I wanted to make a clarification to this post.
When I said my time would be crunched -- I didn't mean my time with Zack. Right now, I don't make any jewelry when he's home, unless it's jewelry we make together (and he does have an eye for color!). My first job is being a mom.
What I meant was my time to make jewelry while my son was at school would be crunched. And my point to that was making jewelry was what would make the money to pay for his schooling, and it was a Catch-22. I didn't mean I was upset that MY time alone or my time for working was shortened. Not at all.
I mean, look at this face. Who wouldn't want to play endless games of UNO with him instead of making jewelry?
