My mother took Sadie (2-years-old) home with her for two days so I could reach my writing goal of completing my work-in-progress this week. Between running kids back and forth to school and doing all the things moms do, it’s still been hard to carve out time to write. Especially when Emma came home with a cold yesterday, which meant no school for her today… which meant I was still writing with kids hanging off of me. I had a couple of hours at home today and I set Emma up in the kitchen with the art supplies. She was painting with water for crying out loud. I was less than 10 feet away from her in the next room writing while she painted.
We had to run out the door to pick Aubrey up from school and run some errands and when we came home, almost TWO hours later, I saw THIS in the floor:
HOW was I with my kid for two hours totally unaware she was missing almost half of her hair?? Really?! I even stopped in a store and re-did her hair because her ponytail was falling down and her hair was everywhere… oh, okay…NOW I get it.
