"It's a heart mommy!" It really a flower petal. Cute, huh?
Thank you all for your co-sleeping stories. I was so happy to hear that so many of you have and/or do sleep with your babes. I like thinking of snuggly little ones snoozing with their parents all warm and safe. Good stuff!
Well, it's Friday all. Hope you all have a dandy weekend.

ANOTHER goodie box in the mail! Two in one week! I am unworthy.
This lovely package arrived from sweet Tasha
today. Let's take a peak at the yummy stuff, shall we? First, holy fabric Batman! Tasha, you did so good with my taste. I love them all. The polka dots make me happy, happy, and the little purses, oh and the novelty Hula girls. LOVE IT! She also included sweets for my sweet and the cutest little stool for Keely. Now, the word is out about my love of wee chairs. Keely snagged the stool away and claimed it was a table for her bunnies tea parties. Well, ok then. I guess she likes it. And Tasha, that was some cute
tissue paper you used to wrap it all up. It has little ladybugs all over it. You are too kind and I am very greatful. I am going to wrap myself in polka dots now and smile.

This week I got this cool dry erase stand. The other side is a chalkboard. It was $6. It had writing all over it, so I was sure that it was some sort of permanent pen and that is why it was at the thrift store. I thought about it and then I recalled my teaching days. The principal had ordered an enormous and expensive dry-erase board and book stand combo. One day I was letting a few kids right on it (with dry-erase markers of course). I looked up from my reading group and saw that a student had taken a Sharpie from my desk and was using it to write spelling words! I jumped up, too late, to see the damage. I was freaking out on the inside. I went around secretively asking other teachers how to remove a freakin' permanent Sharpie from the new board. Most teachers sighed and shrugged, but one lady handed me a bottle of fingernail polish remover. I ran to my room and I was so relieved that it worked. So, today I bought this board and washed it off with water and most of the ink was not coming off as suspected, so I got the F.N.P. remover and sha-blam! off it all came. Wonderful. So you all remember that little teacher tip. K? k. It doesn't work so well on chalkboards though. It kinda makes it dull, still useable though.
Also, I got those like new, but obviously old pinking shears. My mom gave me a pair a few months ago and I want those to use for paper. This pair will be for fabric. groovy. Those puppies are heavy and hard to use!
