Oh my gosh, have I really not updated this since January? January!!! Seriously, I'm not sure how I let nearly half a year slip by without blogging here at all.
Well, I have some idea . . . here's the list:
- work - my free non-child time has been eaten alive by my work since . . . well, January. I've had deadline after deadline and no time to breathe. I'm also really burnt out now. So I'm taking a break in July, hopefully. If I get my work wrapped up enough in June.
- Kavya, my kiddo - toddlers are soooo much fun and they have so much energy! She has been on a nap strike lately too. She says "Not sleep time, time to wake up. My eyes are open!" Of course, after several days of this, then she falls asleep sitting in my lap at 5pm. She's never been the kind of sleeper to sleep anywhere, so for her to just fall asleep while sitting in my lap, wow, she's tired. But naps are a battle, nighttime is a battle. And day time is just filled with ENERGY. But the reduction of afternoon naps means my work gets pushed to the evenings, which is when I used to art journal.
- sickness - we've had a huge variety of colds and the flu. I blame daycare - she goes 3 days a week in the mornings, during which time I work. But yep, she also brings home germs. I catch more of them than she does, despite hand washing all the time.
My apologies to any readers of this blog that are still around! I will try to be here more in the future, but I think I said that in January *cough cough*
I did still time to find art journal in the past few months, just no time to scan and share.
Today Kavya and I did art, she painted while I cut and pasted a bit in my journal. I didn't get much done because I spent more time giving her the water bucket, the towel, more paint. She LOVES to paint. Today tho she watched me work in my Moleskine journal and declared she wanted one. "Own journal?" She asked. I have a spare Moleskine so I think I will just let her use it. I suspect it will be filled up in about two minutes because she goes so fast. It's mesmerizing to watch her draw tho. She's into circles right now, which is beautiful.
