Sometimes after a day of Disney, or a party or really anything fun my son will say that he doesn’t want to stop. He says that the world is “going too fast” and he wishes it would stop. I guess that’s his way of saying that time flies when you’re having fun.

I agree that the world is “going too fast”. Sometimes I wonder why is it I stress about certain things or feel the need to multi task as much as I do or volunteer to do different things.

I would like to think I am a stop and smell the roses kind of girl by nature but really I have to make a conscious effort to remember to do so. My life and children are whizzing by me and there is nothing I can do about it. No amount of list making or mental tallying will stop life from happening.

Sometimes when I ignore my list for the day and I sit still for awhile, I find myself looking around at the things piling up to do and I start to feel overwhelmed. I wonder why I get that feeling. Among other things I do, I try to do a “sweep” of my house everyday. Don’t confuse this with actual cleaning. But this sweep is tossing out rubbish, junk mail, school papers, newspapers, really those things that pile up everyday. I will also sweep the house for anything I can get rid of, like outgrown clothes (yes sometimes the kids out grow things daily), discarded toys, trinkets and anything else taking up space that is no longer needed. Those things make their way into a yard sale bin in the garage. Sometimes I think I fight everyday from becoming a cludderbug. Some days I get rid of a lot and other not as much. I’m not too sure where all this “stuff” comes from. In my mind I would like to think I am a minimalist but in my mind not only am I a minimalist but I am also in shape so take my mind with a grain of salt. But what is the saying… visualize what it is that you want and it will come to you? I’m not too sure about that as I’ve been “visualizing” winning the lottery for years now and well that’s not materialized as of the last drawing. Well here’s to hoping the world stops or at least slows down a bit… oh and lottos numbers.

I’ve always known MD is a special girl. She entered this world on her own terms and she continues everyday to express the person she is. One of the things she loves to do is art. She loves almost all forms of being creative. Since she was a baby I have always worried that the boy got much more one on one attention, so since he now is in school half days and in between my work schedule she is getting that attention on the back end. 

 

So Wednesday and Thursday’s are now known as Mommy and MD’s special days. We do a variety of things she likes to do. On more then one occasion she has said “mommy I like when it’s just me and you”.

 It makes me feel good that she is getting some special MD time. This week we went to one of those pottery places. She painted a flower box for herself and a coffee mug for me. We were there for about three hours and she really took her time. I just watched in awe of this small wonder. As we were leaving a women came after us and stopped me. She told me she had been at the next table and couldn’t help but over hear MD and I. She said she was so impressed with the dialog between my daughter and I and she had to tell me so. That made me feel so nice. Why I needed the approval of a perfect strange I don’t know but maybe there is hope that my girl won’t grow up to hate me after all. …. Well maybe.

To feel good is wonderful but to feel bad effects every part of your life.

We had a beautiful family day at the park. My serious son is normally very reserved, while he has a very big imagination he tends to keep it on a more of a heavy level. Here he is just being five and enjoying the wind blowing his bubbles.

We had such a great time, MD and I.
We picked the fabric (clearance), my dad’s girl friend hemmed it and we cut and ironed on the velcro yesterday. I am completely happy with how it turned out. MD is tickled pink at the way it looks too!

I love when you have a vision in your mind and it comes out exactly like you had it pictured.
