crayon love


I am pleased to note that Adelaide is a crayon maniac!

I keep some crayons stashed away up high in the pantry, and Addie has discovered this. She will groan and moan and yowl away, pointing up high at the pantry door. At first this behaviour would annoy me a little as I couldn't figure out what her problem was, but when I finally realised what she had spotted my annoyance turned to a little kind of happiness.

I often wonder what, if any, influence that having two artist parents will have on our daughter.... for both charlie's and my own parents are not artistic at all, and I don't believe that I have any friends who's parents are both creative types. I wonder, will this influence her a little, absolutely, or even at all?

Honestly, however, this is not important to me that Adelaide be an artist at all. My hope for my daughter is that she have a balanced life in which she does not hurt herself or others... and that she will find a one beautiful something that she absolutely loves to do and that she can make her place in this world doing. I have no idea what that something could be, but oh, how I wonder!!!

Isn't it fun to spend a few moments wondering what they will become! As long as they're happy...we're lucky that we live in a society where creative professions are valued much more than they used to be. Happy crayon creating x

I cannot believe how cute Adelaide is. No matter what she is doing she is so adorable. She's a lucky girl to have two artistic parents <3

I'm so inspired by your and Addie's wonderment and play about in the world (in your beautiful neighborhood!). You are a grateful mother who seems awake and aware, even through challenging times. Being a mother of a 15-month-old, I'm always looking to compare experiences, out of sheer curiosity.
Please, keep posting!

I've been an admirer of your loevlydesign for sometime now and this is the first time I'm ever commenting since this posting just touched on my own childhood memories... It's like I had deja vu reading this post, then I came to the realization that your daughter bears an uncanny resemblance to myself as a baby! To make it more bizarre I also designed the packaging for the anti-roll crayola crayon earlier in my career! What a lovely post. What perfect circles life draws sometimes!

What a lovely blog. We considered Adelaide for our Lillian, who looks to be about your Addie's age. We didn't pick it b/c we have also an Abigail, so "addie" and "Abbie" could be confusing when bellowed across the house.
Love the invitations. Thanks for posting.
