Well, I didn't get my work done last night. At 9:30 I collapsed out of sheer exhaustion because my little one had been up much the night before with some mysterious issue that kept the both of us awake for a good part of the night. So today, I'm trying to play catch up, but as many of you know, trying to get work done with kids underfoot is really not very easy! So, I'm throwing in the towel again, and instead of writing the blog I had planned for today, I'll just share a little of what I was trying to deal with this morning and you can get to know me and my family a little bit better....
This is my little Asher. He is 3 1/2. He is eating a chocolate power bar for breakfast. Well, it's actually his 2nd breakfast; the kid is growing like a weed right now. Anyways, a chocolate covered kid is not a welcome sight in a sewing room with yards of brand new fabric out on the cutting table.
After breakfast, I put Asher to work to keep him busy. He doesn't have the dexterity yet to hand wind my shirring bobbins, so I have him put all my pins back in the pincushion from my magnetic pin bowl.
He actually loves this job, and it will keep him busy for a long time. The only problem is that he loves to push the pins all the way into the pincushion, and when I'm trying to use them later it takes way more effort to get them out than when I put them in!
When I'm at my wit's end, I open the door to the dog cage that's under my cutting table. Usually one or both little ones will climb in and entertain themselves in there. Ooops, can you tell from the pic the door is locked? I didn't do that, I swear! Asher locks it from the inside out. Really. No. Really!!!
Anyways, this is my daytime life, stay at home mama, oh and I have one more at school. Here he is, Aden, my first grader.
And this is why I can't accomplish anything during the day. And I have to go now, because Asher keeps pulling on my arm telling me it's time to go do "rock n roll band." Rock, on ladies!
