Right Before Bed

Last night, Husband proposed we just go to bed after we put Claire to bed for the night and read for awhile before turning in. He observed that I looked exceptionally tired. We hadn’t done that in a long time — just relaxing together in bed just prior to sleep. So he read one of his Straight Dope books, while I drew in my journal. My brain was too weary to look at words and think. I needed a non-linear, right-brain activity. Here’s what came out. It was a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend time before sleep.

Poor Pixie really is sick. She threw up twice yesterday, had a slight fever, and generally felt cruddy. She slept most of the day. Needless to say, we will not attend our first Baby Loves Disco. I was able to give the tickets away, though, so they’re not wasted.

    Looks like the inner child part of your brain was working, what a cute drawing!

    Thanks for your nice words about my photography.

    I agree that your inner child is at work. I found that with the birth of my granddaughter I laughed in ways I had not experienced for a long time. Your drawings bring a smile to my face. Thanks to you and your baby.
