It has been an exciting year for me and even more exciting for Hank the Tank!
In the last few months, Hank graduated from pacifiers, his crib, and from diapers; he celebrated his 3rd birthday, he went on his first road trip with a hotel stay, and he even learned how to ride a bike! (With “twaining” wheels) 🙂
In that same period of time, my first published book as an illustrator was released, and I celebrated with my very first Book Signing! (I am still pinching myself about that adorable book!)
Needless to say, it has been a very busy spring! I hardly had a second to catch my breath chasing my tornado-toddler around, so I didn’t get much time to write any Tired Mama tales for the blog. What I DID write this spring though, were a few new children’s book manuscripts and I can’t wait to (hopefully) bring those to life soon as well!
As I have discovered is true with motherhood, I am finding the only constant in life is change. I have been so humbled to have you all following along with my (mis!)adventures in motherhood, but my course is shifting somewhat these days. My focus is now on LIVING the moments with Hank, rather than reflecting and writing them while he sleeps. These days are so precious and so action-packed that I just can’t seem to find the time it takes to put them into words anymore!
That said–I also realize this is a great opportunity to simplify my social channels and combine my blog and my illustrator portfolio website into one streamlined site, which I have been working on this week. I’d still love to have you all follow along to keep up to speed on my book projects, author/illustrator news, and my artwork, but I’m afraid the motherhood stories will be fewer and farther in between!
Thanks so much for your support these past few years. I hope you hang around to see where the future takes us!
Cheers to new focus and . . . to a new name for this blog: Erika Wilson Books!
(And as always. . cheers to all of my fellow Tired Mamas!)
