Only in your imagination

les petits artistes

Ivy asked me if monsters are real, and I said only in your imagination. And she said well I think they are real. I asked what they looked like and she said big and green with horns in their ears and they come at night. I reminded her... Ivy who is always with you?

Without a beat: "Carter."

"I mean Jesus. And God!"

re-use frappe cups & lids for no mess paints


We had a playdate the other day and the girls tried out something my friend Sheryl found on Pinterest. I loved the colors just as much as the function. I'm babysteph on Pinterest, by the way. Let me know if you're on there and I'll be sure to follow your boards. I can always send you an invite if you need one, too.
