i was totally going to do another page tonight, but then i fell asleep trying to get my toddler to bed…she was doing this awesome thing of screaming at me instead of laying down for bed. she is two & a half, but she refuses to talk. sometimes that happens with kids. i’m told i didn’t talk until my irish twin (born 13 months after me) started talking. so my toddler is a great communicator. she is a gifted mime & knows a lot of sign language, but when she is frustrated, angry, or very very tired–she resorts to this ear piercing scream. so lovely. but i actually fell asleep to her screaming at me. i guess i was just that tired. and i did not wake up to blow off my geography & draw page six of moses jones. instead, i am posting a picture i did for my drawing I class final–crosshatch–a series called “old people with animal parts.”

i'm a disaster at every type of relationship i enter into...except with my kids. i think i'm doing something right there...but it is difficult to tell sometimes, especially since i have a pretty crappy support system since support involves relationships. i am a pretty dark person with a weird sense of humor. i spend my non-mom time cooking, baking, homesteading, fermenting, planting, sprouting, experimenting, reading, writing, drawing, plotting, obsessing, and hiding. as a mom i am about as unconventional as i can get. i unschool my kids & give them a lot of freedom to be who they are. this does not help my popularity. but my kids are super cool. i love my kids.
