I got nothing done this weekend, or last week either for that matter. Nothing. I was sort of in a stand still mode for several reasons. And how you ladies with more than one child ever get anything done I'll never know. I'm going to make this a quiet blog week in hopes of working on the monster holiday to-do list–but before I go chain myself to the sewing machine…
Keely, being calm and quiet on a Saturday morning. I had to take a photo so that I could remember that she is like this sometimes.
Slightly unrelated: We've got a collection of Childcraft books that I recently found for .45 each. She is in love with reading all the short nursery rhymes in a few of them. Every night we have to sit together and read them, over and over. The illustrations are quite cute and most of the stories/rhymes are your traditional ones, but there are a few that are just odd.
"This is the story of Freddie my friend. Who ran into traffic and that is the end." Ha. My hubby and I are still chuckling over that one.
I've always thought a lot of nursery rhymes were mean and a little inappropriate for small children-not having messages I'd want to teach my babe. You know, like The Old Woman Who Lived In a Shoe– She had so many children she didn't know what to do, so she whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed. Sweet. I know that many were written to warn children of what would happen to them if they dared to disobey and all, but sheesh. Another nice one- "Goosey, Goosey Gander, wither shall I wander. Blah, blah, blah,…I met a man who wouldn't say his prayers. I took him by the left leg and threw him down the stairs." Okaaaay then. That's great. Nice message there.
See now, I sit here to type a couple lines and there I go blathering away. I'm leaving now. Hope you all have a bright week. I'm not going to post again until I accomplish something!
