We went to Staten Island again . . .

For another birthday party. Cousin Kayla turned two. After a few hours, we were rained out. So, after everyone ran off to their cars, we went home too.

But, before we did, we ran around in the water.

 

We played in the water.

 

We made cool and silly crafts.

 


We wished Kayla a Happy Birthday.

 

Then, we went home.

We're off to Kindergarten,

 

Good-bye to nursery school . . .

[Sing to the tune of "We're off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz . . . "]

 

I guess Dorothy is coming along too.

 

There seems to be a big group headed to Kindergarten.

As you can guess, The Wizard of Oz was the theme.

And, we were all crying tears at some point.

One of the best days ever!

Congratulations, Faith!

 

You are a preschool graduate!

This is the very cute card that the girls from work gave me. Along with a giant cookie.

Today was my last day there.

I didn't ever tell you . . . but, I worked at Bath & Body Works.

I've very glad to say good-bye to BBW . . . lucky to say good-bye.

But, I will miss the people that I worked with . . . basically, the other three managers . . . I will miss them.

We are already planning our get-togethers.

Wish me luck . . . and, say some prayers.

I start the new job on Monday.

Relatively Good News . . .

Was shared with me this evening.

After asking my husband if he has been putting Elijah on the toilet before his baths, my husband says "Oh, he sort of went on the toilet last night. Only he got it down his leg too."

I was all "he went on the toilet?!?!"

"You didn't tell me."

"Well, he just wasn't able to get it all into the toilet."

[BTW, huge dilemna . . . how the hell do you get the wee-wee (penis) to stay in the right direction?!?!]

After calling Elijah to me, I was hugging him. And, asking him about it.

Elijah confirmed it.

Of course, when I went to give him a bath, I also tried to get him on the toilet.

And, of course, this time he only sunk his butt into the toilet water.

[BTW, so gross!!!]

Which, of course, he has done for me every time that I have attempted to get him on the toilet.

Perhaps he was just confused a bit . . . since I am hardly ever the one to bathe him.

Yeah.

Of course.

That's it!

My Newest Thangs . . .

Well, since I'm all over iTunes, I just absolutely love that I get access to all this great music that is new and original . . . at least, to me, it is new and original.

So, recently, since I'm all country and bluegrass these days, I've downloaded Chris Thile, Crooked Still, and Lori McKenna.

Regarding Crooked Still, I really love the name of this group. The words allow me to think it's ok to embrace my imperfections . . . to know it's ok to just suck at life sometimes. Whether I'm being the mom, the wife, or the friend. After all the trying, I'm "crooked still" and that's ok.

That's where I am musically.

Also, I'm reading again . . . catching up on a little bit of children's literature. Yesterday, I read "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory". Tomorrow, I plan to read "Matilda" while I'm home with the kids. All by Roald Dahl.

This new fascination with Roald Dahl might also have something to do with my increasing like of Johnny Depp. I'm finally getting it!! :)

Don't worry--I have my adult reading to catch up . . . I've set some goals for myself.

Before I can buy another book from Amazon, I have to get some reading done!

How else can I justify another purchase?!? :)

The other thing that I'm absolutely crazy for is this site.

Kelly Rae Roberts is my newest inspiration . . . if only . . . if only, I could express myself so beautifully.

So, I want to do art. I want to Make Art.

And, I want to play guitar.

And, while I'm imagining this all in my mind, I'm also in the process of changing jobs.

So, wish me luck on all my future endeavors. :)
