Motherhood. Lawyer-dom. And maybe a few nice recipes.

The Table.

The Table

You may recall a while back, in the days before mobile Claire (those were the days!), my life unfolded on The Blanket.  These days, it seems like our life is centered around The Table – the kid-sized table that is the center of AJS’s craft universe.  We sit, we color, we tackle Claire and fish various coloring utensils out of her mouth.  I feel like most of my days can be broken down according to the following stats:

  • AJS’s favorite crayon of the day: Tickle Me Pink;
  • Number of crayons consumed by CCS: as of now, one, but the day is young (RIP periwinkle);
  • Number of art projects completed: one – a book of index cards illustrated by our very own AJS;
  • Number of CCS attempts to go rogue with a marker: one (again, though, the day is young) – she tried to climb to the top of the slide and chow on the black marker;
  • Types of mediums used: crayons (naturally), markers, and paint;
  • Number of break-downs due to artistic frustration: one – apparently it is very frustrating for the tiny AJS to attempt to capture the perfect color to depict blonde hair;
  • Most random place on my children off of which I have cleaned paint: back of AJS’s neck (no idea); and
  • CCS’s favorite character in the coloring book: The Bount, of course.

Please stay tuned for this and other riveting highlights from our day.  You never know what the color of the day will be.

  1. Only one crayon (so far) consumed by CCS, but a close call today with “purple mountains majesty”.
