he does his work and i do my work



Some of you may not like play-doh but for me it can be a lifesaver. Often when I am working I set Will up across the table from me and pull out the Play-doh and we work together. Some days it takes a bit longer but the most important thing is that we get to spend some time together while we are "working". Things have been very, very busy and my work is a true blessing that I am very thankful for!

I just added the Serenity, Courage, Wisdom piece to my shop, which has been a best seller in the standard block text and is now available in the fancy script font.

Have a great Thursday!

As always he is so adorable! So cute that he sits and "works" with you. Truly a blessing to be together!

Someone a few years ago changed my mind when she said to me "I was always a we'll do playdoh tomorrow mom" -- meaning, they just never got it out because of the mess and the clean-up.

But as we all learn to let go and realize that spending time with our kids is really the most important thing, the mess doesn't seem, well, so messy.

I have become a "yes, we can do playdoh" mom and I love it -- and so do my kids.

And Kristen, another beautiful piece! You're so talented! :)

Hugs!

I keep a cannister of Play-Doh on my kitchen counter so, whenever I need to, I take a whiff, returning me to a childhood safe place. On really rough days, I actually take it out of the jar and sculpt. Ya gotta know your medicine and when to take it.

That sounds like fun. I want to try that. Have a great time.
