We’ve been putting off painting the apartment. Other, seemingly more important things always tend to creep up — so we’ve let Eryn spearhead this project. This is her spattering technique.

mmmm... full fat yogurt

White on white may seem boring to some, but it sure helps with clean-up. Or in our case, the lack of clean-up. I thought she did this tonight, but apparently it’s been there for quite a while.

I said no shoes on the table. Boots are fine though.

Short on space? Chairs and tables make excellent alternative shelving or storage areas.

who has time to make the bed?

At one time, my bed was mine. It was also more for entertaining than for entertaining. What you see here is Eryn’s book club. Hopscotch the giraffe, ‘Po the Hippo, Teddy the bear, Baby, and Bunny relax after a grueling session of The Hungry Caterpillar. They’re also regularly put through daily calisthenics, including Head and Shoulders, and If You’re Happy and You Know It. Bunny tends to join us in prayer, and is the first person she asks for in the morning, but I secretly think Baby is her favourite.

Not seen here is Elephant — he’s hiding under the covers.

It's never too early to start them working at home.

Now that Eryn is walking, her favourite activity is to open our drawers and pull out clothing items, one by one, bring each item into our living room, and go back for more. Going back and forth can occupy her for at least 15 minutes, which is forever in mommyland.

Let's dance.

Now, could someone just tell me why her room is the neatest part of the house?
