Yes. My kids still have plenty of time to hang out with friends and play at the park, pool and anywhere else we might want to go that day.
Painting can be extremely messy!
We host a bi-weekly art co-op at our house with some homeschooling friends. There are six kids ranging from two to eight years old. The older five kids do a pretty good job of following the instructions and not making a huge mess, but my rambunctious two year old is another story!
I have taken a bit of a break from my Back to the Classics Challenge to read a few great mothering books.
I’m a sucker for books written about parenting, but motherhood is my favorite. I love that I can completely relate (most of the time) and that they have me laughing and crying throughout. There is something special about the bond of motherhood.
I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on motherhood, parenting and life in general. I keep coming back to the thought that we need to follow our hearts. Even when it is very different than what others think is best.
Twice this week I’ve been covered in mud. The first time I slipped on a nature walk and covered my side.
The second time was by choice.
No I didn’t have a fancy spa treatment. This was the mud puddle you find after a good week of rain in your own backyard. Well in this case our best friends backyard.
