- Just when you think you get the hang of something, it changes.
- You might think that there's no way you will get so concerned about the frequency, consistency, and color of your child's poo... but you will. Seriously, I don't get it, but it's so true.
- Laundry. It NEVER ends. I remember Mom telling me that she thought that dirty clothes did nasty things together and reproduced in the hamper. I'm now convinced she's right.
- Some days, you're the windshield. Some days, you're the bug. Stated differently: there are days when I feel like I am the worst mother ever and others when I feel like I am OWNING this motherhood gig.
It started like any other day. But by its conclusion, I successfully completed two Pinterest mom projects. Holla!
First - not a cute selfie at all, but I had company, and he's cute.
Pinterest project #1: write the alphabet (in random order) on a sheet of typing paper. Then, unearth the alphabet magnets from back in the day. Finally, occupy Luke for a good 7-10 minutes. Score!
By the way - Luke is a beautiful child (duh), but I think this may be the first unfortunate picture of him I got as I (unintentionally) caught him rubbing his nose.
Pinterest Project 2: Go to the dollar store. Buy shaving cream (it even smelled like raspberries). Add food coloring... and get bathtub paint!!!
A lovely bathtime surprise...!
Kate, unimpressed and uninterested, just kicks it in her swing, apparently super solemnly. :)
If you try this at home, please note: it will make the bath water look super gross. I assure you I'm not bathing Luke in lake water here.
So: it's not much, but for one brief day, I felt like the fun crafty mom. I mean, for many of you out there reading this, this wouldn't so much be a special day as it is a routine one, but Luke and I had fun... and I have plenty of raspberry-scented shave cream. Win-Win! :)
