Wednesdaily - I'm Okaymom (TM)

If I were Supermom, I'd have arranged a lavish birthday party for Guppy this weekend, and I'd be bringing luscious home-baked (but healthy!) treats to preschool tomorrow.

But I am not Supermom, I am Okaymom (TM), and I bought storemade (not at all healthy) cupcakes at Safeway and figure this is probably the last year I can skate by without an actual birthday party. (I did ask her if she had any friends she'd like to invite to a party, but she's still very lukewarm on the idea of friends and kids her age and her teacher says that's normal at this stage.)

I parent aide tomorrow, which I had not exactly planned to coincide with her birthday class, but it should be fun. Wish me luck! These are usually stressful days, if fun.

The most critical tax things are finished and mailed via certified mail. (Due at the end of the month, so I made it, yay!) I've got 8500 words on my second novella. I just got a few hours of freelance programming done for a client. I need to get inking on my coloring book pages. (Submissions close March 15th, ya'll! http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/submissions.php )

Really I just want to watch Gotham and eat ice cream from the container now, but it's time to go wake up the child so I can get her to sleep early and up early tomorrow. *sighs*

Off to be Okaymom! Provider of snacks and enforcer of naps!
