Come this weekend we’ll all get to set our clocks back an hour which means MORE DAYLIGHTS! WHOOOOOO!
The coming of spring always launches me into a flurry of cleaning, organizing, gardening plans and selecting a few choice projects to do in and around the home over the spring and summer months. I’m slowly starting to wean myself away from harbouring far too many grand ideas in my mind, because that just leads to disappointment.
Pinterest, seemingly, is the new stage for the Mommy Wars and competition is fierce. A theory of which has only been pointed out to me by other bloggers, a thought that didn’t cross my mind before someone else decided it was an issue. I thought it was rather more laughable, the amount of projects we all be pinning, that we know we’ll never have the time for.
Dreaming is lovely. I’d wager that it’s only those individuals, who truly and actually LOVE to make things and tackle DIY projects – whose eyes will get round as pies with all of the possibilities. Reigning in some of my own far-fetched dreams doesn’t really have much to do with concerning myself with what other June Cleaver-ish capabilities and epic time management some other moms have.
Meh. Who carrrrrreeees. I’m not gonna snark on outlandish birthday parties or all of the DIY everything that’s going on, because - my precious energy? Wasted. It’s only a mom-petition if I consider it one. (Plus, I not-so-secretly covet all of that action.)
What I AM going to do is channel that energy to tackle some kick-ass projects this spring that I’ve been yearning to do. Because I sort of LOVE to make stuff. Almost as much as I love my children and partner, good coffee and food, daily yoga and running (who knew?!) and indulging in liquid libations every now and then.
First up on the calendar? Toddler beds. Specifically, it’s a toss-up between switching out the crib and toddler bed in my kids’ shared room with a set of toddler bunk beds and also making a cosy corner reading nook / extra bed in the playroom for naps and toddler friendly sleep-overs. Because those have started happening.
So. Help me choose why don’t you!
