So I now find myself doing what I call the "6 month catch up". You know all the stuff you said you would get done or start doing before the baby arrives, but never really get to until it's almost too late. Like do a prenatal yoga class, get massages, start making more food from scratch, start Hypnobabies CD's, read pregnancy books, rearrange son's space to make room for baby brother, take lots of naps (yeah right), organize closets, take monthly belly pics, go through old baby stuff, paint super cute baby onesies, make new baby name for the nursery wall, on and on and on.... I did this my last go around in pregnancy, where I had such a big to-do list that I kept putting off because it feels like you have all the time in the world in the beginning, only to freak out in panic that there is only 3-4 months left and you've barely started! At least I can scratch one off the list this week...
My 6 month Belly Pics
It doubled as a creative play project for my son and a cute pic idea. His eyes lit up when I suggested that he paint a picture on Mama's belly for Baby Brother. "YES!" He exclaimed and ran off to my craft room where he knows all the paint is kept. I had him put his sweet little hand print on the side as a signature of the artist, that just sent him into a panic that his hands were dirty, which we scrubbed off immediately. I then tried to get him to take the picture with me, but all he wanted to do was hide under my skirt and then he ran off. Oh Well, the fun of being three years old. Thanks for taking a moment to catch up on my little life. Here's hoping your summer lists are nowhere near as long as mine.
FYI: My Summer Art Biz Newsletter delivery date will be probably be Monday. (I am so behind on that blasted to do list!). So if you want to get in on the fun (my summer sale will only be offered through there, plus a free gift!), then sign up with your email in the white box to the Left before then. Happy Weekending to you!
