So last night i was typing on the computer when I noticed that one of my diamonds in my wedding ring is missing! At least it was one of the small ones on the side, but still. My heart dropped. I felt like the lady in the parable who swept her house looking for the lost coin, but unfortunately, after a whole day of sweeping, there was no joy in finding it. Nuts. I looked everywhere. I even turned off all the lights and shined a flashlight hoping for a happy little glimmer smiling back at me, but no such luck.
So our next door neighbor owns a nursery, and is planting a billion plants next door. It looks awesome. Except why do people have to ruin it by putting one of those pink flamingo things in their yard? Except this one...is a big green and orange Toucan. ?!? But the cool part is that they are giving us all their "leftover" plants that have lost most of their leaves....but they'll grow soon. I'm starting to like gardening. I'm learning how to separate plants, and which ones like shade/sun. I was digging in the yard with a pick axe, and someone came up to me and said ....."you American women really don't mind hard work." Mind you that 3 construction workers were taking naps on my yard while I was hacking away at rocks in my soil. :)
So just for those moms out there reading...what do you do with your kids to keep them occupied when making dinner? Especially ones that aren't interested in playing with toys. Noah isn't allowed in the kitchen, (just a rule I decided to make so he doesn't hurt himself) and every night I battle to come up with ideas to keep him in a spot where I can watch him properly. :) So....what are your ideas?
