bitter sweet.

I took Charlee's crib down.
I was fine until I was actually carrying the pieces down to the basement.
Then it hit me. I will never put up a crib again...until Im a grandma!
:(
it was so sad to think that.
I have loved my babies. And all the 80 Pieces of furniture that goes with them.
This was the last to go.
.
So We still have been searching for a bunk bed for Jax and Charlee...
Mike was going to make one, had the plans all ready UNTIL............................................
I snagged THIS BEAUTY at the DI for $30
I did the shuffle in the store. I was too excited.
{and plus as much as mike is working lately i know he did the shuffle also}
I texted Mike this:
OH MY GOSH I BOUGHT THE MOST EXCITING THING EVER IN THE WORLD TODAY"
Mike calls me:
Hey, so what you doing?....
Me:
Im at the DI picking up a bunk bed.......eeeeee HONEY it was only $30 and I can paint it WHITE!.
Mike:
Cool! So, what did you buy that was so exciting today?
Me:
THE BUNK BED!!! HELLO?
Mike:
Oh. Cool!
Me:
Oh, Whatever.......
.
.
Maybe Im the only one that gets a high OFF finding treasures..............lol
.
So today....
Im painting it white!
Love the little book shelves for the headboards.
can't wait to get bedding :)





I also Found These two Mirrors for My toilet room.....
and.....................I hung them myself. Found the studs and everything.
Im so cool.
.
.
Now, can you see in the Mirror the drawers that is behind the door?
it looks like a LARGE changing table...lol
I have NEVER known what to do with this space...?
anyone?



Charlee sews with me.
eats with me.
baths with me.
sits with me.
walks with me.
.
everyday.
She is becoming a mini me.
.
We made her baby blankets for her little babies....she loved picking out the fabric and then helping me push the fabric through the sewing machine.
:)
.
.
.
Lastly......
We have been trying to eat dinner as a family around the Kitchen table EVERY NIGHT!
Its been working out splended!
We then go around the table {tradition of my sister and mom and dad} and say:
favorite part of the day?
what you learned?
and how you feel right now.
.
We got to Jackson......
he says:
"What I learned today was that i have a talent, and My talent is when I run away from girls at school. Im really good at it"
.
.
.
I love little boys!

You know that song "paint it black" I think Ozzie ozborn signs it......anyway I sing that all the time but I sing " I see a red door and I want to paint it white." I love white!!! Everything should be white!!!

Love that you have a little shadow! Simone does all those things with me except sew. :) I need to pull out my machine and make her doll a blanket! That is so cute!!

You find the BEST stuff. ;) I need to go on a DI outing with you...but then I think we would fight over pieces... ;) I totally get the crib thing. I took down Ali's lace bassinet (that has been in my room) and I cried...and cried. She's my last and it's SO bittersweet. I have to keep telling myself that "this is a new phase in my life."...and it makes it better until the next wave hits me. ;)
