I’m feeling extremely blessed with these three children I have. I want to make use of every minute I have with them.
Quality time. 12 hours every day. My goal is to make it all count. To make every hour a happy memory of their childhood 🙂
We did some baking and cooking this morning.
After cooking, I painted Brooklyn’s table top. (I’ll paint the bottom half next week)
And only dropped my paintbrush once. Yay me.
Enjoying the payoff of our work this morning.
The homemade pizza turned out pretty good. After I scraped off the burnt bottom, that is.
Payson liked his bread but really lit up over the cookie.
No healthy substitutions were used here.
Nuttin’ but fat and sugar. And yumminess.
I got Payson cleaned up and let him down to play while I washed the lunch dishes.
He pulled a cup off the table. Like he does every single stinking week. And then screamed about it like he does every single week.
(later in the day he grabbed the same cup off the table and the last little bit spilled on him. He screamed again. Not the smartest kid around)
Oh and here’s where I let you all in on a dirty little secret of mine.
I can’t for the life of me catch up on laundry. These are stacks of clothes around my house today.
Luckily only one stack is dirty, but still.
Today during school I focused on circle time for pictures since my blog friend, Mindy, wondered what we do.
We do show and tell.
We do this thing where I put random objects in a bag and they try to figure out what it is without looking.
We do puzzles.
And flannel board stories or puppet shows.
And we do our calendar, weather, numbers and letters stuff.
Oh and we sing a whole heckuva lot.
And a couple pictures of what Payson does while we do school time.
Basically gets into as many things possible, making the biggest mess possible in the time that’s allotted to him.
Oh and I didn’t take any pictures of me today because I was just too busy to change lenses to my kit lens but just now I took this one because someone asked me to show the goofy face I do to try to get Payson to do his goofy face.
I took a couple more because I’m starting a self portrait project.
I was hesitant to blog about the self portrait thing because I didn’t want you all to hold me accountable. haha
It’d be a much funner project if there were others doing it with me.
So whadya say? Wanna do a self portrait challenge? 30 days?
