quiet time


Mo sleeps in the middle of the day. She is also somewhat of a light sleeper.

This means Katie and I do "quiet" activities during this time. I use quotes because I'm not sure anything a 4-year-old does ever qualifies as quiet.

We generally do a lot of outside activities like gardening, chalk, etc.

I saw this the other day and thought -- perfect.













Self portraits by Mama and Katie.

"The circle in the middle is my belly button... and those other two circles are my nipples."

Nice.

What do you do during "quiet time?"

That is so awesome. I also like her sharp teeth! I always frame my kids' self portraits.

Awww, I love that. Try one every few months, you will be surprised how much it will change.

Those are keepers!! I love that she drew your anatomy. So cute, my son has just moved in to drawing clothes.
