I started writing my Morning Pages today for the The Artist’s Way and something crazy happened. I became super productive. All of these things I wanted to get done that had been nagging at me for the last few days came spilling out onto the page. Since I was up and dressed with coffee before M, I got a lot of stuff done. Even after she was up, I was on a roll. By the time it was her nap time, which is when I usually begin “my stuff,” I was exhausted! I even got in a few hours of freelance work today. And now it’s almost time for Bella to get up and I don’t know where the day has gone. Most importantly, though, I can’t believe how much I got done.
My productivity must have been infectious because M spent the whole day tending to her animals. Elmo has been talking about how we need to feed pets food and water, so she’s been doing that almost every day with an empty bowl, a teaspoon and her little teacup. After Sesame Street, she told me she was ready for her naptime book. We carried all of her animals to the crib, read a book, and then she got into bed. I peeked in on her and she is sleeping with one arm around her dog and her other hand gripping her teacup. She’s so cute that I hate to wake her.
