So it's school holidays. Sometimes busy, sometimes slow, often intense. Especially when you're trying to stay indoors away from the hot weather (41 C yesterday, yikes!) Yesterday Audrey and I made playdough from this recipe while Henry slept. This morning, banana muffins for mother's group later.
When Audrey was a baby we went to a live-in facility for a few days to help us cope better with her sleep (or, rather lack there of). It didn't really help, but there was a fantastically wise midwife there who dispensed some great parenting advice that has really stuck with me. One such nugget was to do something small every day for yourself. In order to keep your head together and remember that you are an individual outside your role as a mother. Not always possible, but so important. So this year, I'm tackling project 365 - a photo a day on flickr. My history keeping up with this kind of thing is a little patchy, so we'll see how I fare! I've noticed a few of my Flickr buddies who are doing the same. Anyone else in?
