My day usually consists of preparing food stuffs, cleaning, taking care of the two children still not in school, working on orders from my lovely customers, packaging those orders for shipping, writing and reading blog posts, working on new items for my shop and texting Jeremiah.
I have a pretty good life and although I do get bored with it from time to time, I consider myself pretty freaking lucky.
Just every once in awhile I get jealous of other people's lives. One of those people is Livvie Lou Who and the other is Maxine Jane.
Jeremiah was off from work Monday and we went to register Max for Kindergarten.
We picked her up from her paternal grandmother's house, took her to school, registered her for school, went to target, bought her new jammies as a gift, took her to lunch. She had lettuce, ranch dressing, croutons, jello, pudding and a chocolate chip muffin. Then we came home and she got dressed in her new jammies immediately. I went upstairs to lay Elijah down for his nap and when I came back downstairs I found her in the gameroom like this:
She didn't even notice my presence as I picked up toys off the floor, put them away, snapped these photos of her and then left the room.
A couple minutes later:
Once again, doesn't realize I'm in the room. I snap a few more photos, go about my housework. I come back to check on her a little bit later, mildly concerned I haven't heard from her in awhile:
It was finally after I asked her what I should make for dinner that she gave me some recognition.
Our new pediatrician sent home a pamphlet of papers about how much t.v./computer time children should be spending watching/playing. They recommend no more than an hour of both things a day.
And I thought I was a good mother, whoops.
