If I had to describe my life in one word it would be “&”.
Hanging on hooks as I head out of the door is my purse & my diaper bag & the library bag & the toy bag for Little Man & the bag filled with hand-me-downs to give away & my Tap bag.
Every time I think I have a schedule made there comes along that “&”.
Or when we are loading the car and everything is tucked in and organized out come four more random bags spilling their contents–“&”.
Or when I have everything decided and organized in my mind then comes along The Hunni or a kiddo’s opinion–“&”.
Or when we are figuring out the budget for the month and everything has its proper category that can be entered in the computer, and all the number balance, but then there is that “&”.
Our Family is a series of “&’s”. There is The Hunni & Rebecca & LBG (Little Big Guy) & Scout & Eloise & Little Man.
We have lived in Ecuador & Illinois & Florida & Michigan.
Our kids are involved in soccer & piano & guitar & Boy Scouts & baseball.
A useful little word.
So here are some random “&’s” that are happening in our life here at My Whit’s End.
We have a wasp’s nest in our house. It sits right at the dinner table with the rest of us . . .
& the wasp nest is surprisingly beautiful (without the wasps of course.)
& it is important before taking a wasp or hornet’s nest into your house to make sure that there are no wasps or hornets living in the nest.
& wasps are basically the “inventors” of paper.
& Little Man is cutting his eye teeth.
& he is a BIG GRUMP!!!
& he still has my heart.
& the kids got into Mr. Potato Head’s accessories.
& they put the mouth pieces in their mouth,
& the head pieces on their heads, and the ear pieces in their ears, and the nose pieces in their nose. . .
& then Mommi ended that Fun Time.
& I fell in love with this shirt by Lucky Brand. I love everything about it. I can wear it without tucking it in and therefore hide some lumps and bumps. I can wear it to baseball games or soccer games or shopping. The embroidery is beautiful. It is a very, very, light cotton, but it is long sleeves, so I can wear it all seasons. It looks great with my cowboy boots.
& in case you ever wondered what size I buy, you no longer have to wonder.
& you can see the price tag, except I didn’t pay that as I just bought it at Sam’s Club for $9.98.
& it comes in black–so classy.
& white–so light and feminine.
& denim blue–just add a turquoise necklace!
& I want one in every color.
& I have to head out to Sam’s Club again today, so. . . . .
& the winner of the book give-away is Lisa Jacobsen. (I hope you enjoy it as it is one of my favorite nature books for little ones.)
& I am giving away the hook with the “&” on it. Just write what you or your family did today. I am sure that you also have many “&’s” in your life.
