What Happened This Morning

by Jo Mary Watson

Wanted to do something productive and shareable for @indybiennial today. Even though this is not what I initially planned, nothing would fit better in regards to my Motherhood focus.

My day began with a leaking nappy and therefore soaked toddler at 2.30am. 6am: Two coffees (me), two pancakes (E.) and three episodes of Ru Paul’s Drag Race season 12 (E.’s choice) later, E. started screaming “No sleeping!” for ten minutes, then fell asleep.

After 9am: We went for a walk, I had another coffee, E. chose a specific stick (reminding me of @markhobbsphoto_ ‘s project “Big Stick”), specific leaves and specific flowers out of the masses for reasons only known to her.
Swipe for her treasure, things I wanted to take pictures of and my tired face. Will upload the pancake recipe to the public Dropbox later today, so you know what to do at 4am in case you’re hungry. Ship ahoy. ⚓

E.’s 4am Pancakes.
