In my world: Blessing is her middle name

DD drew up this activity sheet for her brother the other night. In her own words, “it has a ‘Find the Differences’ section, a ‘Trace the Dotted Lines’ section and the below is for Di Di to colour”.

And she sat with him patiently, explaining the sections, keeping an energetic younger brother quietly occupied as her father and I leaned back to catch a breather from the long day.

Sometimes in the middle of cleaning the rooms, I discover little gems left behind by the children. This Friday series was started with the intention of celebrating the imagination and creativity in a young child’s world…and hoping that it’ll bring a little ray of inspiration and joy to your day, as it does mine.

In my world: The floor of my home office

This is the floor of my home office.

This is the open toy bag that lay on the floor of my home office.

These are the dinosaurs spilled out, from the open toy bag that lay on the floor of my home office.

This is the container, yellow and tall, that towers over the dinosaurs spilled out, from the open toy bag that lay on the floor of my home office.

These are the bricks all scattered about, that go in the container, yellow and tall, that towers over the dinosaurs spilled out, from the open toy bag that lay on the floor of my home office.

This is the stuffie horse and plastic spoon belonging to the children, that played with the bricks all scattered about, that go in the container, yellow and tall, that towers over the dinosaurs spilled out, from the open toy bag that lay on the floor of my home office.

This is the mummy who paused in the middle of work and thought up a nonsense rhyme as she picked up the stuffie horse and plastic spoon (and everything else) belonging to the children, that played with the bricks all scattered about, that go in the container, yellow and tall, that towers over the dinosaurs spilled out, from the open toy bag that lay on the floor of my home office.

In my world: Pat it and prick it

 

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, dig some sand

Build me a castle as fast as you can

Pat it and prick it and mark it with leaves

Pull out the camera and save it for me.

In my world: Now ain’t that just the truth?

Icing on the cake

“All the girls in my class, when it’s their birthday, they wear a dress.”

Dress, check.
Cupcakes, check.
Goodie bags, check.
Candles and lighter, check.

School birthdays. It’s a milestone for both me and her.

The kitchen counter’s a sweet, buttery, happy, creamy girly-pink melty mess.  And so’s my heart.

In my world: Stuck on you…

Does any home with young children ever escape the sticker-on-wall phenomenon? 🙂  But I’m so not taking these down – they bring a new meaning to comic relief!

DD’s wall – They started out on the back of the polka-dotted horse but I’m pretty sure those joyride-loving little forest friends have been moving a centimetre higher a day.

DS’s wall – one hungry t-rex + one pack of construction stickers + one cheeky little boy =…
