i'm learning that as a new mom, things almost never go exactly as planned. or according to schedule. and because of this, a whole new level of flexibility is required of me. which is good, but takes some getting used to. it also takes some getting used to that i can't finish every project that i want to, when i want to finish it, and that productive is not always a word that is conducive to motherhood. so, instead of productively churning projects out of my little studio today, instead i will simply stop to enjoy the little things like smiles and toes, and be happy with the tiny slice of 'productivity' that was posted in my shop today.
