I had a pretty good day yesterday. I didn't get everything done (not by a long shot!), but I did manage to get most of the laundry done. Here's how:
ET folded all of his own clothes. It wasn't a great fold job but he did it by himself and put them all away. And now that we know he CAN do it...
Then they decided to clean the bathroom for me. FANTASTIC!!! I had to touch up a few spots but it was a vast improvement.
Then they relaxed with a game of floatie frisbee.
Squirt has a ton of hand me down onesies. Just plain ole onesies. So I spent an hour sprucing them up. You see, this is why I save my scraps! The only problem is now the other kids want stuff on all of their shirts.
We heard about this website (Zenni Optical) that sells $8 prescription glasses. (Now they have more options and better frames but they start at $8) Hubby broke his glasses a few months ago and has since just been making due with tape and his contacts. But once we heard about the website, he went to the eye doctor to get a new prescription and he ordered three pair. I think it is $5 shipping no matter how many pairs you order. So for less than $50 he has three pairs of glasses. They came yesterday while he was at work so Munchkin modeled them for him.

So now that laundry and the bathroom are done, today I just have to work on the kitchen and finishing up all my half done sewing projects--you know like the dress I made for Thumbelina last summer but never finished because I don't do button holes. I found hammer-on snaps that work perfectly--and take 2.5 seconds! But now, I have to add another layer on the bottom to make it long enough. The nerve of that girl--growing before I finish the dress!

I love how creative you are with the things you do! The t-shirts are well as your little one with the glasses! :)

um...WOW. You could make a fortune with those onesies and shirts. LOL. Let's go into business together. I don't know what I would do, but maybe I could hold the baby. LOL. Or how about you send all the kids my way for the summer. LOL. :D
