Aha! So that's how you do it... Wait until they are asleep and those adorable rosy cheeks are snuggled against the pillow and the button noses snoring peacefully. There are only so many pictures I can do of my sleeping babies without making any followers I may acquire snore. One more and then something else I promise! Maybe some garden and maybe with a pen.
This is Edie, 23 months old. I have a copy of a similar picture my own mother did of me at about the same age. I might do one of Billy too - if I am fortunate enough to get him to nap in the afternoon. Right now he is sitting across from me playing "building piggies" (or that's his name for it) while Edie is still tucked up in her bed, and their father is crashed out in Bill's bed after trying in vain to get the boy to have a lie down.
It's 3pm on Saturday afternoon. I am going to bake some bread to go with the soup which has been in the slow cooker since 9am. I might sneak in some True Blood rerun viewing while I do that (I'm re-watching them all in time for the new season). And I might do another watercolour another day, because I think I'll wreck this one if I fuss with colouring it... Right, I can hear a wail. Till tomorrow, then.
