How my days are spent

We really have a pretty good life. I get to stay home with my kids, a husband that takes care of us all so well and I have a job that I LOVE! Could I ask for anything more? I know I like to complain a lot about how hard it is to be a parent. Some days, I think, "WHAT THE HECK AM I DOING???". And the guilt, oh the guilt. Never feeling like I am doing a good enough job. The other day I missed something that one of kids had going on at school and I have never felt like such a failure. I cried and cried some more the next day. She of course said it was ok and that she knew it was an accident. I understand that everyone makes mistakes. Matt always tells me I am good mother and we are doing the best that we can.

Luckily everyday I get to start over and try to do a better job. The first part of my days are spent with this little guy:)Lately I have noticed that he is turning into a "real boy". I feel a little sad that I no longer have a baby. He just is getting sooo big.

I have been busy sewing and I just mailed a few custom orders yesterday. I may be adding some owls that look like this.
He is a chubby little bookend. I like his big belly. I made 2 chubby bookends for a special customer.

These to are regular bookends, but they have cute little hearts on their belly. I think I may need to add some of these to the shop.

Today I have A LOT of sewing to do, but first I am going to get my morning cuddle time with this sweet boy:)


  1. You have the most difficult full time job out there!!!! I'm sure you are doing a wonderful job! :)

    The owl bookends are so adorable (and so is your little guy)!!!! ~Val

  2. So, sew true=) It is really very hard to do what we creative types love...stay at home to work and stay at home to be a mommy...they are both beyond full time and both so fulfilling,and exhausting at the same time!
    Love, love the owls...and what a cutie in the Dr. Suess shirt!
