|Early morning fog over the lake--so peaceful!|
Another difficult thing to do is get in "the zone" while making art when you are bombarded with questions and random thoughts. "Guess what Momma? John Lennon is taller than Paul McCartney. I can't tell about Ringo because he's always sitting down. What happens if the school bus forgets to drop a kid off? Why is it nighttime in Australia?" and so on.
|Looking up at the sky at the park, pretending I am out for a tranquil walk!|
After about 15 minutes I heard a ding. I looked at the clock, wondering how 30 minutes went by so fast.
"MOMMA! Quiet time is over! Timer went ding!" The little bugger forced the timer to zero! Tricky tricky!
Sadly, that was the end of quiet time.
For those of you that are parents, how do you get a little quiet time for yourself?
