I have a problem. . .

Perfectionism. It's something many people struggle with every day. I am one of those people. Some people think that it's not necessarily a bad thing. It is when it keeps you from living your life the way you want to because you hold back until everything is "just right" because guess what? IT NEVER IS JUST RIGHT!

SO! I stopped blogging a lot because I always felt the blog posts had to be these amazing works of my creativeness. Yeah, that's sad.

Anyway, today I am going to post about how much I miss my baby boy and how I am so afraid he's going to have more fun with other people this summer than he will have with me. He's been gone to Texas for two weeks and then he came back for about two days before he headed off to Macon to be with my parents for a week. It's been perfect timing as I have been insanely busy, but I still miss him dreadfully.

This was taken the night he returned home from Texas.

Deep down, I know that I don't have to be spectacularly amazing for him to enjoy being with me but working from home makes things difficult at times. He knows that when I am home I am working but it still doesn't quite make sense to him why I can't play or let him go outside and play without me being there to watch out for him (yes, I'm THAT mom).

I told him we'd do craft projects this summer and I haven't gotten any of the stuff together yet to do them. However, we did do ONE together before he left which was (in my mind) a failure, but at least they were tasty.

 This would be my attempt at making dinosaur fossil cookies. They don't look too bad pre-oven do they with the jelly beans and m&ms as dinosaur eggs and cinnamon & brown sugar as dirt? . . .
I don't have any post images because let's just say the dough completely spread out to the point where it was just one sheet of COOKIE (singular) and the dinosaur footprints were nowhere to be found.

Oh WELL! That is life. And at least we had fun making them.

And that's all I have to say about that. :D

Please contact me and we'll talk pictures. . .
