Lately (besides EK) Pinterest has become my new BFF.
I waste waaaaaaayyy too much time pinning goodies, and not any time at all actually doing any of the stuff I’ve pinned.
You see, I have a baby 7 days shy of being 5 months old. Shame on me for my ignorance, but I thought little babies took morning and afternoon naps. I thought little babies took naps that lasted anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours. During this much adored nap time, I had imagined myself an accomplished woman. Cleaning, exercising, cooking, baking, organizing, gardening, blogging.
Again I say, shame on me.
For my little near 5 month old, as precious as she is, is not the long napper. She is the cat napper. No sooner have her little eyes closed as they pop open again. And there she is with a big grin on her face, ready to interrupt whatever project I am neck up in.
But today, and maybe only for today, I’m going to blog about something I’ve accomplished. It’s going to make me feel better about myself and all the time I seemingly waste.
This past weekend I saw a cute idea for Father’s Day, so I decided to play photographer.
It seemed so simple. Make some letters, take EK’s picture
eating holding the letters, arrange them in a frame for her daddy. Easy peasy, right?
Uh not really. This simple idea took me three days. It turns out, photography is hard. Compounded with her daddy walking in and us having to scramble to hide what we’re up to, and a poor layout for the photos, it didn’t exactly turn out as I wanted. Why is it my mind always imagines things much easier, better, simpler, cheaper, and quicker than reality. Do I live in a fantasy world? We’ll leave that question to ponder.
However, I think he was pleased and, well…..
she does love her daddy.
