Funny Kids Funny Words

 (cute as ever)

Body Parts

(interaction between me and the Irish Twins)
Vicbowin: Mom! He called me a bumper.
Me to Albowin: You can't go around calling people bumpers...that is a bad word!

Translation: Bumper is butt.

Me: Baby, where did you put that paper?
The Mischievite: Ober dere (over there).
Me: Over where?
The Mischievite: In your bum.
Me: Not funny.
The Mischievite (giggling): Yes, it i-i-is.


The Mischievite: Me put my feet in the mud?
Me: Sure if you want, just don't come onto the carpet after.
The Mischievite: Me can? And my hands?
Me: Sure.
The Mischievite: And my shirt?!

The what of who I am

Vicbowin: You know, I'm not going to act like a girly girl anymore. I'm just gonna act like myself.
Me: How do girly girls act?
Vicbowin: They chase boys and I don't like to chase boys... except for G. because he chases me back.

(After winning a raffle prize)

Albowin: I think people must like me because I have glasses.

Dangerous Places

The Mischievite: Me no go to the park alone?
Me: Nope, you stay in the yard, okay.
The Mischievite: Me no go to the park alone, cause then I'd die.

The Mischievite (in tears): Me go to the libwawy too!
Me: No, you can't go to the library without mom, honey.
The Mischievite: Cause then I'd die?

Me: Baby, you need to pick up this stuff when you're done playing with it or your sister could put it in her mouth.
The Miscievite: Mm-Hmm. She put it in her mouth and then she'd die.

My kids always come up with the funniest things. I love writing them down.

My Mischievite is definitely obsessed with death right now, but I've learned that at his age it's fairly common, at least in my house. I don't think he understands what it means.

Too funny. I love the mud one! One day M might go somewhere alone and not die and then he won't believe anything you taught! J/K

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.

Mutterings of a Middle-Aged Dreamer

Use your words, my dear sweet soul, they are inside of you... So find them. Write, you silly girl, write so hard the world will never forget you.
But does it matter if the world remembers you? 
Age begins to press its hands upon your chest and the need to be remembered seems to increase with the pressure. 
That's not a line of thought you're interested in pursuing. 
Live in the now.
Does it matter if the world remembers you if your neighbor is going hungry? 
Perhaps age is merely pushing you out the door. 
Go. Live in the now.
