Doing this weekend’s photo review a little differently… have to make my Project 365 deadline!
Every time I pick up Madeline from school, she runs into one of the classrooms to play teacher. To the point that she won’t respond until I call her “teacher.” “Teacher, it’s time to go.” No. “I think teachers are good listeners, especially to their mommies.” I’m not going. I don’t want to. And so it goes.
When I saw my Mom on Friday, she asked what naughty thing Madeline had managed to do. It was still early then, the day still young, and full of possibilities for trouble to get into. I should give her an alphabetized list.
My bed at 8 pm Saturday night. Every year, for as long as I can remember, I have stayed up by myself until the wee hours of Christmas morning, feverishly wrapping presents. Since I didn’t have the kids this weekend, I took advantage of it, and wrapped everything. Feels so good!
I am wondering if it’s a little vain for Santa to be wrapping presents with his picture plastered all over it, but I guess if anyone can get away with it, it’s him. And Santa, of course, has to use different paper than I do. I almost blew it when I was reviewing some pictures on my camera, and Nick was peering over my shoulder. Luckily I pulled it away just in time.
Madeline’s room, a work in progress. The walls are a similar color to a shade I had in two of the four master bedrooms I have had. Love it. It’s a completely different color several times during the day, depending on how the outside light hits it. Such a happy space, perfect for my happy girl.
