create (a life): spring cleaning

By freshlyplanted - 3:26 PM

Sometimes the stars align in my world and this happens...

For awhile there was a vendetta against naps in my household, as I shared here,  and I was getting nervous that our littlest resident might take up arms in the revolution. Alas, a certain little girl has become content once more to "take a rest." A few things have seemed to help: increasing our time out-doors, moving "rest-time" much later (to 2 or 3pm), and lastly for there to be no expectation of sleep. She'll get that foot stomping if sleep is mentioned, however laying down to "take a rest," with its prelude of books and snuggles, is accepted quite graciously. I am happy to coin whatever phrase needed to get some special Mama time to...

 -rearrange some flowers-

 -paint a few final coats of paint-

 -hang some artwork-

-finish a dress-

I rest through creating. And I'm learning that parents need a rest as much as their children do, even if little girls don't want to readily admit it (wink).
