Boundaries Gallore

I have been seriously slacking in the motivation department. I am just recently feeling a little better from a cold I just had. It is kind of hard to focus on a blog when you have an ear infection and can’t stop coughing.

Despite the downs there are some ups. I just recently have been working on some miniatures for my daughters dolls. I made a little sofa chair for the first time. It was fairly easy except for the part where I had to get the fabric on just right. I think it turned out pretty nice. What do you think about it?

It is more of a sofa chair but it fits twelve inch dolls perfectly. I couldn’t of done it better. I applied pony beads to the bottom as the chairs legs.

Other then trying to spend tons of money on Barbie brand goodies I find I enjoy making these miniatures for her and they are a heck of a lot cheaper.

My next project I am super excited about working on is going to be a supermarket for the Boos dolls. I have some great ideas but not sure If I will be able to do it all in one shot. I guess I will have to go with it and see how it turns out.

I am super excited for the Boo. She is really blossoming socially at her preschool preview. I am hoping that when the class ends I will still be able to have her keep in contact with her little freinds.

I find that is one thing that is kind of hard to approach. The topic  of play dates. I don’t want to sound like a complete odd ball about it. I am kind of shy myself with certain things.

How do you cross that threshold of boundaries to connect with someone for your child? If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to send them my way.

As a mom I feel like I could improve in so many ways. I find that the days don’t contain enough hours for me to accomplish what I want to do. Then on the other hand I find myself needing motivation sometimes. It is always a constant battle to clean the kitchen and keep the Boos bedroom clean. I feel like I clean one mess and turn around and see another. Or it is one of those moments where you clean the area up and your child comes through like a bulldozer and trashes it again. Such are the woes of a mother.

Don’t get me wrong I love the mess in a certain way because it shows that she is exploring her surroundings. I am or at least use to be a pretty big neat freak but not so much anymore. I find to keep my sanity I need to bend the rules a little.

What are some time management ideas that you use to accomplish tasks around the house?
