playdough-squishing, and (well, all that activity makes a kid hungry) so, more snacking. and the most important of all: the fine art of bubblegum-blowing.

let me also state for the record that in NO WAY are we able to fit all this into one day. the faves are in heavy rotation, though and we are making the rounds, people. everyday. everyday.

mommy is a tired girl.

  4. Makes me want to quit my job and work at home. Of course with all that you mention going on, I'll never get any real work done. I'd want to blow bubbles all day.

    Pop!

  11. i love that pic. you sound like a great mom! I feel like such a slacker since i have been pregnant, I don't really organize activities... I just kinda let him play and play with him sometimes... we also are pretty much confined to one room and no table or anything to color on right now- but that will soon be over! YAY!

  18. thanks, all. your comments here often get me through the day!

    la vie en rose- thanks for stopping by... always nice to see ne 'faces' (ha)...

    slim- yes, I think ava does look a little bit like your ava in this pic! and yes, we are SOOOO everlovin' blessed. (thanks for that gentle reminder).

    ward- as much as I would love to have you at home with me all the time, you would NEVER, EVER (ever) get anything done.

    molly- you're so sweet... the pink throughout the rest of the pic was a happy accident.

    jan- dawdle... isn't that one of those words that sounds exactly like what it is...

    zabs- you have every right to be a slacker! you're pregnant! when I when i was pregnant with ezra, ava did a lot of playing on our own and I always felt so bad about that... but sometimes you just have to do what you can to get through, you know? I know you're a fab mommy!

    madness riviera- thanks so much for stopping by...!
