I am feeling a little raw today, both mentally and physically. There has been a large fire near us that is spewing smoke and ash into our air so my throat is raw and sore. It is ugly and stifling mixed with the heat we have been having.
Pre-school went well on Wednesday when I was one of the class Mom's, but today was a different story as I dropped the wee one off in tears. An hour later I got a phone call from her teacher. Fortunately it was just to let H talk to me for a minute and things were ok. To add to the anxiety I felt dropping her off and leaving, we are still struggling with potty training. We KNOW she knows how and when to use the potty but she is fighting us tooth and nail. A prerequisite for this school is she use the toilet, so the battle over wanting to wear a diaper makes getting her there even more stressful. As I walked away from her class room this morning, my heart broke. I sat in my car and cried.
I treated myself to a Starbuck's mocha and headed home to catch up on some work. I just did a new banner for Delila of Sepia Art Studio for her new shoppe, which I think is supposed to open this weekend. I got to use a piece of Delila's delightful work and then pretty much had free reign. I took a bit of a different approach to this one but I am pleased with the outcome.
Good luck in your new endeavor Delila!
I am seeing a bit of a slow down in my work flow.. finally; so I hope to get a bit more caught up on my web site which I have sorely neglected since Hope sent the templates over to my eager little self. In addition, Art*Play is quickly approaching and we are excited to meet some new people and get messy in the process. If you are interested, we still have a couple of spaces available.
OK, I am off. The wee one is home and conned me into a diaper for a nap, then tried to get up. GRRRR Does anyone have any potty training tricks up their sleeves for a hard headed small person? I am at my wits end!
