Some of Life's Lessons...

Apparently with some children a warning to the dangers of Silly Putty and one's hair doesn't quite drive the lesson home like direct experience.


She was a trooper while we worked on saving as much of the involved hair as possible. The offending Silly Putty, has been introduced to the trash can.

Ah motherhood...how you make me laugh.

Is this the sort of thing which peanut butter helps remove?

The little one does not look happy. Is this what I have to look forward to? If so, it looks kinda fun. ;)

Aw...what a sad little face. I remember doing this with bubblegum...and the resultant pixie cut. ;-)

oh my... this reminds me of my little sister's fifth birthday party, where she went with a chopped hair-job because she had taken a pair of scissors and cut the entire front "bang" portion of her hair to the scalp. My mom nearly died, and the photos from the birthday are hilarious. :)

DIY: Reusable Produce Bags

With Earth Day festivities gearing up for tomorrow, I thought I'd take a moment to post a short DIY tutorial on making your own reusable cloth produce bags. (Tutorial inspired by my favorite crafty mom blog, Crazy Mom Quilts. Produce bags inspired by running into my friend Laura at the grocery store while she was stuffing her produce into these.) This is my next step in the fight against the excessive use of plastic bags.

Our family has been making small environmentally minded changes in our daily lives over the past few years. We use reusable shopping bags. We've stopped buying/using Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. I'm trying to commute around town via bike more. I'm being more mindful about where the food we buy comes from and how it was produced. We more often hang our laundry on the line to dry in the spring and summer instead of just throwing it in the dryer. (Which is convenient at the moment since our dryer has decided to quit drying.) As we use up chemically clean…

Senseless...

Today while I sat in a classroom supervising students as they worked on their math assignments, I watched Lexi through the window enjoying time with her friends during recess. My heart smiled.

Those moments, moments of learning and carefree fun, those are the moments that SHOULD make up a school day. As a Mom, and an elementary school employee, my heart is breaking over the news and images coming out of Connecticut today. 
I send my kids off to school everyday without a second thought that they will return safely come day's end, just as I'm sure each one of those parents in Newtown did this morning.
Every day I walk into my school for work without a second thought to my personal safety, just as I'm sure each of those teachers, paras, custodians, sectretaries, etc in Newtown did this morning. 
Theories will be published. Evidence will be presented. Words will be exchanged about gun control and the need for change in our current culture of violence. I don't suspec…

Sunday Morning Silly...

Once in a while Dando's curiosity urges him to venture off the bookshelf so he check out other toys in the house.




I think he thinks Froggy is missing a few marbles.
