I’m wavering on continuing on the April Photo A Day Challenge. It’s found here: http://www.fatmumslim.com.au/2012/03/april-photo-day-challenge-list.html?m=1
Essentially, having that list & the ‘canned’ topics motivates me to write on here. I love crossing off to-do’s and finishing things, so committing to the challenge gives me motivation. It also inspires topics, since to be honest, my day-to-day isn’t all that inspiring (obviously, save the little moments with our munchkin), so without it, I might only write every so often. Maybe someday Selah will get a kick out of these too, since I attempt to center most of them around her, or at least our family, since most of the point of this blog was to give updates to family & friends.
But on the flip side, having the topics might hinder me from straying too far from the script provided. Maybe if I didn’t do the official challenge, it would challenge me to come up with my own topics and more meaningful updates?
Who knows. If you have a feeling one way or another, please share. I’m open. 😉
I suppose I could have posted a picture hiking or at the gym, since technically, that’s where I go to relax – exercising is my stress relief. Must be why I’m stressed! (Not much exercising around here lately! 😉 )
But, this is much cuter to photograph:
And I can’t say it’s not relaxing to see my silly girl be oh-so-silly that it makes her giggle. It gives the gym a run for its money, that’s for sure! The pics above were taken this morning – after she insisted I put on her “piglet” shirt, “princess skirt”, black fleece pants (I insisted – it was freezing!), and “pink dress-up necklace”.
Here was the similar outfit (sans pants & necklace, add ‘princess cup’ & soccer ball), pictures taken last week:
Yep, I guess you could say that as a working mom who doesn’t get all that much time with her baby, my “place I go to relax” is wherever my baby girl happens to be playing & smiling (and the tantrum times, well, let’s just classify those as ‘not so relaxing’ & more closely classified under ‘places I try to avoid’).
Aren’t recycled & repurposed toys the best?!? Our “new” recycles pictured here are from sweet Avery & Auntie Shan, and of course we’re “repurposing” the laundry basket as our “house”. You wouldn’t believe me if I said it, but just a few minutes ago Mommy was in the “house” too. Turns out its a little lacking in square footage for the both of us and our toys! 😉
