Who Loves to Craft?

owl craft for kids

Knock Knock. Who's there?  Owl Craft for kids. Whooo? Crafting project for kids. Whooooo? Basically I've decided that talking to an owl is exactly like talking to kids. You say one thing and they say "who?" or "what?".  Kids might not be the best at listening purposefully but they are amazing at what they can do when you give them craft supplies. The other morning I woke up to find that my daughter had made clothes for all her stuffed animals using my fabric stash. After I hyperventilated from seeing my coveted fabric stash cut into tiny little pieces, I … [Read more...]

Good (YAWN) Morning

Sometimes I like to go through the old posts from the past few years. I laugh at the funny pictures, cry at the pictures where my kids still look like babies (I miss it!) and rejoice over the fact that the word "potty training" has now been stricken from our family's vocabulary. Last night I was going through old posts from October of last year and I found this old post that you're about to read. It was perfect. Do you know what it was perfect? Because it shows that almost one year ago to the day I experienced a type of ground hog day scenario. Ok so I haven't spilled coffee on my feet … [Read more...]

Fresh Catch of the Day

Imagine this.... You hear footsteps on the stairs early in the morning and you know by the timing of them that it's just the oldest child, the early bird of the family, who will get her own breakfast and entertain herself while you lay in bed for awhile longer. So you cozy up against your pillow again ready to cat nap until the little one gets up when you hear "MOM! Oreo is eating Toby!". Now I know that doesn't seem so heart pounding until you realize that Oreo is our cat and Toby is was our fish.  In all honesty, Toby should have been a cat.  He's had 9 lives and then … [Read more...]

Costumes, Candy and Cheesecake

Flower Pot Costume from The Dollar Store

On October 1st my oldest child looked at me and said "only 30 days until Halloween!".   I looked at the calendar and groaned.  I'm pretty sure my friend Nicki Woo looked at the calendar and did somersaults in her front yard while trying not to smash her giant spider yard decorations. Personally I'm not a big fan of Halloween.  Just to be truthful, I'd rather replace that day on the calendar with a better holiday such as National Cheesecake Day where instead of parade around in costumes, we just make (and eat) cheesecakes.  Who's with me? But... it happens … [Read more...]
