Painting with a toddler

So keeping a toddler busy is no easy task. I wouldn't trade this time for the world though. To be able to spend another year with my wee farm boy is so amazing. He is such a joy to be around and has a great sense of humour.

I found a use for old wrapping paper. Taped on the wall with painters tape it makes a great canvas for him to paint on.  He was surprisingly good about not panting on the walls, but did ask if he could paint me. 
And could he please paint his sister?
The dog?
Ah, no.

I did allow him to paint his feet and walk on the canvas. I can't be the mom who says no to everything, right?

2015, here we come!

Well thank the good lord we haven't had a house showing since before the baby was born. I looked around today and clearly the fog is lifting from my post baby mind - all I could think was "WHAT A MESS!".

Ok. It really wasn't that bad.  But I am certainly NOT winning any Pintrest awards at the moment. I have 5 baskets of folded laundry to put away. The toys in the family room have taken over. And I don't think I have vacuumed our bedroom in weeks.

So I told hubby he was on kid duty and I made a considerable dent in things today. I even went as far as to rearrange the furniture.  Gawd that man is such a good sport. We get two hours while the wee farmboy naps, and I as I see hubby eyeing up the comfy sofa for a snooze I say "let's move the furniture" with glee. 

So he did. And then he made me lunch. He's a keeper. Seriously.

It's amazing how when my space is organized and clean, my mind is more organized. I can think better. 2015 is off to a good start. Now we simply need to get this place sold, as we have our eye on a 100 acre farm.

Here's hoping the cards fall into place! 

Oh. And I finally got the laundry put away.
