Settling for less
Monday, January 9, 2012
I'm a little bit of a perfectionist. And a chronic cleaner. My house never feels clean enough. But frankly trying to keep up appearances is getting exhausting. So these days I'm trying to clean a little less and play a little more. And here is the proof.
See this popcorn on my carpet. It's been here since Saturday! Yes, we ate popcorn on SATURDAY and I haven't vacuumed it up yet. What you may see as regression I call progress. I'm learning to lean into imperfection.

After a lovely winter break the kids are back in school this week. Which means back to my normal Tuesday volunteer hours. Today while I was in Zoey's class she read her story to the class. Of course her whole story was only 3 sentences......
And these are the self-portraits I did with them before Christmas but I forgot to take pictures. So when I saw them hanging up on the bulletin board today I snapped a quick pic.
It's great being 4

I love that when the characters on PBS say to get up and move with them that Harrison still gets up and moves with them.
I also love that he still wants to do this EVERY time I am doing laundry.
Color is in season

I am so in love with all the fun colorful things creeping into the stores. The only problem now is trying to figure out where I'd put them all so I can justify buying them!

What's for Dinner?

When I don't want to cook, we have popcorn for dinner. Don't judge.

My grandma sent the kids these duck whistles for Christmas and they LOVE them.
They are cute, but man do they make a LOT of noise!
