1. We had a few icy days this month. Not as bad as some in years past, but there was enough on the roads that school was cancelled for several days, and my husband missed a bit of work.
2. My son finally started back to preschool (they follow the local school system schedule), but since he only goes a couple days a week and there were so many cancellations for weather the first few weeks he went about one day and then had two weeks off.
3. I’ve been working on a new pattern and finished the front bodice section this month.
With several projects ongoing, learning about digital art, and the toddler having school days off due to snow and ice, it’s been pretty full week. I’m trying to get business and design related things done when I can, while trying not to fall asleep in between.
One thing that’s made the past couple weeks more interesting is that my son has had another language development leap, and he’s starting to be one of those happy, bossy toddlers – “Mama, sit!” (So he can roll Hot Wheels from the couch arm into my lap.) “Get up.” (To his Dada, grabbing his hand and leading him into the kitchen to demand more banana bread.) “Pizza, pizza, pizza.” (A request for lunch one day.) Haha, it’s been fun but crazy. One friend described the point your toddler starts talking more fully as similar to going on a blind date, like, ‘Oh, so that’s your favorite food, that’s the show you want to watch, etc.’ Suddenly you get a deeper glimpse into their little minds, and it’s wild.
Well, back to editing! Gotta’ use that naptime break. :)
