Fun With Materials


“Look at me! I’m the queen!”

“I want to walk around the walls. Why can’t I walk around the walls? You are SO over-protective since that time I broke my arm! Oh, wait, never mind, there’s–”

“A DIRT PILE!!!!!”


You all are going to get tired of hearing about this house, aren’t you?

    :shimmy: Nah, I think it’s exciting!

  3. Becki says:

    I admit it. I’m slow sometimes. I finally saw the guy in yesterday’s tree.

    I horrified our 10-year-old daughter yesterday.

    She was in ballet, and I was sitting on the “Mom” bench. One of the dancers (adult class) in the next class came in early. I had never seen her before, but within 15 minutes, she volunteered her name, her cat’s name (Stinker, formally baptised by her boyfriend), her hobbies (anything art).

    She thought kiddo was poised, bright, polite, a true joy to be around, and a few other compliments. Then she said she was looking forward to getting to know her.

    My mom radar went off and I thought this crazy whacko was not getting to know my daughter.

    Class ended, and the lady went to the barre and began stretching.

    Kiddo: “Why were you talking to her?”

    Me: “She talked. I listened. She seems to know you and thinks you two will get along and work together well and a few other odd things. Do YOU know her from somewhere”

    Kiddo: “I told you we met our new teacher today.”

    No. It’s exciting to see the progress of the house coming up. :hug: I bet you can’t wait til they get the roof up so they can start on the inside. Hope everyone has a great day today.

    The Princess is now a Queen :mrgreen: I love seeing the pics too. Better watch out though, we’re all going to claim it’s partly ours too – well at least a room maybe 😆

  8. Melissa McClone says:

    I was thinking the same thing as catslady about your daughter now being a queen. Didn’t you pass out little pink cards with Princess on them at one of the RWA conferences? I think your mom might have been with you at it.

    And I love hearing about your house being built! I can’t wait to watch it progress!

  9. Brandy says:

    I find the progress and pictures exciting! Thanks for sharing!

    Not me…I like being there from the ground up. Love the photo snippets. I remember when I was younger rolling down dirt piles.
