Life Lesson #23

Your kids will always make a liar out of you.

It's true! You promise the sitter/friend's mom/camp staff that such and such is their favorite food and that pretty much guarantees they won't touch the stuff - or the reverse that they don't like it and they'll eat 3 bowls of it. Or take for example my 6yr old DD who I was explaining to my neighbor after 2 yrs of swimming lessons and threats and coaxing and bribes still will not put her face in the water past her chin - won't even blow bubbles in the bath. I was considering putting her in swim lessons in AU to try again - next thing you know this is what she's doing....



Yup that's right - she's swimming UNDER WATER!! And I mean the next thing you know - I had literally just finished the sentence and she was under the water. Not just a little - completely and totally under the water and now suddenly she can't get enough of it! So once again I look like the idiot mum that doesn't even know what her kids can do. Lesson learned!

I was blog cruising this morning (because it's not like we leave in 2 days and I have nothing to do around the house......) and I stumbled onto Trisha's blog and she is Bella-less. Well I can't let a fellow stamper be with out a Bella so I quickly made a card to send to her


Obviously my creativity is at an all time high since this is the exact same layout as yesterdays card... anyway....This Bella looks a bit like me (in my dreams) and she has my brown and pink bag too :o) So a little envelope is on it's way to you Trish - enjoy!


Okay I really have got to finish packing and cleaning (because the Lord knows it's not likely my husband will be picking up a broom in the next 2 months....)

Put her in AU swim lessons anyway so at least the poor thing can continue to swim this summer, I mean, uh-hum, winter!!! Have a safe flight and post glorious pictures on your blog, you oh-so-chic- globe-trotter-with-the-neopolitan-ice-cream-luggage!

ok, sorry, your luggage has turqouise dots, which of course aren't in neopolitan ice cream, but the chocolate and the pink are...just add some vanilla, and then I'll be right...

I LOVE IT! OMG! I am SO excited. I can't wait. I have met so many nice ladies on here, I am hoping to keep sending cards back and fourth between some of the ladies I have met. I love getting home made cards :D Thank you SO much! :D

Fantastic card...LOVE the paper!! Where did that come from???

Funny story...wish I could get our daughter to swim. She will blow bubbles, but still has trouble putting her face in the water much further!

I can only say that would make an awesome scrapbook page, just use what you just typed as your journaling. Really she'd treasure that always! Love it!
