It’s her world and we live in it.

After literally years of waiting, we got this gorgeous and wonderful wall art map.

Tinkering with Tools



In French it’s called “bricolage” -tinkering- and it’s part of the culture to mess around with things and fix stuff.  At the risk of bragging, I was proud to see my (7 y/o) son take repair his (10 y/o) friend’s discarded automatic Nerf gun bullet round holder thingy (regrettable gun culture aside).  Using his own tools, Gavin disassembled it, removed the offending crayon (naturally inserted by a baby sister), reassembled it, tested it and returned it. ♥♥♥♥♥

Meanwhile ClaraJane was working on a booster seat problem.  I think she’s about ready for her own tools as well.

Baby’s growing up

Now that the kitten is getting older, he seems to be taking on some responsibility around the house, like keeping pants from flying away.  #DarthSnowflake   #holdingdownthepants


As you can see, I’m failing to not make pictures.

The struggle is real.
