I've been meaning to update. We had such beautiful weather there for a couple days that we spent ourselves spending alot of time outside!!! So nice! But now we are back to having more snow, boo! I guess there is a plus and a minus to the cold weather though. I hate the cold and all but I took for granted the lack of allergies. Both my son and I have had sneezes and sniffles. He was crying last night b/c his nose was so raw it hurt. My poor baby! I decided to make him his pathetic sick baby tissues. He loves mickey Mouse, so I just had to make it extra special. I even made him some soft organic bamboo velour tissues.
I also think I happened across something very neat! Getting flowers from my husband is few and far between. So I like to clip the flowers and keep them as a little keepsake. I end up having lots of flowers and forgetting when each one was from... which sorta takes away from the special keepsake memory. I remembered reading before on a blog of a mother talking about ways to entertain a kiddo in a shopping center. Give them a banana and a pencil and let them draw on the banana. By the time you are done shopping the marks on the banana will be a dark brown with the bruising and very visible for your kiddo. Well, why wouldn't this work with a flower stem???
above picture is the initial writing I did and the below picture was taken just a few hours later. It bruised and indented in a bit....like I used a soder on the stem lol (I used just a pencil to write on it)
Very cool IMO, I hope it stays like that even after the flower has fully dried out and the stem browns. I will have to update my pictures once it does ;)
I finished my son's art area mat and smock. I'll have to get pictures soon!
