These are the most blooms I have seen on my little violet. I love her. Isn't she lovely?

She Gets It From Her Mama

I'm afraid the crazy gene was dominant from both me and Berg. Wish us luck...


A Day In The Life

...you really can't take me anywhere.

Gumbo

...the magic baboon. He's got a little hat and guitar already but I don't have the pic yet. I love him so much already. I want to know his story, but so far he ain't talkin.

Kinetic Sand

Monday, May 06, 2019

The lighting is bad but can you see the giant goose-egg on Kindred's head? I am not exaggerating when I say that a tablespoon's worth of kinetic sand has rendered 3 rooms in my house almost impassible. The stuff hits the floor and becomes like ice, it is sooo slick. I had already swept and even mopped because I kept slipping every time I came through my kitchen (which was the original site, but it soon spread to my bedroom & living room) but Kindred still slipped and hit her head on the floor. Violently. A large goose-egg popped up almost immediately. I have blacklisted kinetic sand because this isn't the first time this has happened and, frankly, I think the stuff is dangerous when playtime is over. If your child is ever gifted the stuff...heed my warning!!

Dad

Sunday, May 05, 2019

I remind him to take care of himself and maybe not do reckless stuff.
He reminds me to enjoy my life and not stay wound so tight.

We are both a work in progress.

The Virgo & the Sagittarius, with more beliefs & magic in common than either of us ever knew.

He cracks me up and tells me to be brave.


In this time of rampant toxic masculinity, he sets an excellent example for Kindred & Dylan. He is supportive of women and is a gentle soul. I never have to worry about hearing something racist or misogynistic or homophobic come from him. He believes in teaching the children well and he does that by example. His views on religion and politics are surprising for someone who drives a Harley and loves Lynyrd Skynyrd.

He will never send me a normal text message, but deciphering them is half the fun.

I'm so grateful that he's my dad.

BFFs 4-Ever

Friday, May 03, 2019

It is sooooooooooo good to have my adventuring partner back. I missed her so much last year. We are thrifting, doing nature trails, and just hanging out at home. It makes me soooooooooo happy.


And, it is such a blessing...truly a blessing...to see Kindred and Naiya forge their own friendship and grow closer this year.

The Car Wash

She loves it. I don't know why I'd ever spend the money on Disney World when the car wash down the street makes her this happy.

Mama Drama

Do we ever stop gripping the dashboard and pumping the imaginary brakes, mamas?
