It's been a bit of a sad week. Not much done all week, but I think it's a bit of a backlash from last week. Tomorrow David (my three year old) has to go in for oral surgery. It's just some cavities that need to get fixed. He has to go under because he's too young to do it any other way. It's a bit scary, but everything should be okay.
What I'm Reading
I've not been reading a lot. I did read a couple of books to my son yesterday. One... I think the title was "I Ain't Gonna Paint No More". It was a beautifully illustrated picture book. The kid in the book wasn't supposed to be painting because he made a huge mess. He gets into the paints... he compulsively needs to paint just a little... soon he ends up painting a lot!
There was also an easy reader that we found about Spider Man. As much as I'd like it to be more comic book like in the layout of the book, I think overall it was a decent book. The words flowed well (can not say that about the lego books) and the pictures were good. David kept saying "I like that!" which is a pretty good complement coming from him. The book held his attention the whole time I was reading the story.
What I'm Writing/Drawing
I'm slowly getting back into gear. Last week was a wash, but this week there will be more posted. My husband has a three day weekend so I should be able to do some artwork!

What Else I've Been Up To
He has grown out of his size three outfits. Almost overnight too! Glad I've been telling people he needs size four! He was barely in size threes.
Not eating many carbs and feeling okay about it. Well I had some cake on Monday, but that doesn't count. It's birthday cake. I'm pretty sure all low carb books have birthday cake down as not counting.
