Housework is For People Who Don't Know How to Swing by micklyn

Housework is For People Who Don't Know How to Swing by 

My daughter, Mila (2 and a half) shows us how it’s done. Children have the ability to revel in the little pleasures of daily life and play, and a firm opinion that housework can always be done later.

Taken with my Canon 500D.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
