In my continuing quest to tap-into the creative parts of my brain that have been on lockdown for so long, I've been experimenting with doodle drawing and lettering. I've never been good at drawing but the doodles are simple line drawings that make it simple to eye. I may even get out the watercolor!
Lauren Child to the girls. We all love it. Clarice has a similar voice as Junie B. and Violet Mackeral, that's childish and funny (in a good way) but she's also got good advice to share. We're having fun discussing the plot points and what might happen next. And having a chapter book waiting for me at bedtime makes the routine go much more smoothly, because there's no discussion on what to read tonight.
I was recently reintroduced to Spanx undergarments and for a recent trip bought a few to smooth out the tummy region. Let's not go into details, but sundresses I'd long given up on I have packed for the trip. So ... glory be to the Spanx.

I've started researching places to visit during our Spring Break trip to London. We took the girls to London for about one day last year, as part of our Paris trip, and we only got a small taste. To start, we're not going to miss the Tower of London (we arrived just as it closed last year) and we can skip the changing of the guard at Buckingham, which takes hours!
Lastly, just a shout-out to the stay-at-home Moms I've talk to who fervently correct me when I say I'm between jobs. I have a job, I'm a Mom, and that's full-time employment with long hours and little pay. There's such a sisterhood in the SAHM world that I never noticed and I'm thankful for those reminders. Oh the lessons I'm learning during this at-home sabbatical.
