what do you do all day?

That's the name of a book that's been on my list to read. 
For years now. 
Who's got time to read when you have kids? 
But that's a whole other story.

Finally the boys started school. 
Even the little guy is in MDO a few days a week 
so I have a few hours to madly dash around town, 
running errands without having to lock and load 
three little ones in car seats and distract them with bribes 
and food items just to make it through stores without fits and blow-ups. 
A big fat wa wa wa. 
I'm blessed I know 
but I've never worked harder than as a SAHM. 
NEVER. 
Not even when I was surrounded by dangerous chemicals and reactors all day long. 
NEVER.

Between cooking, cleaning, laundry, and raising babies 
this is what I've been up to...
finally excited to say that ZB's room is done (for now anyway)!

Make euro bed pillow...check



Now I realize the room would look better
with a different furniture layout
but this works for us...
one less way for him to roll out of bed
with it pushed up against the wall :)
Speaking of walls...
Art work ...check (one more wall to go though)

and the Pièce de résistance....



Found this baby at a thrift shop...story and before pics to come.

You know you've done good when you hear noises in your little one's room 
and walk in to find him with his face right up against the dresser, 
playing with the drawer pulls and then giving a kiss to the drawer front. 
I said "zb, what ARE you doing?" 
and he goes "Mama, I just love my new dresser." 
And yes he knows the word "dresser" b
ecause I've been working on this piece for a whole month so he's heard me say
 "I'll be outside working on the dresser" only about a million times.


Lastly, a little preview of a piece of art 
I've been working on for the dining room...


Not sure about adding nailhead trim to the outside 
or adding a border of some sort around the words.
 I saw this prayer in a CL magazine years ago 
and have carried the paper around with me since.
I love it that much :)
