***I slept in today and it was glorious. N8tr0n brought Z-cakes in to bed for a little "family play time." AKA: bringing baby back to bed so that I can nab some of the warmth from my sheets for a little longer and put off those mundane parental duties such as oh, you know, keeping my child fed. As she gets older she wants to go play and eat instead of laying in bed with us. It's like she knows that we're slacking off. I let her wander around the house for a couple of minutes and when I finally got up I found her on the couch munching on Jalapeno Doritos. Perhaps the spicy food I ate during my entire pregnancy had more of an effect than I thought?
***It recently occurred to me that Z-cakes is big enough to play outside by herself for a while. The yard is fenced in, there is a window that I can watch her from, and I can leave the door open. For three days now Z-cakes has played outside for an hour at least in the afternoon. I almost didn't know what to do with myself. ALMOST. The first day I checked on her approximately every 30 seconds. But by today it was as if this was part of our routine. Z-cakes loves being outside so much and it makes my day so much more pleasant to NOT have a bored and crying toddler following me around the house. On a similar note, I only had to pull one piece of dog food out of her mouth yesterday.
***I'm so excited to get started on Fall crafts. I'm thinking a Halloween-ish garland from fabric that my mother "donated" to me. Maybe some napkins out of the same fabric? I'm also gearing up to make some of the fun projects that Blair Wise Craft thought up. Aren't people crazy creative? I'm so happy that I have the internet so that I can copy a wider array of people. I also dug out all of our Halloween decorations from the dusty corners of our basement. They are meager and few but I'm collecting more and more every year! (thanks mom) There are still a few Summer crafts that I absolutely REFUSE to store until next summer. I'll have to bear the dissonance of scrapbooking summer pictures while I snack on candy corn.
***The cool wind today made me want to
***Here's one of my favorite pictures that I took while staying at the cabin in Bear Lake. I was quite taken with the kitsch of the place.
In case you need proof about the whole "only eats half the apples" thing.
***I hope you had a good October 1st too!
