On being 3

Image found on Pinterest via Jennifer Kable of the fantastic blog Let the Children Play

There are several 3 year old birthdays happening in our neck of the woods these days, including someone in our very own house.

And if I have learned anything in the last 12 months, the 2's were a walk in the park. Hello 3.

I haven't been able to get this image and its wisdom out of my head since Jennifer pinned it months ago. I think I think about it at least 25 times a day - usually when I want a certain someone to sit still, be patient, keep his hands to himself, be quiet and share.

Maybe I need to print it out and hang it on the wall.

Happy birthday to all of our little one's who are embracing 3 and all the parents who are navigating unchartered territory, yet again.


Reusing your child's artwork

We seem to have a plethora of one of kind Piccaso like sheets of paper collecting in our closet. Instead of recycling them immediately or feeling obligated to hang them on the wall or keep them tucked away in some box, I figured why not reuse them. 

Seems I was not alone in my thinking - my dear friend Colleen sent over the top and bottom images of artwork she had transformed!

Would love to see pictures of your DIY giftwrap! Leave a comment and a link to your images!
