shots from drippin', letter to Santa, Nim's Island . . .
The sewing machine is a tiny old-style version that was given to Miss A for Christmas. Cute, eh? It really sews, too!
I watched Nim's Island with Miss A last night and was so impressed. There was little to no buzz around that movie, but it is just like Romancing the Stone for kids! If you have a 3-6 yr old child, you must rent/Netflix this film! It is just a great rumination on courage and adventure and imagination. The scenes of our hero Nim reading and the action occuring all around her are fantastic!
And as for that letter to Santa. Check it out below. Ain't it great? My eldest dictated the words to me and decorated the letter. Those last few words, if you can't make them out, are "p.s.--What color frogs do you like?"
And, if you are a breastfeeding mama, check out this link, where a fellow mama gives a radio broadcaster a piece of her mind for talking about how "rude" it is to breastfeed in public. Can you believe the nerve of that peckerhead?
I am a mama, Certified Professional Midwife, dancer/choreographer, gardener, photographer-in-progress, collector, yogi, and lover of the quirky/wild/wierd/wonderful. Myself, two daughters, one dog, two rats, two hamsters, and an ever-changing number of fish reside in an old farmhouse on two limestone-ridden acres in the Hill Country of Central Texas.
My irrational obsessions include: bright blue borage flowers, embroidered pillows, tunics, vintage tablecloths, shoe lasts, rusted iron, my daughter's smile, and the sunshine on my face.
