Ten on Ten: once a month, on the tenth, taking a photo an hour for ten consecutive hours.
Ten on Ten: once a month, on the tenth, taking a photo an hour for ten consecutive hours. I have an extra one though because I loved the ones with the kids in the rain so much, I couldn’t pick between the two. So, I put them both up.
I am so excited! My friend, Brenda, also known as Secret Agent Josephine, launched her books today! How awesome is that? There’s the ABC’s, Numbers, and Colors. The virtual book tour starts today! There will be prizes, crafts, and a secret clue game. I’ll be playing along. You can be all stealthy too.
Last month, at a park, Isabelle came up to me with the saddest little look on her face, with tears threatening to fall. She was patching her eye and she said, “why am I different? Everyone asks why my eye is like this.” I felt so bad for her.
And we do get this question A LOT when she is patching. The patch looks like a bandaid and if we’re out, people will stare or ask if she had surgery or if she was hurt. I always explain, oh no, she’s just patching.
A few weeks ago, the library sent me an email about some books of interest. One of them, the Pirate of Kindergarten, was about a little girl, named Ginny, who was different. She didn’t see the same as everyone else.
I especially love these pages with the phoropter and eye chart, items Isabelle is used to seeing at the doctor’s.
After reading the Pirate of Kindergarten, I thought I would make Isabelle her own little pirate patch. Something that looked less like a bandaid so, hopefully, she will get less questions and rude stares.
Thank you George Ella Lyon for writing this for all of us who see the world different.
Ok, so I know we’re going to try sleeping all together. We have a king size bed and I plan to have the baby on one side of me and Isabelle on the other. I’m not too worried she’ll roll onto him or kick him because she never rolls so violently that she rolls right over me onto the other side.
And maybe one of those side car thingies will work. I can just tuck the baby in there so we have more room. Or we’ll get Isabelle a proper bed and put it in our bedroom and see how she likes it. Who knows, she might surprise us and want to sleep in her own little bed.
Now a different question, is it totally silly that I want to make a mobile for the crib knowing that the baby is NEVER ever going to sleep in it?
This is Japanese craft book ISBN-10 4262152707 or ISBN-13 9784262152707. I got it when I found out I was pregnant.
Well actually I quite like all of them. Well, who says I need to hang it just above the crib, right? I can hang it any old place that makes me happy.
I was going to draw Isabelle hanging off my arm but…well she distracted me. So yep. Totally delusional to do a daily comic again. Well a girl can dream.
