LETTER IT

It seems there are never enough hours in the day to get all of the kid things and the mommy things done. I've figured out how to shower with the kids around (baby surrounded by toys on the bathroom floor, Lauren in the bathtub playing with her toys) and make-up can happen (though Lauren usually ends up with makeup on as well... but she does her own which leads to questionable results). But things like crafts, blogging, photo editing, laundry folding - all activities that can't be accomplished with kids around - have to get relegated the the few hours in the evening that I have without small people. It seems that I end up with not enough hours in the day to get everything done.

Lately, I've been doing lettering art. This is something that I've fiddled around with but now I'm doing it by hand, instead of with computer fonts. And I love it. I love being able to use my hands to create something. I've been posting my lettering to Instagram (@amandaarneill) and lately I've started a hashtag called #saidaroundhere with lettering art of the things that are said in our house, either by an adult or a kid. I like that it is a good way of capturing the silly bits of our lives that make us laugh, shake our heads and roll our eyes. Here are the #saidaroundhere pieces that I've created so far.

Lauren kept insisting that she wanted to read the "Beep-Bop-Boop" and it took me a ridiculously long time to figure out that she was talking about the Fairy Godmother. Bibbity-bobbity-boo!

The new shampoo that she uses makes lovely bubbles in the water if I run more hot water into the bath. To Lauren's delight, apparently they also taste good.

When asked if she could bring her dishes to the dishwasher, I got a happy reply.

Potty training is finally done but this was an oft said phrase while it was still a work in progress.
