I used to think that people who didn't post to their blog regularly are lazy or not committed to their blog. I now realize how ridiculous I was for thinking that because it has nothing to do with either, it has to do with how you prioritize life. It is more important to live life than to post about it. It is a bonus when you can do both, but it is definitely more important to live. Ahhmm. So, my last post was back in November... and the statements above are not excusing me from my non-post, but a whole lot of living has been happening around here.
little miss workbench has evolved into a major project. My time has been spent building wooden toys, along with photographing, editing, and posting to the website, oh and being a mom and trying to be a good wife. It is sometimes a total circus here; Mali will be running around dressed like a princess, freezing everything in sight with her magic wand, while I'm trying to sand down pieces of wood. Then she will try to sneak a piece of wood off of my workbench, but blow her cover because she is giggling. I get it. Eat. Play. Sleep. Repeat.
Mali is almost three. (Potty training is also in progress; someone please remind me if we have another to start the process much earlier.) She is a fun, energetic, and curious little kid. But on some days, my patience is tried and the amount of work that I actually accomplish while she is dancing circles around me drops exponentially; we dance and have tea parties instead. Sometimes she runs as fast as she can into my arms and says, "I love you mama, can we snuggle?" and life is good.
Priority #1 - Live the life you love and love the life you live. The rest will figure itself out.
I'd love to hear from you. What are you working on these days?
