The Best Use of my Time

Sorry for the lack of "Artistic" posts. Sometimes I get a little distracted. Sometimes by mistake, other times on purpose. Lately it's been a little of both. I just really felt the need to step back and evaluate how I was handling some of my interpersonal family relationships. I will admit that sometimes I feel like I fail (more often than not) when it comes to being a parent. Sloan is my biggest parenting challenge. Lately I felt the need to really focus more positive energy on her. I find myself being so negative with her at times. I think because she acts so mature sometimes, I just expect more from her. I have to remember she is still a little girl. She needs my snuggles and positive words and hugs and kisses just as much as the little ones. 

So I have been focusing on my little ones, and letting my art suffer a little. I do have a ton of ideas floating around in my head. Now I need to get to work. My sweetheart will be heading down to San Diego this weekend. I never sleep very well when he is gone. Soooo.................... 

Fortuneteller say:: I foresee a lot of artwork in the very near future.

I think the Fortuneteller is right.

Sweet sleeping baby! I have a feeling Sloan and Jolie are very similar - I'll call you later!

lovely photo! these shifts of focus are so necessary and so difficult for me to maneuver sometimes. and what is it with those relationships with the "firstborns"? i find that one hard to navigate as well! if nothing else, i guess we mamas are all in the same boat. blessings to you as you try to figure it out.... and let me know if you do ;-)

Family should come first! Art is a wonderful gift but those children will grow up so quickly enjoy them while you can! Blessings, Karen
