Knight Rhys.

When my little boy says a prayer at the dinner table thanking the good Lord that his name is now Knight Rhys, it makes me happy.

(Also when he calls his nana on the phone and then proceeds to get mad at her for not calling him by his new name, furrowed brow and all.)

Just call me James.

I LOVE organizing…it makes me so happy. I definitely don’t do it often enough and having toddlers in the house makes it very difficult to achieve a state of order in the home…but I think I may have gone a bit overboard on this last one. I sorted all of the kids toys this morning (a weekly event at our house) and I just didn’t stop! I kept going! My OCPD husband will be so happy with me 🙂 Usually when I ask James to help me clean up I’ll find him, 15 minutes later, sitting and alphabetizing our DVD’s. I don’t want my DVD’s going from A – Z, I want my floor swept!  I’ve never really understood him until now.

I’m so happy that I was able to help make the world a better place today.

Day Thirty!

To conclude my 30 Day Art Love project I’ve decided to go with something slightly more ridiculous than the rest.

I call this

“Honey, we need to talk”

Day Twenty-eight.

“My fridge is where I keep my food”

*So, yesterday was the first day I felt totally uninspired to paint. I thought about a few different things and nothing seemed like a good idea. I was feeling a bit blah yesterday and just-so-happened to space-out right in front of my fridge…and then it struck me, “I should paint my fridge!” So I did. And there it is.*

Day Twenty-seven.


*i call this ‘amazing’ because i printed one off for Amelia to do yesterday morning and she took one look at it and said, “Oh, that’s amazing mom!” it was pretty cute. james has been working like crazy lately and i haven’t been able to spend tons of time with him these days…(insert sad face) so i decided to make a maze for him to do when he got home one night. it was the first maze that i’ve ever made and it was TONS of fun. i was slightly cross-eyed by the end of it, but what’s love without a bit of sacrifice? feel free to print it off and navigate your way to the little heart…or better yet, print one off and give it to a valentine! enjoy.*
