Things I know – sandbox

things i knowthingsi know- sandbox1- Rose loves the sand at the park. She will play the majority of the time there so now that we have a back yard I ask myself do I want to put a sand box out back? Do I want sand to make its way into the house? Do I want Rose to love playing outside in it? Would it become a hostel for all the creepy crawly biting things out there? plans for that sandbox

2- Thank goodness for YouTube. As a newbie at home improvement it has come in really handy.

3- I am leaning towards this color to paint first. But I am stuck as to which room to start with and I know rose will be all about helping. Painting is my relaxing quiet time so I am not sure if I want/could handle her help. It might get to messy literally and figuratively.

4- While pulling weeds in my back yard I found a distinct leaf shaped weed growing. Sure hope it is the non useful kind of weed and not the illegal one.

Charlie 1/25

Year 1 week 25

– If anything happens in his diaper he will let you know by telling you poops. This is helpful except when we are on a long car ride and he tells you he pooped when it was only wets. It is a little boy crying wolf situation.

– Charlie stood by himself this week. He was preoccupied with looking around the children’s museum that he allowed himself to stand alone for a whole 30 seconds.

Rose 4/21

Year 4 week 21

– Rose has learned that sometimes people get old and their batteries run out.

– For breakfast there is only one flavor of yogurt that Rose likes, peach. She will pull every cup out of the box to find that last peach one. 

Charlie 1/23

Year 1 Week 23


– Barbra Ann by the Beach Boys is Charlie’s favorite song. We discovered on our long road trips that he likes to sing the b’s and clap along.

– While getting ready to sleep in the same bed with Charlie I learned by personal pain that he will be so excited that he will head butt you right in the nose.

Rose 4/20

Year 4 Week 20

Year4 week20

– Playing in Grandma and Grandpa’s boat with cousins for Rose was the greatest even if it wasn’t even in the water.

– In true childhood fashion Rose tripped this week and smashed her lip. It took two days for the swelling to go down and less than a week for the scab to all disappear. But it still took a few extra days for Rose to notice that her lip was healed.

Things I know- Homework

things i know

things i know homework

1- I will need to find more patience when it comes to helping with homework. Do you have any suggestions?

2- If you have a kids table don’t fall in love with it too much. It’s a kids table they will color on it, spill on it, and yes even bang on it till there are dents in it.

3- Can anyone explain to me the purpose of a hoodie shirt? It won’t keep you dry, keep you warm, and it is in the way when you have to put on a jacket.

4- Visit a 80’s murder mystery sometime by watching some “Murder she wrote”. You will find it fun and slightly cheesy.
