Today was the community Easter Egg Hunt. I took Lady Bug to gather eggs with the other children in the neighborhood. She had tons of fun running around in the grass at the park. I snapped a bunch of pictures of her looking for the hidden eggs.
The grass looked soo vibrant in all of the pictures. It reminded me of a time I went to visit family in Tennessee and saw a man spraying green onto the grass in front of a business. I thought it was pretty strange at first. Then I saw another person spraying the same green substance onto his front lawn. I appreciate a nice looking lawn, but I’ve never considered faking it with spray paint.
Today I found the cutest variety of area rugs for Lady Bug’s bedroom. There were not only rugs for little girls but also for little boys. They had an assortment of popular character rugs and adorable patterns and designs that would look lovely in and children’s room. With Lady Bug’s room being filled with princesses and ponies I went with one of the non character designs.
The rug I chose is a big circle about five feet in diameter. It is pink and purple and has stars and sparkles woven all through it. I think it will even fit her decor as she grows older unlike one of the character rugs. It’s nice to have a few pieces that you don’t have to change out every time you decorate a room again.
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.
Lady Bug came home from daycare day with a nifty little toy. Unfortunately, the darn thing did not batteries. Oh how I wish companies would just charge a little extra and include a set of batteries with their products. Young children, heck most adults too, like instant gratification. It’s no fun getting a new toy and not being able to play wit it the moment you take it out of the package.
I guess I have to run to the store tomorrow on my way home from work to pick up some batteries. I really should just buy a few packs of every kind. Hey! That’s an idea! A battery variety pack with more than one type. What parent couldn’t use some of those? They would be especially handy around Christmas time.
