I have a new toy!

For months, it really hadn't bothered me not having a sewing machine after I returned the Janome Sew Petite to QVC. Until yesterday!! I'm not sure what came over me, but a little bird (thanks Jen) told me some great things about the Kenmore Mini Ultra and I just had to have it. So yes...I bought it while it was on sale and picked it up today. I played with it tonight once the kids were asleep. I haven't been doing any scrapping during the week, but I got so inspired I had to start this layout a couple of days early.

Baby? or Little Boy?

Maybe it's the shirt, but baby C looks like a little boy to me in the second picture. He certainly is starting to act like one. He is definitely showing a preference for toys that make lots of noise - actually the same ones that scared A.R. when she was his age. He also has started grunting and growling and blowing raspberries just for fun.

Who's Teaching Who??

Last night when I walk in late from work, A.R. is watching a movie C.A. has rented for her. I'm still not sure I would have rented Corpse Bride for a 4 year old, but then I'm not a father. LOL She is already more than halfway through it by this time anyway.

I ask her what the movie is about. She shows me the DVD case and tells me something about a wedding. Then A.R. says, pointing to the girl on the cover, "She doesn't have any's blue skin." I ask her if that is ugly. With such wisdom A.R. replies, "No Momma. It's not ugly. It's just different."

Oh little girl...thanks for the reminder. And always keep fighting the urge to judge others by how they look. We're all different...but it doesn't ever make us ugly.
