One Week: Monday

Monday was a head-spinningly busy day. :) Especially in the afternoon. Here’s what I got:

In the “Monday” envelope I stored a card where I wrote out some details about the day.

And this ended up being the story of the day. :) There was a birthday in Andrew’s class. He didn’t just want to tell me about it…instead, he hid in my room making a sign with a speech bubble that said “It is Rebekah’s birthday” then he walked into the kitchen with his sign and all his party goodies. He is SUCH a trip.

Dave is in Rochester right now teaching a class, so I took a screen shot of our FaceTime call last night and wrote about his trip. For my section, I photographed me working in my quiet living room and wrote about what’s going on with work.

Andrew recently discovered that showers aren’t so scary after all and now, in a complete 180, LOVES taking a shower. He loves it so much that he got in ‘trouble’ in school because he kept interrupting the “April Song” to tell everyone that he was going to take a shower that night. And for Isaac’s section, I put a photo of him reading a book on the iPad.

There is the collage page. I usually add more photos of stuff…but I didn’t get around to photographing that kind of thing today. So, it’s a lot of people shots. :) Caitlin and Kyle came over last night to hang out and help me get the boys to bed and wash my dishes! Such awesome friends!

I have been completely captivated with Isaac’s drawing lately. This time last week, if you had asked, I would have said that he couldn’t really draw anything yet. Maybe a face. Or a rainbow. This week he spends about 45 minutes drawing every afternoon. Yesterday he drew Blue from Blue’s Clues and Ticky Tock.

So, then Andrew had to draw Ticky Tock too.

That was my Monday!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    Wow, I’m so impressed you already have this all laid out in a book. Looks great!

    I love your format. I’m still deciding on mine because I won’t print things until the week is over. Plus I’m having a hard time getting decent people pictures.

  4. Love the clock picture, and equally impressed it’s in a book already!

  5. Marti says:

    That full-page picture of Andrew is unbearably cute. So, so adorable. Look at that smile!

    I love that kid.

    I love it when the kids just take off with their drawing … we have had a similar experience here with The Five Year Old!

    Hey, not sure if you have seen this one, but, and even though it is digi, I thought the design and layout might appeal to you –
