A Shared Workspace

Snow day #2!  We really are working this winter storm in Fl, 2 days off without the snow!  I set out to cut a pj pattern this a.m. and our youngest college boy had already commandeered the kitchen table (aka- garment cutting table) with his laptop!  So I moved out to the pingpong table.  It's a tad chilly out here in the garage but my heart is warm that I still have a child at home to work around!  It reminds of when our oldest college boy was small.  From the time he was 5 years old, he would spread the daily newspaper on the kitchen floor to read.  I had a time working around him but my Mother advised, "Don't say a word!" I never complained and now I think my kitchen floor is way too empty!  Someday my garment cutting table will be too!  Thanks, Mom!   Jessica Pearl


  1. a second snow day?!? good thing you have a ping pong table so you are not on the floor cutting!!! it is nice to work side by side with kiddos :)

  2. Thanks for sharing this sweet story. I think sometimes when we are always around the little ones that we don't realize we will miss it one day. Great perspective.
