Muse

Muse: mixed media on canvas
being a mom means that you have little muses surrounding you always. aren't we moms lucky?
It’s hot today. We’ve been playing and crying and laughing and drenched in sweat and then dried again. Now we’re all salty and content.

I walked into the kitchen and I spotted her on the floor. She was laying there on her back with the most peaceful half smile on her face and her feet propped on the cupboards staring at the ceiling. She was humming and there were cherries next to her on the floor.



We all know that motherhood is hard.

But that’s not the point.
Sometimes it’s nice to be reminded.

Because then I refocus and remember. There’s a lot to remember, no? But when I do remember, life is so much more enjoyable.

and it's usually the simplest things that remind us of why we do it. today it wasn't taking my kids to the museum that did it for me. it was watching them eat their fortune cookies after lunch, and freakin' out when they found paper in a cookie!!!!
