When my own children were babies, my kind mother-in-law urged me to do something for myself. She saw me in the throes of full-time mothering, and while I was loving it, she had the wisdom and foresight to encourage me to take some time out to fill my own cup. Not only that, she treated me to art courses!
I very much enjoyed my 16 weeks of drawing and watercolour lessons. And I’ve spent many happy hours in the years since then drawing and painting…
So I can fully appreciate the pleasure my little friends derive from making art. It’s also one of my own favourite parts of dayhome.
