I've made the first step......

outside of my comfort zone today.

I'm not sure why I am agonizing so much over this, but I am.

I want to sell some of the things I've made. But my personality needs to take baby steps. I want to do some craft fairs, etc. but am unsure of the best way to do it all.

I've sold a few things I've made to friends. But today, I gave a few of my things to a friend to add to her beach booth to sell.

I did take pictures of the items I've cranked out the last few days and I'm posting them here to share them with my friends who have been my constant cheerleaders.


Here's what I put out:
(the pictures fail to pick up many of the details making the dress :)

Babygirl sized pink tutu

Little girl sized Purple/White/Lt.Pink Fairy Tutu

Three crayon roll ups

Babygirl sized pillowcase dress

big girl sized pillowcase dress (bad picture: blue pinstriped dress)

Thanks to all who are so encouraging and I promise my neurotic tendencies will lessen over time.........(*at least until the next obsession)

To Represent or NOT

It's the first day of school and my kids are representin' the SHORES~~~~

Bugaboo is gonna dominate 8th grade.

Chickiepoo is gonna rock 6th grade.

Boobear is gonna rule 4th grade.

And bunnyboo is trying to figure out her allegiance.

Forget it.........she'll just stay home with me.

It's over.........

Summer is over.

We've just returned from a family beach vacation and the kids start school next week.

I'm hoping my bloggy mojo comes back then too.

Don't you?

Wait, don't answer that.
PS: does anyone else think feet are ugly?

Capturing Time


It goes too fast.

Look how long it's been since I've last posted? See what I mean.

I've been feeling those warm feelings of completely loving someone.

Bunnyboo's vocabulary has exploded the last 6 months. I love how she says certain words and how she phrases things so they make sense in her world.

Lately, whenever she hears a noise, she'll turn to me with one hand over an ear and ask......

"What's that noise about?"

I swear I could eat her up at these moments.

Which reminded me of my other kids most memorable phrases.

Boobear used to get the word structure mixed up. When he meant although or wanted to use the word but ~ he would INSTEAD tack but/though on the end. As one word.

Like: " I really wanted to ride my bike, but/though."

And chickiepoo would say "hairpoo" instead of shampoo. I loved hearing her little girl voice say it and would try to get her to say it as many times as I could.

But my oldest, bugaboo? I can't remember ONE specific example.

And I'm heartbroken over it.

I've been racking my memories for days. Nothing.

Was it because he had some severe speech issues and being a first time mom I couldn't relax enough to separate what was normal from problematic? I'm not sure.

It took me more than a day to remember EXACTLY what boobear said. So maybe it's just the old mommy mind at play.

I am returning to my blog long enough to record these memories and hope to add more.

I refuse to not capture those words that fill me with love, but/though.

(All pictures capture each child around 2 years old)
