I don't have a lot to say tonight.

My internet was down for a day, which is why I havn't posted my organizing challenge pictures. 

Okay, that is a lie.

I haven't posted my pictures because I haven't done the challenges. 

I am a flake. 

A flake who has had one urpy toddler (who cried all night), one feverish 6-year-old, a coughing body-achy husband drugged up on Nightquil, and a dragon to deal with. 

Rowan's been pretending to be a dragon for two solid days. It is a convenient cover story for just about anything he wants to do. 

Me: Rowan, why did you bite your brother?!
Rowan: Cuz' I a Nightfury. Dey bite. 
Me: Well, Nightfury did not bite Hiccup, he protected Hiccup. You should pretend that Brecken is Hiccup. 
Rowan: Nope, he not Hiccup, I gonna bite him. 

Me (a little while later): Rowan, you cannot shriek like that, the baby is sleeping!
Rowan: I not a Rowan, I a dragon. A dragon says RAAAAAAAAAARRGH!

Me: Rowan, you need to obey your mother.
Rowan: Dragons do not have mothers. 

It is much easier to just call him Dragon than argue the point. When Greyson was 3 he insisted on being called "Fast Jack on the Rock" for weeks. The first time I took him to preschool gymnastic class, I was sitting up in the grandstand and held my breath when I heard the teacher ask him his name. As he shouted that his name was "Fast Jack on the Rock," I looked around questioningly for that crazy child's mother.  

So calling a kid Dragon is really no big deal. 

I did get a happy-dance-worthy email today from Jessica Sprague announcing one-buck Wednesday was back. She makes me love Wednesdays. 

I picked up these kits today:

I thought those would make it easy to do quick little coupon books for my boys for Valentine's Day. Simple stuff like "This coupon entitles the bearer to: Hot Chocolate with Whip Cream" or "Story Time with Mom"

How fun are those? I'm sure I can find somewhere to use the following:

And lastly, I picked up The Girl Friday Elements for .99 

Because I live in a house full of boys. And sometimes you just need a little

On top of my organizing challenge, I'm also challenging myself to create one digital layout each week. This week I'm going to use my new digital stash. Hollah!

  1. girl, I wish we lived closer so you could give me some digi scrapping tutorials - those sets look SO fun!!

    and cut yourself some slack on the organizing too - you can still follow the 'plan' but spread it out to once a week rather than once a day - that's a lot to take on to organize, take photos AND blog about it (all while wrangling 4 monkeys! )

    Do what works for you, even if it's just a little at a time - progress is progress, right?



I adore reading your comments; they bring sunshine to my day. Thanks for reading!
