Sometimes you need to just stop, have tea with a friend, let the kids play, and enjoy a good lunch.
Seriously, on Tuesday I was just having one of those hard days when Ben finally came home and I just let it out and cried. The girls were crazy that day (they got baby powder everywhere and on themselves, then True got Brave's skin medicine all over her hair and face) and I felt so bad for being so so mad at them. I lose my temper too... see, I am not perfect. It was a very hard mommy day for me. God definitely used this time (and many other times) to humble me. Ben came home and after my crying, I said, "Let's go out for dinner, then you can drive me to do my errands." That is just what we did. It was nice to be out.
So yesterday was a nice day as we headed over to Karen's. We just needed to get out, I needed adult interaction and the girls needed friends to play with. It was so cute because Karen told me that Bela had been asking when we were going to get there all morning. We chatted, laughed, talked crafty-fabric-fashion stuff, all the while the girls were all content playing all over the house. I think it was just what Karen and I needed!
I am also excited to share that Karen's new Misha Lulu site is up and running. It is so cute! Well, what of her stuff isn't?!! I think if you have a look around, you will see some familiar faces.

I also had the privilege of making some whimsical hairpieces for the shoot. You can see them here, I think it all turned out so adorable (I'm kinda biased). Ever since then, True has been bugging me to make her some feather clips because Bela wears them. I definitely enjoyed working outside of felt and using tulle, ribbon, and feathers to make hair clips.
And if anyone else is having a hard mommy day, just stop, go out, and do something fun. Sometimes, we just need that. Don't you think? Being a mommy is such a joy, but there are definitely hard moments.
