As of today I have been a parent for an entire decade. Wow. She has changed so much… she is loving, determined and intelligent… also stubborn, dramatic and has a wide diva streak. I can’t believe this willful, wonderful creature has been in my life for so long. Happy 10th birthday Sweetheart.
My children all have the caving instinct. They are happiest making a tent or fort under the kitchen table to play. This brought it to a new level with DD#3 falling asleep under/on the coffee table. That really couldn’t have been too comfy! Comfortable enough though apparently!
Today I had to take DD#4 to get her first hair cut. It was a hard day. I was scared because I thought they would have to cut too much because of a huge rat’s nest she had made in the back of her head. I was so worried about them cutting her hair and her ringlets would go away. Thank goodness that didn’t happen! They cut off close to three inches and you couldn’t tell! We got a certificate and cute little bag to hold the first clippings shown above.
DD#1 and my hubby discovered finger nail paint pens at our local Sam’s Club this past weekend. DD#1, knowing that I felt like dog do-do due to my turn with the stomach bug my children are passing around, decided to paint my toes. I firmly believe I now have the most beautifully painted toes this side of Florida and I know that there are no other toes, painted like these, in the entire world. I am a spoilt, though still horribly ill, Mama.
DD#5 is my resident escape artist. There is not a shopping cart seat or high chair strap she has not been able to escape from – this has made life frustrating… When I was at Target, just wandering around as you do, I saw this. I immediately brought it. It worked! Ha! We’ll see how long it lasts for, but I am faintly optimistic!
DD#2 made this awesome, framed picture for me. It makes me smile whenever I walk into my room. I love that she framed it, really makes it stand out. I think I will get her to make more art for autumn and frame that too 🙂 Awesome!
Sorry about the blurry picture… but she is a baby on the move. Crawling less and less and walking more and more, she has definitely taken off! This morning she started “helping” to get dressed and undressed. Sniffles… my last baby is getting big!!
Today I let DD#1 have her first solo baking experience. She chose to make Nutella cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream as her first item. The cupcakes turned out really well, and I was super impressed with her frosting skills!
