It was Monday afternoon and I was aware I really had nothing to talk about this week and so I thanked my internet accountability team (that’s you, you are my unpaid staff!) and we made chalk paint.
I found this on pinterest (surprise, surprise!)
equal measures of cornflour and water – I used 1/3 of a cup of each and mix.
I poured them into teeny muffin tins and let the boys colour their own
Then we went and painted with them on the driveway.
Dinner was baking in the oven and the sun was shining.
It didn’t take all afternoon but it was restful and focussed and we chatted and listened to Bounce as he sang with delight.
The liquid changes to a chalky powder as it dries and it lasts for ages (especially when you can only find super fine brushes!!)
Having dinner organised in the middle of the day and an attitude that the afternoon is for the boys with me made Monday afternoon beautiful. (and with a 5am start it could have been otherwise!!)
This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be) is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too.
Simple. Achievable. Intentional: becoming the mama I want to be.
