Good Mothering

Eli skipped her afternoon nap today, so she fell asleep on the carpet while watching Peppa Pig in the evening. Being a good mom, I quickly took out my drawing pad and started sketching her, instead of moving her to the bed or doing something equally silly. Somewhere in between the baby sketches I drew my own foot, because I remembered that I wanted to practise drawing feet. And over on the cartoony doodle I’ve mapped out the pavement-inflicted injuries that make my baby look like a horror movie extra.

The Xmas tree is up, so both Eli and the cats are pretty excited. And it rained hard all evening, so hopefully the arsonosous horrors are over.
