For The Love Of Polly Pockets


Our kids are only slightly spoiled but just to the right amount and mostly at the hands of an extremely loving grandmother.  We don't give them an allowance for doing chores because right now I want them to help because they are part of the family, not because we are paying them to do it. So yesterday when Mr. Byrd told them girls that they would each get a new Polly Pocket if they helped bag up the branches we were pruning off of some plants outside, they went crazy. Those girls worked hard and with determination to be able to go get a new Polly Pocket doll. But of course, that kinda … [Read more...]

My Kids Are Weird

clara being silly for Clumsy Crafter

Tuesday afternoon we headed down to the park to play for awhile. I grabbed my camera because I wanted to play with and learn more about my new lens. The only thing that I learned is that my kids are weird. Really weird. This is my new all time favorite picture of her.

Yesterday  (as I was driving) she said, "Mom, where does my real dad live?" AT this point my brain was saying a thousand times over "whaat? who? … [Read more...]

An Interview With The Girls

The other day I recorded these short interviews with the two oldest girls. Don't worry, Princess Newbie makes a few cameos. At the end of the clip you'll hear her going into hysterics. No worries! She has developed a deathly fear of loveable little catepillars (our backyard is covered in them right now!) and she thought there was one sitting in the purple tub with her. But it was just a leaf that looked like a catepillar so crisis adverted. Have a great Saturday, a blessed Sunday and I'll see you guys on Monday. … [Read more...]
