Mae made a pillow

August 23, 2012

Mae is always making something. Today, she made a pillow at daycare. She decorated and painted it. She told me it’s a butterfly sleeping. Okay, then. I can see that.

It was nice having three days of quiet time while Mae was away at daycare. I still miss her like crazy, and I still don’t know what to do with myself – but I know it’s good for my blood pressure.

There’s about 12 days left before school starts. Mae is STILL sleeping in. I think she was up close to 8:15 this morning. Oh man – it’s going to a challenge if she doesn’t start rolling out of bed a little earlier each day. I just hate waking her – she’s a BEAR in the morning – but I’m now thinking she’ll be Godzilla by the time school starts if I don’t start doing something now… Seems to me we went through this last year. Maybe I should take a short trip back home that first week of school. Hmmm…

The look of an artist

August 3, 2012

Mae went to an artist camp all week. I think it was called Picasso camp. She had a lot of fun, and her last project was making a mask from paper mache (I think that’s how you spell it). The only down side to camp is Mae is completely wiped out when she comes home. She’s a bear. So, it was difficult to get a photo of her yesterday until she had a little snack and some quiet time.

Her big sister has been away all week, too – so it’s been nice to have a little quiet time of my own. Next week, all the girls go camping for a few days – which means MORE quiet time for me. Now, if I can just get my back to stop spasm-ing. Blah.
