3.3.14 – Messy Monday

3 Mar

Hello, March! So glad you could bring us more snow this weekend…NOT!

February was a rough month for me. I’ve had a lovely back spasm turned sciatica that has caused a lot of tears, lack of sleep, and frustration. Being in pain makes being the primary caretaker of toddler very challenging emotionally and physically. I’ve been feeling some mom guilt lately. Social media doesn’t help. I would look at pictures of moms fighting cabin fever with fun, creative activities while I was struggling to hobble  walk around the house. I knew in my head I was doing my best, but that mom guilt is a tough thing to shake. I’m happy to report that I no longer want to cut my right leg off. My pain is lower and spirits higher this week (thanks to a Mimi visit, some pain pills, and an appointment with a specialist). I have resolved that March will be happier and more fun.

This isn’t a sympathy post, but I wanted to explain why I went the extra mile for fun this Monday morning. And I wanted to let you know that this toddler paint recipe is super easy to make and clean (1/2 c baby wash; 1/4 c corn starch; drop of food coloring). I always like to avoid Pinterest fails when possible, so I figured other moms would appreciate knowing this pin is a keeper. Cue the pics of Laney have some messy fun!

Of course she liked the clean-up process better than the painting. (Definitely inherited my clean-freak gene!)


And a quick weekend recap:

We had fun playing with Mimi on Friday.

We stayed hydrated at a fun birthday bash.
