As tiring as some days are, I really am loving this point in my life and the life of my family. We have such simple days and enjoy simple pleasures. I have had to put most of my projects and hobbies aside for the time being as my little ones need me to be a mama to them more than create things for them right now. That being said I do find bits and pieces of time here and there to create and accomplish.
Most of these bits of time happen to be when Josh is home. It is easier to step away for a moment, make a mess of supplies, and be able to focus when there is an extra pair of adult hands in the house to hold a baby in need and entertain a toddler.
But even with daddy around, Mama doing projects is by far the most entertaining item of the day. So you can clearly see why it is that when I sat down to work on a little something the other day my helper was quick to join me.
Whenever I get frustrated by this I remind myself that there is going to come a day in the not so distant future when I will sit down alone and no helpers will arrive. With that reminder I don't mind my lap being filled because as I teach little hands my projects my heart fills up too.
