Sometimes this mom life and/or grandma life gets in the way of doing the other things I enjoy. Such as blogging today. I think it is safe to say you can all relate. So I am just going to tell you a bit about my Moms Life day because, it is my goal to make room for blogging in some form each day even if it is in the wee early morning hours. It gives me a nice platform to be a bit creative 🙂 and connect with other moms .
I cleaned today. There is a big surprise. However it seems I have been quickly losing steam lately. Midafternoon I was bored out of my mind, didn’t want to clean anything more and was seriously thinking of any excuse to get out of the house. So I mentioned to hubby I would like to go to Best Buy to checkout their cameras.
I am not by any scope of the imagination a photographer but this is what we came up with.
Nikon – COOLPIX B500 16.0-Megapixel Digital Camera in Plum
Ahhh, she is so beautiful <3 LOVE!!!
We are just waiting to get our taxes back. I played with it in the store and just loved the ease of use and the way it felt in my hand. I don’t care too much about the color but the hubby would like to see me have it in the plum color so if they have it in that color I’ll be getting that if not black is great too. The camera I have now is a FUJIFILM and it is the biggest piece of junk I have ever laid my hands on. Though to-day. I did charge its batteries and such because I do not think the cell phone pics are helping my blog much *sigh* . So that is that I am waiting on a new camera and super excited too! Then no more blurry, weird, mistimed photos. Well, at least not so often 😉 .
So after I tossed batteries in my camera I snapped a photo to make sure it was working in some capacity.
This is our miniature poodle mid face lick. Such a handsome old boy. He is Little Miss Toddlers best buddy. So very tolerant and loving with her. He loves her even more when she has a bread crust or some other yummy morsel in her hand. LOL But, he feels that way about all of us. Miss Toddler loves slipping him treats. I think he has put on considerable weight in her presence .
Little Miss Toddlers newest thing is using her “colors” crayons. (See why Little Miss Toddler is all wet below .)
She is very insistent though YOU color for her or watch her color. What ever at the moment suits her fancy. Tonight she captured Pop-Pop as a coloring partner. He looks adorable seated at her tiny Minnie Mouse table coloring . He is such a good father and Pop-Pop. Aways making time for the things that really matter like “colors” and snuggle time.
There is something else Little Miss Toddler likes even more than her colors and I am sure if you looked at the photo of her coloring you saw she was a very , very wet child. She enjoys this so much … She calls this “washing dishes” How ever she is not really allowed to wash dishes. What she is doing is making puddles of water. Lots of water. She is also soaking her clothing. This right here is her happiest of activities. Me, I am not a fan, LOL but I let her supervised hoping one day soon she will tire of it or turn into a tween who just thinks washing dishes is fabulous! Okay wishful thinking I know.
We had a pretty simple dinner of Chop Suey and rolls. I have been craving it and the hubby is not always a fan so it was easy and yummy. The boys were thrilled as they all love pasta in any form.
Now I am off to wash towels (the work never ends) and go to bed. <–Yay!
