Early Morning Art

I was recently lamenting to my sister that I could remember during toddler years of my first, I was filled with spontaneous crafty kid ideas. This was jokingly said on my part because I had checked a book out from the library, "The Preschooler's Busy Book" by Trish Kuffner. It's good and full of things that I often just busted out with in the earlier years of parenting. It's not rocket science, after all. But it does take a few extra brain cells and a light heart to "be fun" with kids when you're overwhelmed with life's details. So this morning (before 7 a.m., mind you) I broke out with my child-like heart, and these are what we made for breakfast. A "monkey face" for my boy, and an "I love you" for my girl.

Have yourselves a good one, friends!

What cracks me up and breaks my heart is that your children will remember THIS. They won't have any comprehension until a much later day (if ever) what your fears and daily struggles are like in these days. The moments of fun and showing them you can cope partially by busting out your own childlike spirit will be what they remember of their Mom. Happy Birthday, Mom!
