{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} At the End of May

{PRETTY}

This is my Brenna. We enjoyed a nice, long three day weekend with her, and I think she is so lovely. Except that when she’s not working, she always wears this same tee and these baggy jeans. I’m thinking I might have to be a little less efficient with the laundry so she’ll wear something else.

{HAPPY}

This is my Evie, and I have to say that I absolutely love having her in my life at this “advanced maternal age”. Motherhood at forty-something is so much more relaxed. I can see the end now, and I don’t hurry things or worry things as much as I did in my less experienced days. It’s so very good, even at three o’clock in the morning. :-)

{FUNNY}

This is my Penelope, who received this tiara as a birthday gift on March 10. She has worn it every day since, except for that one day I took it away due to a habit of some very unprincess-like snorting. She only takes it off to wear her bike helmet, and to bathe and sleep. Otherwise, she’s sporting her sparkles.

{REAL}

{deep breath} I’m opening an Etsy store. Affiliate links make me feel dirty and spammy and less than, but I do like to make things, so I’m going that more wholesome route. There’s only one thing in my store right now, but I have three more bracelets in different styles to list this afternoon, and other ideas in the works.  I hope it does well!  It’s always kind of scary to put yourself out there, isn’t it?

Well, visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {P, H, F, R}!

    Really cute bracelet! And I thought you said you’re not “crafty mom”. Crafty mom doesn’t have to do glitter and pom-poms, you know; she just has to give her kids the appreciation of making things with whatever they like :)
    The girls are all so beautiful and big! Brenna looks so pretty in that color and so relaxed, too. I wish we had chances to see each other in person.

      Well, by Crafty Mom, I meant that I don’t like doing pointless crafty projects with the kids, not that I don’t like making things! All the children know how to do a variety of things, like knitting, crocheting, sewing, drawing, embroidering, quilling… I have varied interests and I share with them, but I don’t do construction paper.

      I wish we could see each other more often, too. I miss you guys so much! If only NJ was closer to Louisville.

    It took me forever to get up the nerve to open an Etsy shop. I’m glad I did, but I have had a few episodes that made me want to close it up. But that’s the way life is isn’t it? It can’t always be sunny and 70 degrees! We have to take a little bad along with the good. I’ll check out your shop. I opened another one recently but haven’t announced the opening yet — after the wedding when I can stock it well.

    My goodness, Brenna is beautiful. Aunt Beckie had this bright yellow sleeveless top for summer with a horrible design on it and she wore it all the time – ugh!

    Good luck with the Etsy Shop my first born and yes putting yourself out there is scary and exciting.

    Please hug and kiss everyone for me – it is my fondest wish to see you all this summer and with any luck
    Daddy will able to do it this year. I miss you so much and love hearing your voice.
    Love always,
    Mommy

    We’re looking at getting my daughter a tiara as part of her birthday gift. How did this one hold up? Would you buy that same one again, and if so which is it?
