On the way home from church today I asked MW what she wanted to do, since today was technically, sort of, her last day of summer. (We have orientation tomorrow and school begins Tuesday.)
"Feed the birds and play in the hose," she said.
And that we did.
T caught us at the tail end of playtime. As you can see, MC was just "chillin.'"
Rewind a bit...Yesterday MW asked me, "Do I really have a puppy, or am I just dreaming?"
Thinking she was playing a game with me, I assured her she was "just dreaming."
She smiled and replied, "Oh good! Now I don't really have to take care of a puppy!"
Later in the day she told me she "wouldn't be sad if Warrior died."
I gasped and asked, "why?"
"Well, then I wouldn't have to take care of him."
I think the honeymoon is over.
Last night I heard giggling. No. Make that roaring laughter and screams.
Guess what I found?
Bro and Sis sharing the pot.
I've been doing a little sewing...
Trimming burp cloths for starters. I did this for the other two and quite frankly, had no intention of making more. I thought I had a decent stash...however, MC has a touch of reflux and so we go through several burp cloths a day, so I tackled a stack of plain diapers and trimmed them up right.
Sticking with the subject of sewing, a few weeks ago I set out to make a soft, sweet gown for MC. After making a lot of mistakes and learning a lot of what to/not to do, and after weeks, now, of slipping gowns either over her head or up her tummy, I got this idea in my head and set to work...
Half way through, I worried the ruffles were too much and I almost took off what I'd put on. But then I decided since it looked good on paper (I sketched it out prior to any cutting or sewing), I'd see it through to completion.
I'm kind of tickled with the outcome. I think I'd make the ruffles smaller if I had it to do over.
PS: I am working on organizing the labels for my posts, working towards some consistency rather than just slathering something down there...I was trying to think of something "clever" to take the place of "daily life"...so I pulled up google and typed in, "doing something over and over," 'cause, you know, that's my "daily life" - doing the same things over and over. Do you know what came up?
