Kids Say the Darndest Things

9/9
Son (5 year old) before school one day:

Mom: "You love Dad, huh?"

Son: "Yeah, except he makes me do chores, then I don't."

Mom: "But he plays Starcraft with you sometimes, then do you love him."

Son: "Well, yeah, but Starcraft is so hard."

Daughter at the doctor's office:

"Dr. K is a nice doctor and he's really good at his job. I bet he's a good painter too."

My daughter, after she started a topic on politics (she's 6):


Mom: "Well, I don't know about Obama, because I just don't feel right voting for someone who is okay with abortion."

Child: "What's abortion."

Awkward silence.

Dad: "It's when someone kills the baby inside the mommy's tummy."

Child: *Gasp* "Auntie is going to vote for Obama!"

Mom (and auntie's sarcastic older sister): "Why don't you call her and tell her how you feel about that?"

Child: "I will."

Mom and Dad then proceeded to laugh hysterically in the next room as Auntie tries to explain why she'd vote for a person who 'kills babies.'*

*That would be the 6 year old's words.

7/24
A child at my nieces bus stop:


Child: "My brother is mean, he's always getting me in trouble."

My sister: "Yeah, I'm sorry about that."

Child (hanging his head): "I wish I was single again."


My daughter, listening to my iPod:

In a very loud voice: "Mom, there's a lot of people named Unknown Artist."


Again my daughter after watching her dad and I kiss:

"Some people call those messy kisses, or saliva kisses. They think they're gross, but I think they are so sweet."


And last one by my daughter:

"Mom, can you tell me how clouds are made? I mean what's their life-cycle?"

I love when you post your kid's quotes. They are so funny.

My kid doesn't talk just yet, but I say the darndest things to her.

"Hannah! Quit licking the dishwasher!"

And many others related to licking gross things. Floor. Rocks. Window sill...

My newest one is with Megan when we were at church last Sunday.
Megan looks at my stomach, leans over and says "mom I really think you are going to have a baby." I kind of laugh and say, "no it is just food." Then she pinches my stomach and says "yep I think I feel a leg."

LOL! Kids are so funny. I had a little girl ask me if I was going to have another baby the other day. I said no and she says, 'well it looks like it'

*groan* guess I better get back on that diet bandwagon. ;)

Boston is such a cutie!

Adalyn is full of little comments lately that keep me laughing. Yesterday I asked her if she wanted to go outside and play in the water and she said "And get baptized?"

How cute! I love what little people say and do.

And Boston just blows us away sometimes. We bought a Scholastic Illustrated Dictionary at a garage sale last weekend and the girl has been reading it! Yes, yes, my daughter reads the dictionary.

Then she says things that make us just gape at one another, like, "Did you know that blood isn't a liquid? It's lots and lots of tiny red blood cells."

Did you know that? I didn't? I mean I guess if I thought about it makes sense but she's 6 for heaven's sake! Shouldn't I know a little more than her!

I love them all. Especially the Obama one. Kids are smarter than people give them credit for. ;)

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.


I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
