Madeleine has made a vending machine.
a working vending machine. out of a cardboard box.
her daddy says "she's so cool." : )
she made a charm to hypnotize.
and there was beading
and baby love (changing diapers and all that).
roller-skating in the kitchen. with a fancy Tea hat.
next she made a snow globe.
the idea, the implementation, and the making of it was all hers.
"Mom, I need the seeds. I wanna plant green beans." Rummages in the drawer...
"Hold up, Babe. Do you really want to plant them? So they'll grow?"
"Where are you planning to plant them?"
"Under the swing."
"Well, they won't grow there, the soil is too sandy-"
"And they won't grow under our feet?"
"Right We'll put them in pots, and you can start some seeds today, indoors, if you like.
"But you''re gonna have to wait a minute, I'm trying to finish up this project..." :)
and so it goes.
"Mom. I found a pipe for my go-cart."
:) she's been needing an axle....
we thought it would work, but as it turns out it's too big around to fit the wheels, so the search continues...
Trevy lectures Madd on Dr. Seuss.
sharing icecream = sibling love.
there was music,
a nap for Mama,
and research on krakens, dragons, and Hercules.
a few dinos passed by our house today, evidently. They left huuuuge chalky footprints.
the sun shone brightly, and there was much outside play and imagining.
the babies are back in the den investigating on their computers while mama lies on the couch with a wretched headache-
but daddy his expected home any minute,
and it's been a beautiful and wonder-full day.
i'm so thankful for this blessed life.
