I Turned My Back for Two Seconds!

I am confident enough to know that the most recent Avery Antic does not make me a bad mother. It does, however, reinforce how quickly things (good or bad) can happen!

This morning Avery decided she wanted to draw. I have found it is easiest to leave out the paper and pencils so she can come and go as she pleases. Since she was preoccupied, I decided to take the opportunity to check my email.

To draw an image for those who have not been in our home, you can see the dining room table (Avery's easel) from the computer chair. So, as we sat and chatted, Avery drawing, and me on the computer, we had a good ole' time. I would look up everytime she laughed or hollared, but for the most part, we minded our own business.

Then it happened. It got quiet. And as you all know, it's a little scary when that happens. Not knowing what to expect, I looked up and found nothing that I anticipated....There sat my sweet girl in the middle of the table!

I assume that she was trying to get to a pencil that rolled away. That, or the view is better up there.

Stacy looked away for just a second and lawson grabbed her straightener. Put a big blister on his thumb. Felt sorry for him except that once he learned it was called a boo boo he wanted you to kiss that nasty thing all the time.

No fear! That is what scares me more than anything!

Sometimes an artist just needs a different perspective.
