This and That . . .
My sewing machine and I have been very close lately. Between getting ready for a show, personal projects, projects for friends, and gifts there has been no shortage of quality time spent down in my craft area. Thankfully, the girls are at a good age for allowing me chunks of time to get things accomplished. That's not to say that I am not refereeing arguments finding toys, and getting snack, but they do allow me to get things accomplished.
I have also been super motivated lately. That helps a ton. It is really amazing what you can all get done in the day if you just keep doing. As a stay at home parent it is easy to just get the basics done and not do anything else in the day. And some days that is what you need to do, but other days it is fun to see how many little items you can get checked off of those many to-do lists.
Peachy is so good at amusing herself. She is always creating and coming up with imaginative play. It is fun to see where that play takes her. She has had some really good sayings lately as well. The other day we were talking about when you get married and why. I of course told her you get married when you are a grown up and love someone so much you want to spend the rest of your lives together. She accepted that, but then countered with, "Or you can get married to get your kids." The other day while we were diving there was a school bus stopped in front of us. She wanted to know why we were stopped and I explained that it is the law to keep kids safe. We talked about how we wouldn't want to hit anyone with our van. "Well, they can always go to the doctor, though mom." Cause, you know, that would make it all better.
