Moms, Grandmas and Aunts

If I could I would have sent us all (including sisters) on a fab holiday that included all things Caribbean. 


Instead I made these with the boys. 




Take one tulip bouquet- divide in three.
Wrap bottom with damp paper towel.
Then wrap with tissue paper. 
Add chocolate bar.
Change wording of pages template.






Punch hole in corner.
Tie ribbon through and around.


They liked them. I swear. OK, did not hurt that they were hand delivered by the under 5 crowd.


BTW, this will not fly for Father's Day.

the baby

Today is the baby's birthday. I am weepy about it and can't quite figure out why. Is it that he is my last though people still ask when I will have that little girl? Is it because he "do it heself". Or that at 2 he really isn't a baby anymore?

I think he is weepy about it also. When I told him that he is a big boy today, he replied "no I a baby".

Yes, well you will always be mine.

Confirmation that it goes was too fast.

sick of it

You know what 48+ hours of toddler fever and puking on the porch gets you the day before mother's day?

Caillou at 2 am. Thanks, would have preferred the box of chocolates.

Stop it

I like having a fan in the bedroom- noise-air-all good. What I don't like is when it constantly keeps shutting the bedroom door. 


The culprit:












The solution:












With two boys who would LOVE to move a HEAVY doorstop, I went with what I had tons of in the house. Books. I always remove the hardback covers and "uncover" a colorful cover. So there you have it, won't change the world but it is keeping that damn door open.
