Galoshes: I have been meaning to post about my most recent purchase of rubber foot attire for a while now! You know you live in a hick town when...! Since she's been able to walk Karys has always favored her rubber boots over all other shoes. So when we went to go get Daisy one day out of the garage and found that she had helped herself to the upper portion of Karys' beloved boots, we were all sad! Imagine my delight when husband-dear returned from shopping at Extra Foods one day in Sechelt and surprised me with these...
Never to be out-done by my daughter, I realized that with our return to hick-ville, and all the melting snow, there would inevitably be MUD! And recently purchased boots for the previous snow season would not stand up to the mucky on slot that awaited!
And in attempts to help Avery not feel left out, I couldn't resist a pair I saw when I visited our local (45 minute drive) version of Extra Foods - just call us the "gals with groovy galoshes!"
Changing her bity bum!
Getting ready for some num-nums!
Gallons of Laundry Detergent: Onto my last point of discussion! One that I am sure all mothers are intimately familiar with!! Now don't faint with shock or judge me to be some ??? but I am not a weekly-bedding-washer! I know, I should be and I am striving to get better, but it just never happens! I will go through a period when all things dirty are now clean and "this time I will stay on top of it all!" and then before I know it two weeks have gone by and bedding has been forgotten! So, I guess in attempts to help me remember, a certain someone has been making it necessary that I change her sheets daily! Not that I am complaining, but Avery has started sleeping through the night! And when a baby who only drinks milk - and a lot at that - goes long hours sleeping, it means she also goes long hours peeing and not being changed! So...every morning when I go in to get my bity bundle she, without fail, has peed through her jammies, sheet, and padding underneath! Needless to say, Tide has become a close friend as of late! So in ending my rant, I will never complain about a baby who sleeps 7-11-7-11, but if I could keep the bedding from getting a daily soaking, I'd just be able to get that much more of the other stuff done! Like getting these hung...
Cute wooded letters - cut from a piece of 1x8 - with fancy paper decoupaged over them, hung with twisted pieces of wraffia (sp??)! A bit different than Karys'...my first attempt:
Too bad I couldn't get a better close-up shot! The paper I used looks to be the same, but is totally different! K's are bright gingham pieces, and A's are muted pastel swirls!
It has to end sometime!! So I'll end this marathon post with a picture of the cutest shoes that are my personal favorite in Karys' collection!
Still trying to find a mommy-sized pair of these babies!
