Water On The Floor

This morning while my son was sleeping my daughter was helping me with getting some yard sale items priced. We each had our coasters and drinks sitting on the floor beside us. I had my Pepsi and she had some ice water.

Well, of course with kids something gets knocked over and sure enough it was her cup. Thankfully it was just water. No worries. She got a hand towel and dried it all up. No big deal. All taken care of.

Later in the morning my son was up and the kids were on the move. In the course of them going from room to room, my daughter's new cup of ice water got knocked over. Yes, that makes twice in one morning! Again, thankfully it was just water. No worries.

I told my daughter to just get a towel and dry it up. My son who is two and a half saw the water and said, "Ooops." He then took off to the bathroom. A few seconds later he came back in with something to help clean up the water. In his hand were three squares of toilet paper.

Now toilet paper wasn't going to get the job done but bless his little heart for trying to help! I thought it was such a cute moment that I just had to write about it! Hope it brought a smile to your face reading about it!

Reading Stories

I was in the process of replying to a conversation in my Etsy shop when my little boy started crying. He was waking up for the day so I went in and got him out of his crib. We sat down in the rocking chair in his room and he spotted the stack of books.

He got up and picked one out. We read it and I said "the end". I closed the book and he took it to put it back. I started to get up to move the chair off to the side because when we rock him at night we have to pull it out a bit from the wall. When I got up to move the chair he started whining because he thought I was leaving the room. He had picked out another book to read. I sat back down and we read his next choice.

While he was putting the second book away I hurried and put the chair back where we keep it during the day. He then came back with another story to read. We ended up sitting in his room this morning and read 9 stories.

I'm so glad he enjoys having stories read to him! My daughter always did too! Now she is an avid reader and does so well with it. She reads about two grade levels above her age which is great! Reading is such a wonderful hobby for children to have in my opinion!

Just Think

Just think.
You're here not by chance but by God's choosing.
His hand formed you and made you the person you are.
He compares you to no one else- you are one of a kind.
You lack nothing that His grace can't give you.
He has allowed you to be here at this time in history
to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.

Daily Blogging

Lately I've been thinking that I would really love to get back into posting a blog once a day like I used to do. Then I thought, "Wonder if anyone even still reads my blog?" I currently have 73 followers but have no idea how many of them actually still truly follow anymore.

Sooooooooooooooooo.....................if you still read my blog posts please leave a comment so I'll know! I've got some fun things in mind to write about that I think people might enjoy reading but before I start posting everyday again I'm interested to see if anyone is going to be reading!

Pink Picks By A 7 Year Old

Recently I've been having a lot of fun making treasuries and watching to see how close to page 1 they get. Well, my 7 year old daughter has enjoyed this too. She's enjoyed it so much that she had been asking to make a pink treasury. We sat down tonight and put together one. She picked out each item in the treasury and even had control of the mouse part of the time. She decided to choose pink from shops that we have made purchases from.

Please be sure to stop in and leave a comment and all 16 of your clicks! Also, please be sure to share the link on facebook, twitter, and all your teams. Tell everyone to leave a comment and use all 16 of their clicks too! Let's see if we can get her pink treasury to page 1! She'll be thrilled if it makes it! I'm sure she will be watching to see what page it is on. Plus page 1 could be GREAT exposure for all those featured!

For your viewing pleasure:

Enjoy! And thanks so much for helping to promote it! Muuaah!
