Book making

Plenty of time to share interests with the kids!

Right now my daughter is big into comics and graphic novels geared towards kids. She also reads pretty much anything you put in front of her, so it’s pretty fun! But, tying to explain to her that making a perfect bound 200 page full colour graphic novel isn’t something you can do in an hour has proven to be interesting.

yes, yes, there are ways you can be crafty and make a perfect-bound book at home, but not with the supplies we have during this time of physical isolation. We’re stuck in our house. We’re burning through our supply of printer paper. I wonder if staples is considered an essential service?

Parenthood

Yes, kid. Whatever you want, just don’t wake me up until 7am.

Both my daughters are at the age where they’re generally pretty good at sleeping until their clocks tell them it’s okay to wake up. That being said, the second the ‘sun wakes up’ on their clock, you better believe they’re expecting everyone else to be awake and ready to go. On more than one occasion, Diana and I were sleeping pleasantly and were jarred awake by the door flinging open and a preschooler yelling “sun’s awake!” And slamming the door. She’s not even a morning person.

They have them, you know

This is a regular occurrence, but I really can’t blame my daughters. What I CAN blame is the fact that muscle memory doesn’t do you any favours if you’re constantly using different mugs with different shapes and different weights. When I spill my coffee it’s 100% because I’m not really paying attention to what I’m doing. They should invent coffee sippy cups for adults!

Wait- they DID. It’s called a travel mug. Since coming back to work, I’ve intentionally only used my ol’ Starbucks travel mug and I haven’t spilled ONCE. I think I’ve finally cracked the code!
