i <heart> hand-me-downs
...especially for kids clothes!
most things they barely get to wear before they grow out of them...
so each piece is still in great condition.

this WHOLE pile of clothes is stuff i got from a friend
who has a little boy a bit older than sbj!

 for $55 i got 55 shirts, pants and/or pjs!
when's the last time you could say that about a clothing purchase?

crazy house

if i go crazy,
check all the flat surfaces in the house.
if they look like this:
then that is probably the reason why.

it is so easy for things to get piled up...

luckily i have found that it doesnt really take that long
to get it straightened out.

so (for now) the counters are clear
and im not in the crazy house!

Friday Favorites: FIESTA!

i have decided to make Fridays my "Favorites" day....
i will post a picture of something that i am currently diggin'...

today it is my collection of Fiesta dishware!

i think they are

if one has not dined well."

sun spots

i love that howey always finds the one sunny spot in a room
(or on our bed).

i saw him there the other day and thought...
we should all try to find the sunny spot in life!

food fight

we have to choose our battles, right?
well, right now i choose NOT to fight with sbj about his eating.
no, this is NOT his plate BEFORE dinner...
it is his plate AFTER dinner.
(and the picture doesnt do the food justice, it is delish)
and yes, the only thing eaten off his plate is some 

what is up with this kid?

oh...but dont worry, he did eat...
3 bowls of mandarin oranges and strawberries...
fruit is better than nothing, right??

he has done this a few times before
so i am guessing that it is just a phase...
 i keep telling myself, if he is hungry he will eat...

i still have hope that he will grow up to be a good, healthy eater...
just not right now...

"bad" hair day

when sbj and i were getting ready to leave the other day,
my hubs actually said to me:
"are you going to do something with his hair?"
do you know me?
do i do anything with my hair?
what am i supposed to do with his hair?
it is crazy...
and i love it...
so, no.
not going to do anything with his hair.
it is fantastic just the way it is!

Bye Bye Baby

sbj took his last 2 papis (pacifiers)
to his 2 year check up today...
he gave them to his doctor,
to "give to the babies"
because he is a big boy now!

naptime was a bust, but so far so good on bedtime...
