Hello my dear friends in Blogland!!!! Thanks for dashing by. Oh, how I missed you all. I'm back after a very long hiatus. Partly because I've been busy (I got lazy) and partly by no control of my own when my computer crashed. But mainly because I've been spending more time with my 80+ year old parents. I'm part of the "sandwich" generation. I'll have to say though, it's easier to take care of my parents than it is to take care of my kids. While my parents require a lot of quiet relaxation and conversations over cookies and tea with soft music in the background, my kids, on the other hand, require a lot of running, heart pounding rock climbing, thrilling roller coaster riding, sweating, screaming...etc., etc.
I've been gone so long and I have missed so much from your posts, I have a lot of catching up to do.
For my first post back I have a very simple and inexpensive but fun project. It only took me a few minutes and made a world of difference to my little one. I purchased a backpack for my son but I miscalculated what's cool and not so cool in his little world. Last week he liked Winnie the Pooh....today?.....not so much!
I bought this backpack for my little one but as soon as he saw it he said, "mom, you must be kidding! I'm too old for Winnie the Pooh".....oooookay........never mind that just last week he begged me to read him a Winnie the Pooh book.
With my busy life, I was not about to return it and spend another eight hours looking for another one. I'm a cool mom, not a crazy one.
After a trip to Joann's, he picked out some fabric he liked. I also picked up some contact paper and some hot glue sticks.
Thanks for visiting. I cannot wait to come over and look at what you've been working on while I've been gone. Although I will not be posting as often as I used to, I have a ton of projects lined up and cannot wait to show them to you.
