i'm a big girl now


The other day I painted all by myself.  Oh the joy!

I was at my mother-in-love's house and she gave me the idea.  The kids were sleeping and I got to use "big girl" paints.  I think it's been a little over a year that I've sat down to paint "for real".  And it felt so good.  Not that I don't enjoy the numerous finger paintings and toast paintings, face paintings, toenail paintings, and paintings on mamma's wall.  Those are all fun, but they often require A LOT of clean up. Well, except for the time when we made homemade pudding paint.  We ended up licking the bowls clean and ourselves of course.




This, on the other hand, was stress-free, pain-free, and relatively mess-free.

I feel all growed up.


P.S.   My Dear Friends,

If you still stop by every now and then to make sure I'm yet alive and to read my scattered posts that reflect my scattered brain, I want to thank you from the absolute bottom of my still beating heart.  Life with little ones can be a consuming endeavor and I just want you to know that I love and appreciate your  presence here.  It makes this housewife of toddler county feel so rich in friendships :)

So beautiful...not only the picture, but the woman behind the picture. I've not been visiting/commenting on many blogs lately (or posting on my own blog as often either), but I'm still thankful to know you and am always blessed when I do visit. Love you!

i love your blog too. and it's good to follow a blog that doesn't post crazy often, since those blogs kinda stress me out...i get a weird feeling like I'm behind if I can't read all the posts. which is how i feel about most things around my house...behind. so thank you for not adding to the list of things i'm behind on :)
