This is what Max and Elijah do when I go to the basement to do laundry:
I don't know of many kids that like these chips and although I like them, I have to admit that they're a little bit strong even for me...so why do my babies love them so much? They love them so much that they're brave enough to sneak into the pantry, climb on boxes, get the chips, make their way to the gameroom and start shoving them in their faces in the 2 minutes it takes me to throw a load of laundry into the washer. That's some commitment there.
So let them eat chips!
We went to Jeremiah's mom's house to visit and help her move Jeremiah's grandmother out of her apartment. She's going into a care home...
So I think we'll come home with some dishes...maybe an afghan or something. And this is how much stuff we brought home with us last night:
I'm writing this really quickly while Elijah is eating his breakfast snack and watching 'The Moos' (Sesame Street). Then I have to dig into all this stuff and find a neat place for it. I seriously took $50 worth of cleaning supplies out of his grandma's bathroom cupboard.
I told Jeremiah that it seems like she has more cleaning supplies in her closet than he and I have bought in our entire adult lives.
This is a hat I made for a blogger, I'm going to email her today but I loved these photos of Rosey so much I thought I'd share.
As you may or may not know, I share custody of my three daughters with my ex husband and they are with him every Friday evening-Monday afternoon. Yesterday Rose called my momma on her birthday from her dad's house without me reminding her to.
She's 9 years old and is more caring and thoughtful than I was at 24.
And on a strange kind of note.... Ok... bear with me, I have to figure out how to explain this. I know that Peter Pan is a made up story...but when it says that Tinker Bell couldn't help herself but steal baby Peter Pan, cause that's what pixie's do, does that have any validity in British (or Celtic) myth?
I started thinking that there might be some background to some of the stories told about 'fairies' and 'pixies'...And I don't mean I believe in them like I believe in the Loch Ness, I'm just interested in their place in historical storytelling. Oh, and if your interested in things like these read The Stolen Child. So creepy.
This is my pixie:
