Boy Cave

You know what gets me bent out of shape sometimes?!
When people are all like, "I won't be able to DO things when I have children."
Usually I snap right back into shape. It lasts for like 2 seconds.
If you've said this to me in the past... don't worry, I've forgotten.
End vent. Moving on!

I believe you can set your mind to what you want to do... even as a mother!
Like paint a bedroom with two small children running around.
It's crazy. Yes. But they are my life... and I love to make it work!

Funny - my children are the ones who INSPIRE me.
They make me do crazy things! I was pretty much begged to paint their room "Crested Falcon."

I just put every toy I could find in the living room and let them loose.
They were like elves on caffeine. Basically a dream come true for them.
And then I gave them chocolate-coconut milk shakes... hello!
Bribery is a good thing sometimes, folks.
You know you do it too! Don't judge.

P.S. My children typically wear more clothing. The stripping and raccoon hat was their inner wild man
coming out at they were slightly unsupervised by a domestic influence.

P.P.S. Yes, I obviously cleaned up the room and made the beds for the photo shoot.
But believe it or not - before naptime and bedtime they clean up EVERY toy.
It's a routine. They hate me for it. But I'm cool with being the bad guy.

Celebrating my one year blogiversary aaaaall week long...
