Awhile ago I found this magnetic fairy tale book that is just too cool. It has about 5 fairy tales in in it. On one page is the story on the other is a magnetic picture. Then it has all these magnets of the characters for each story, so your little one can act out the story while you read it. So cute. Keely has been found of Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks since we got it. Then, Capello sent her a little Goldilocks book this weekend and today Keely says, "Let's play 3 bears mommy." Huh? What does that mean? She said, "We have to find 3 bears and a Goldilocks so we can play." Ah-ha. The two year old who wants to act out storylines. right. So, I found 3 bears, and 3 chairs and 3 beds and she got 3 bowls for porridge and then she ran back for their spoons. She decided she would be Goldilocks. I loosely read the story and she "acted" it out. Watch as the exciting story unfolds before you very eyes.
First the bears are trying to eat their porridge. Having no moveable limbs made this quite a feat, so dear Keely was kind enough to help them out. It was too hot, so they all went out for a walk in the woods (dining room, kitchen… whatever). Then, no longer Keely, "Goldilocks" seeing the bears have left runs in their house and tries out all the chairs
This girl has no fear. The bears are still RIGHT there and she is already slurping up all the porridge. Fearless and shameless. Then she goes to try out all of their beds. She was liking Poppa Bear's.
Momma Bear's was nice too, no interest in Baby Bear's at all. Instead, she insisted that all the Bears come back and go to sleep in their own beds and she would cuddle with Poppa Bear. She needed to "make him feel better because she ate all his porridge." There you have it ladies the greatest re-inactment of Goldilocks ever. So dramatic. Were you on the edge of your seat? She'll be performing in the Blue Room all this week.

This photo about says how I'm feeling about toddlerhood after the past 3 days. AH! See the slightly crazed look in the eyes? The crazy unwashed hair-do? The ratty pajama tee still on. Yep, that's right. Nutty, whack-a-doo, punk monkey, toddler days. I think the hubby is feeling the same. He also worked on my new wordpress blog. He is trying to customize it and move my archives. It is taking awhile. Let's see. I was trying to zone out for a bit and I started clicking NEXT BLOG and came across this weird little test. What kind of American English Do You Speak? I took it. It has like 15? questions and then tells you the breakdown of your language. I'm 50% normal Am. English and 25% Dixie etc. Dixie? really. My hubby was 40% normal and 35% Yankee. If you want a no brainer stupid thing to do…go take it. If you are not American it could be amusing to see what it tells you. Commercialism: On the music front, everytime we hear that Diet Coke commercial-you know the one with the chipper looking blonde girl on roller skates? She's drinking a coke and magic bubbles are floating all over and the song, "Starry Eyed Surprise"by Oakenfold plays? Well, we got that song downloaded and the husband plays it over and over and now the Keely wants to hear it over and over. Then, a week or so ago that Old Navy, stripes-all-around, commercial came on and then Friday Keely's says, "Want to hear Go Daddy-o". We knew what she was talking about so we downloaded that for her cd too. You can find it via here if you have any interest. So, all weekend we heard those two songs over and over and over. Oh help me. They are both happy, dancy songs…but shessh.

Here's my big weekend project: a two-toned bag. That's 3 bags in one week!!!! Whoa. I told you I do not have any coordinating fabrics so this is the best I could do. It kinda matches. I mean, no one is going to be staring at my bag especially since I don't go anywhere. Well..except you…don't stare, k? I had some issues with the two-toned thing. Measuring is not a skill of mine. Trying to make them all line up and be even. Oi! The lining is significantly smaller than the inside, but oh well. Looks like a bag to me. Next attempt at a bag will involve interfacing I guess. I have fear.
