Jason was really psyched when the new rocktron all access from musicians friend arrived, but he was really angry when Stephie’s dog chewed up the instruction manual that came with it. I don’t know how many times I’ve warned them not to leave papers lying around on the floor! Maybe now they’ll start to pay closer attention to my warnings and pick up after themselves a little bit better. In the meantime, I’ve gone online and found a replacement instruction manual that we could print off online. Thank goodness for the Internet – it has saved the day again!
Ladybug and I gave each other manicures today. I let her pick out whatever color she wanted to use. We used her new Strawberry Shortcake nail polish set. She painted my nails the light bright pink and put yellow polk-a-dots. I let her use one of my dotting tools to add the little polk-a-dot shapes. She had soo much fun that she asked if she could do my toes too! She painted my toes dark pink and put green dots on the corner of each nail. She’s soo creative. This isn’t the normal polish designs I could wear to work so good thing it’s a holiday weekend.
When I went to paint her toes she kept giggling because the toe separates were tickling her feet. It took me awhile to get her to settle down but eventually she did. I painted her toes the dark pink color and added light oink flowers with a yellow center. Her fingers were done in the light pink color with green polk-a-dots. We had soo much fun painting each others’ fingers and toes that I think we might make this a regular mommy daughter date at least once a month.
Right as you walk in my house I have a table that sits in the entry way. On the table is a small wicker basket that I always put my keys in as soon as I walk in the door. This simple little routine saves me a lot of time and headaches when it comes time to leave the house. I don’t have to spend forever searching for my keys or trying to remember where I may have seen them last.
Well, last night I got stuck in traffic and it took me a little longer than usual to get home. I ran straight to the bathroom as soon as I arrived and didn’t stop for anything… not even to put my keys down. Silly me took the keys and set them on the back of the toilet. It took me a good thirty minutes to find them when I went to leave for work this morning.
Moral of the story… ALWAYS put your keys in the same place every day to prevent losing your mind.
After getting Lady Bug a new furniture and bedding set for her room it just wouldn’t be complete without new paint. I spent the weekend with my neighbor painting and decorating Lady Bug’s room. We emptied the whole room out and put everything in my living room. I laid tarps down to prevent and messes on the carpet. My neighbor worked on taping off baseboards and outlets.
We chose a nice lavender to go along all of the bottom half of the walls. We then painted the top half a medium shade of princess pink. Because Lady Bug’s new theme is Princess Pony I got some wallpaper boarders with both characters. I cut them into sections and alternated them around the room along the paint seem in the middle of the walls. We painted all of the baseboards and window trim white to match the new furniture.
It took us most of the day to do the paint. We let it dry over night. Lady Bug slept in my room on Saturday because I didn’t want her to breathe in all of the fumes from the paint. On Sunday we applied the wallpaper boarders. Once that was set we brought back in the furniture and made the bed. Everything was perfect! Lady Bug had a HUGE smile on her face when she saw her completed room. It feels good to make my little girl happy.
There are some really funny kids movies out. I love the way there are different levels of humor in the movies, so that children find funny things but there are also funny moments for adult level humor. One of my favorite kids movies is called, Up. This movie is funny in so many different ways. I have watched it several times and every time I see it again I notice little things that I hadn’t noticed before.
