I'm really loving this photo I took earlier of Maia drawing while Daphne napped.
I also realized there's a post about almost everything in the photo: the art satchel, the "house of color" drawing, the Kai-Lan drawing, the tape resist canvas, and decorate-your-own crowns. I'm in a wierd mood right now — it feels a little odd somehow that all the things around me are chronicled here. I don't know why. Maybe it's kind of like when a word you use all the time, like "the," looks totally wrong and misspelled. Or maybe it's that I have so much going on right now I'm starting to feel like I can't breathe.
Okay, deep breath.
Thank you for all your recommendations for escapist fiction on facebook and twitter! I've written out a list and will head to the library tomorrow. I'm planning to take a break this weekend from the blog, babble, the book, and all other responsibilities and just dive into a book (as much as I can anyway with two little ones around). I think I need it.
