am I right? I mean, just the experience of spending your day with little people changes your outlook on life. Oh, what's that I am sitting on, a can of ravioli in the seat cushions of the couch?--totally normal. Peter throwing a fit because I won't let him carry the plunger around the house--no biggie. Being so fried at the end of dinner that I make a "nobody talk to anybody" rule--this doesn't happen in your house? Leaving the house in my slippers, shrugging as the shopping cart goes careening across the parking lot unattended, because I can't do a damn thing about it with 2 two-year olds to keep safe--ah, f#%k it. I don't even know who I am anymore, I am so immersed in toddler-dom and preschooler-hood. What graduate degree, what salary, what clothes that don't have the word "yoga" in their name, what adult conversation?
Anyways, I don't want to sound like I am complaining, because I am doing exactly what I want to be right now--but this job is really flipping hard! So, here are some scrapbook pages to look at--they make my life look much more fun than it actually is on a day to day basis, but that's why this hobby is so great--you get to focus on the happy moments. And who doesn't benefit from that?
I'm still using up the Studio Calico Field Guide kit from October (which I also combined with the Add-on paper), plus I used a sketch from the SC blog on that top one--love how it came out, and I would never think of those diagonals on my own!
