making daisy chains and sitting in the grass at the park
so there's an after school program group of kids we see quite a bit, and there's this particular boy named Cade, the youngest of the group, and he's declared dinah as his girlfriend. when we see them he'll just stare at her the whole time and whisper "she's pretty!" to his teacher..
so today Dinah had gummy bears, and the kids were playing with her and her gummy bears, and some of the other little boys were talking to her,
and cade is standing there, and then he says in a quiet but firm voice "get away from my girl!"
at the park today, dinah saw a couple kids. and she ran over saying "hi!!! hi!!! hi!!" like she always does :) anyways, they had a little sand castle fort thing and she got close and the grubby little boy goes "GET AWAY!!!" and starts yelling at her. of course she runs back confused and sobbing, and the brat's father sits there at a bench, doing NOTHING. i mean the boys older sister did more by telling him not be such a little jerk.
it makes me really happy that They Might Be Giants are doing children's music/a video.... because their music is actually well written and funny, as compared to the crap thrown together of the Wiggles :)
if you got a little envelope in the mail in the past few days with random jewelry/hello kitty things.. it's probably from me.. i was dumb and forgot to put my return address labels on them before i sent em out *durrrrr!!!*
dude, i freaking love the goodwill bins in Portland.
so we went there yesterday and i brought 3+ trashbags FULL of stuff.. some textiles to use for projects, dress up clothing for dinah, misc stuff i know i'll need in the future.. all for 20 bucks..
anyways, i'm so happy to get all this really cool stuff for dinah.. ridiculously bright orange dresses.. sparkley scraps of material, bits of lace for a princess veil... stuff i didn't have to pay a lot for.. but can fill up her dress up chest and inspire her little creative mind :)
katie, i found the most amazing tattered dress to use for our photos we talked about! it's perfect!
anywyas, happiness... happy bananas today... i've been cleaning since 9:30 and i feel so good about it! it's beautiful outside and i'm soaking it in..
