I made this last night. Mr DCT has finished night shift, now it's time to return to normality for a few days.
I am enjoying mixing up funky vintage fabrics.
Mother guilt got me today. With the children being sick, they have watched a bit of television and spent time on the ipad. What is with my mother guilt that goes with that?
Today it did my head in. Seeing the sun wash going to be shining all day - I dispersed the likelihood of it being another day hibernating with sick kidlets.
If my kids were sick and spending their days drawing and reading books, I wouldn't feel so guilty.
Maybe it was an off day for me - Maxabella chatted about 'scratchy' days today. Maybe mine was a tad itchy. Maybe I'm too passive, too gentle. 'Right' - no screens, let's do some construction, drawing, moss artwork. They just needed me to put my foot down.
I am missing those kinder days, maybe it is just those sun-shining days.
We all felt better after some creative fun. Master J made some boats.
Miss G was 'helping' Master S with his smurf drawings.
Master S loves his beanie and reading at the best of times; he decided he wants to be an author today. (Super Master S is meeting Emily Rodda this week at Fed Square.)
Mr DCT had a tad of post-night shift syndrome. I was not very patient. He thought my moss painting is causing him to lose hair. Maybe it is, oh well.
I enjoyed the kookaburra's today; and watched this one eat a mouse. After Mr DCT reminded me of my poor chicken husbandry skills (post-night shift syndrome).
If one is needing calm - I have the perfect recipe... Transplanting moss. Miss G and I were back to it today.
I think we will leave the rest to grow once we have finished the 'nest' and heart and one of the birds. I made another mix today and we re-painted with a new improved recipe:
1 Cup of moss (without excess dirt)
1 Cup of fermented, passed it's use-by date Organic yogurt
1 tablespoon of Organic sugar
Do you get mother guilt? Do you feel like you are not making the chop?
Are you part of The Bunting Swap? I hope you are.
Much Love Rach xo
