I'm on a new mission to make a full wardrobe for DGD's barbie dolls. I would say I'm an intermediate sewer (sewist?) I guess. Spent ten bucks on a sewing pattern packet with an entire wardrobe of outfits. I have so much 'cabbage' (scrap fabric not big enough for a garment) and I'm pretty stoked to use a good bit of it up making barbie clothes. DGD loves clothes and I think she's gonna LOVE having lots of outfits for her dolls to play with.

I love that my son is old enough to appreciate my cooking. I am making read beans and rice today. He came into the kitchen from the yard and said that it smells so good!

The reason I don't let DGD take the hand-made vintage dollhouse home and only let her play with it while she's visiting Grandma is because I have a younger daughter and DGD might have cousins some day. I want the dollhouse to be a 'Grandma's House' thing. It's been in my family a long time. I want ALL my grandkids to be able to play with it. If I ever get any more.

I am so freaking excited to see my granddaughter! I can't wait! I work so much in January I haven't even seen her or my son or my daughter in law since Christmas. That is WAY too long! And tomorrow night I get to babysit overnight and have a sleepover with her and I am over the MOON excited. I have missed her and all of them so much.

I recently moved back to my hometown & went my parents to organize stuff. I was awestruck to find a gift from my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Chan. A beautiful pair of red/black winter gloves. I still remember the dept store wrapped box & big red bow. She knew we were quite poor (area had gov't housing and have 4 siblings). Beside a few random school pictures, my siblings and I don't have anything left from childhood. I'm even more thrilled have kept these special gloves 25+ years later. Thank you, Mrs. Chan <3 I'm wondering if you have anything left from your childhood?

In response to a confession. I get it. That's why I keep my mouth shut. It's their family. They know I would welcome and love any new baby with all my heart. They already know that. They don't need to be worried about me when making decisions about their family. I'm sorry your family can't see that simple fact.

In response to a confession. I'm glad you're nice enough to keep it to yourself. I can't talk to any family members without them harassing me for another kid. It's exhausting. We can't afford another one, don't have the space, and kind of don't want anymore considering how the world is now.

I wish my son and his wife would have another baby. There, I said it. *Never to THEM, never out LOUD, but dangit I said it.*

My daughter is 23 and has never worn makeup or dyed her hair or made any real effort to change her natural appearance. She wants to look NICE, obviously, but she doesn't change herself. At all. Just basic grooming. And it occurred to me that the reason she can do this (while most women, including myself, can't accept themselves wholly like that).. is because she never learned to feel ugly without it. And that realization made me feel pretty good, as her mom.

DGD is upset because her 3-year-old son was giving the finger in their Christmas pics (not done professionally). So I showed her the numerous pics of her as a teenager doing the same. Now she knows why I hate those pics.
