Here's a slice of our life, organized in Leila and Rosie's categories for their Thursday roundup (pretty happy funny real).
These burpcloths are pretty. I made them for a new baby sweetie girl and delivered them along with a meal. To the right is some plaid (left from this shirt) that I used to make Ben a bowtie for my grandma's funeral. I do love those bowties: so easy to whip up and instant cuteness for Ben.
Last Thursday was a funny day. Ben was requested to dress as a favorite book character for school, and Genevieve was requested to dress crazy in support of anti-bullying school spirit. Yes, on the same day. Trying to coordinate this, plus get me out the door for my job was not funny.
Ben was Bananas Gorilla from Richard Scarry. His daddy helped him make four watches in addition to the two he already had, so he could wear three on each arm like Bananas Gorilla. Ben dressed in similar clothes to Bananas Gorilla and carried a bunch of bananas.
We had to explain the concept of "clash day" to Genevieve, which is kind of hilarious because she already wears the top-of-the-pile shirt with her red plaid skirt to madcap effect. Sometimes I make her change before I take her out in public. She totally owned this school spirit day!
Here is a real Lego creation from the Genevieve. Those people are standing in line at an ATM. Which niggles at me, because my husband and I rarely use ATMs and I can't imagine where she sees people standing in line for one. But there you have it: a 7-year-old's social observation.
Happy Thursday to you!
