…and no, I’m not referring to the dog grooming/bathing equipment. LOL I’m talking about the most beautiful girl in the world, who just happens to be in the bath.
Last time I posted a truly mundane photograph (I believe it was of our refillable slurpee cups) I got a comment on facebook that read something like: “I can’t believe you blogged that”. LOL Well, they can’t all be winners. And today is no exception. I’m tired. We had a good day. But I’ve just got a lot going on right now… and nabbing a photo just wasn’t a priority.
So, fast forward to this particular moment, and I’ve got the wee girlie fast asleep beside me. I’m laying in bed. Grab the netbook from next to the bed, and realize I don’t have anything to share. Looking around, I see the wee girlie’s clothes hanging on the rod that extends between the supporting legs of her loft bed (yes she has her own bed – a loft above ours – and yes, she is in bed with me anyway… I don’t mind, so neither should you. LOL) So what do I take a picture of? The girlie’s shirts.
Like I said… they can’t all be winners. LMAO
Sometimes life is found in the boring details. And the wee girlie’s “closet” (in quotations because it’s not really a closet, but that’s what I call it anyway) is an inspired detail that makes our small house work better for us. We don’t have space for three dressers… So the girlie doesn’t have one. Lily-Ann has this space that was created when we built her loft bed. It’s got two fabric organizers that hang from the pole. One holds pants and pjs, the other holds things like socks, undies, leg warmers, and odds and ends. The shirts and jumpers get hung on the pole. It’s right beside my side of the bed, and makes finding her clothes super quick and easy. I love it. 🙂
There you go. A look into one of the mundane details you never thought you’d know (or care to know) about my life. LOL Funny the types of things you’ll stumble upon in a Project 365 blog.
Be good to one another, and I’ll do my best to have something less ordinary to share tomorrow. 😉
The wee girlie and I watched The Last Unicorn this morning. It’s a mutual favourite. 🙂 Then, this afternoon, when we were getting ready to head out to see Pop Pop and Grams (my parents), she said she wanted to wear sparkles to look like the Lady Almalthea. When I asked her if she’d like a star on her forehead just like Almalthea, Lily-Ann couldn’t have been more excited. So she sat very still while I penciled, painted, then sparkled it in – four layers to be exact, to ensure it didn’t smudge or get icky on her. And then she proudly showed it off to everyone we encountered. LOL But first she posed (with her Pride flag) so I could take a picture of her pretty unicorn star… and she did her very best to look Almalthea-ish.
Hey everyone! Today I have another freebie for you. It’s a scrapbook page border featuring several definitions of the word “family”.
The image is linked, so just click it to download.
As a Warren at ESS I host the definition challenge each month. So hop on over and play with us. You can earn up to five points by playing along, and your points can earn you a free gift certificate for the store there. As a bonus this month? I created TWO free downloads for you. So you can get the border that I’ve posted here, AND a frame as well (but you have to visit ESS for that one).
Can’t wait to see what you do with them.
OH! Don’t forget, in your design credits, list my WordArt as a “Scraptastic Design by TD”. Thanks.
Here’s the wee girlie on her Pop Pop’s computer… playing on Mommy’s facebook account. She’s got a virtual pet on there named Sagee-gee (yes she named him herself). He’s a little piggie who changes colour most every day, changes outfits regularly, and loves decorating his four rooms. He loves battling his friends, but is too competitive to race (he doesn’t like to lose, or is it that the wee girlie gets mad when she loses a race… hmmmm….). If you and I are “friends” on FB, and you’d like to play with the wee girlie, let me know and I’ll send you a game invite. 😉
A lack of acceptance begins in childhood, when we teach our toddlers that there are boys and girls. We set our children up for feelings of inadequacy or worse… There are a myriad of genders, and all are natural, normal, and beautiful. Why teach our children anything different?
I hope you’ll take time to read the blog post below. It’s well worth your time and consideration.
