Well, hello MARCH!! Nice to see you! Granted, I have no idea where February went, but I'm more than happy to welcome the arrival of March...seeing how the first day of SPRING should occur is just a couple weeks! I don't know about y'all, but I'm ready for some green! I shouldn't complain about the weather, but we're all in need of some outdoor activities! I think we've officially conquered every kid-friendly winter activity known to man...yes, that means we've finally found the end of Pinterest! Time for some dirt under the nails, mud on the boots, and the return of the beloved FLIP-FLOPS!!
Alright, enough of my rant! I know winter will end...it will!
So here's to another rendition of the Kids Were Here. A time when a group of us share some of our visual keepsakes that remind us that children are present in our everyday lives. The little things kids leave behind after a day of adventure and curiosity, and...as in our house...it's served with a side of chaos!
Often the snack combos around here may seem a little unusual...like Cheetos and strawberry marshmallows.
And the above cabinet has become a certain two-year old's secret hideaway, where we often find random toys and sippy cups full of spoiled milk!
One of our many activities this winter has revolved around building some sort of contraption...enter the world of Knex, Legos, Tinker Toys, and Lincoln Logs. Sometimes construction goes well, and sometimes...ummm...not even close! Knex pieces plus an accident prone child equals one giant "How in the world did that happen?" scenario! Yeah, that's a story for another day!
Then, you have the
millions gazillions of little tractors that grace our house, and let me tell you that stepping on a Lego in the middle of the night is nothing compared to the pain you'd endure after firmly placing your foot atop one of those tiny vehicles!
And I have NO idea why companies make the above easel with a chalkboard on one side and dry erase board on the other! 'Cause we all know that temptation is hard to resist...especially, for the random child who feels compelled to display his artwork on the chalkboard using a dry erase marker! Obviously, the engineers of this easel do not have children.
I'll leave you with an image that's ever to common around here. Some crafty tween is a lover of bling...and she often finds the need to accessorize the various rooms in our house. Bet you never noticed the resemblance of kitchen cabinet handles and ears. Of course, these handles were screaming for some sort of bling! It's all about the accessories!
