Last Friday night I attended a very fun baby shower for my friend Julie. It was very special because Julie has two daughters that she and her husband adopted from China and this is their first natural child. This was all by choice, not necessity. They are also expecting their third adopted child from China to be joining them soon. YIKES! That's a lot of kids and babies!
Here are some pics of our newly completed wood stairs.
Here is a project I just finished last night, a shower cap. Yes I use a shower cap about every other day. I used the ones I got at hotels, except I don't go to hotels as much anymore and when I do, there is rarely a shower cap these days. This one will be sturdier (I hope) and not break so quickly as the thin plastic ones. I made this from a tutorial by Junie Moon. Overall it was easy. I had major trouble at one point, but then found a workaround to make it doable. If you want to do this project, contact me for the helpful hint!
This morning was a bit rough. Miles did NOT want to go to school. This was really out of the blue and I was worried about him the entire time I was away from him. I went over to my friend Susie's house to do a bible study with her and our friend Hannah on the book of Daniel (a Beth Moore study). I had called the woman who drives our kids to school, but never heard back. When I went to pick them up, Miles' teacher came out to the car alone with a stern look on her face. She informed me that Miles had wet his pants and all over one of the carpets and gave me the carpet to clean. She said 4 children had wet their pants all at the same time, it was mass chaos and us parents should be having our kids go to the bathroom at home before school. She said that Miles started screaming and yelling for me. I was a bit taken aback. What happened that four children all wet their pants at once? Why didn't Miles want to go to school? Why do I now feel like I did something wrong? I know, that is just my issue, but I felt she was pretty stern. As a preschool teacher for several years, has a child never wet their pants? Is this the fault of the parent? Miles hasn't wet his pants in an awfully long time. Overall I'm getting a weird feeling about this class. It didn't just start today and there is a little bit of a story behind it. Namely, tidbits I've hear from other moms. So, I'll keep you posted if anything else happens that I can share.
