Jumble

It was a busy day.  We are having a little BBQ for Canada Day tomorrow and there was a lot of little things to do.

The girls had fun watching me get ready to go out.  I even put lip gloss on them which made them very happy.

I am trying to decide what color to dye my hair next.  Do you have any ideas?

Little Prince had therapy today.  He was a little bit excitable and didn't participate well.  He had fun but after half an hour he kept trying to leave.  He decided that he was done.  Silly boy.

I made the kids tacos for supper because it doesn't heat up the house, it minimizes leftovers, and is always a hit with the kids.

Well That Was an Adventure I Could Have Done Without!

So we had quite the adventure the other day!  First, let me tell you a secret, this house is OLD.  I mean it was built before indoor plumbing and electricity old, I mean the bathroom had no sink and there are no outlets in two bedrooms old.  This is an O L D house and it has been a rental property for decades and the tenants have not taken real great care of it.  I LOVE the character of an old house but it does come with some inconveniences.  Such as, trying to find a stud to hand a picture on only to realize that the entire middle of the wall has NO STUDS at all!!!!!  And the only bedroom that wasn't painted when we moved in was Little Prince's room.  We planned on doing that next month because it looked pretty ugly and he deserves a cute room too.  One panel on the wall had duct tape running along the seam. 

So now that you understand this house, let's move on to the adventure the other day.  Princess Belle went to bring a drink to Little Prince who always likes a drink before he gets up for the day.  She looked in  his room and called me in a panic!  Little Prince had removed the duct tape from the wall (as a curious, autistic 4 year old child is likely to do) and when he did, the entire panel came off the wall.  Then he removed all the insulation and scattered it around his room!  There was pink and paper EVERYWHERE!!!  There were a few finishing nails sticking out of the panel.  That was all that was holding it up!  It was a MESS and it was scary.  Little Prince has no sense of safety and could have really hurt himself.  I was more than a little panicked as I cleaned up the mess. 

I love my house, I love the character, but the hidden things scare me a little.  Here's to no more disasterous finds!

This is Little Prince staring at the ceiling fan.

Beautiful



It was a beautiful day today. I spent most of it shopping for groceries send taking Little Prince to therapy.  I am tired but I feel blessed to have happy children and adults full pantry.

I even bought a couple of dresses.  Prince Charming and I have been together for 16 years and this month is the first time I bought a dress (other than the bridesmaid dress 15 years ago.)  It feels nice to have something cute to wear.

WOO-HOO! !



My boy learned a new word and tried a new food!!  He is slowly kicking Autism's barriers down!  He is happily munching on TWO different kinds of crackers!!!  When he finishes them, he looks at me and says, "crackers" very clearly!!  Telling me he wants more!!!  I love watching him overcome so much.  My boy is learning and changing every day!
