"I can't go to sleep until Daddy gives me the clap."

Yes, Jaxon calls high fives "claps." And last night he couldn't sleep until he got a high five. Or "the clap."


All my work projects are coming to a head, and I had one of those days yesterday...

My ankle is still swollen so I am still slogging around in the flattest shoes I can find. I was getting Jaxon situated in the car and I slid on some gravel. I skinned up my knee and now it is nicely black and blue (Jaxon's reaction: "Mommy, WHY would you fall down?" Yes, I choose the silliest times to fall down.) Then as we were making our way into the house, one of the eyelets on my dress caught on a drawer pull and ripped.


I had scheduled to stay home today and have used the day to do only things that appealed. So it has made up for yesterday.

This week I have found a little time to work on last month's Bee blocks...

And I made a super quick purse from some surprising fabric...

I'll share more on this soon!

Was it a favorite dress too? You're really having a time of it.

Ouch. Your poor legs.

I am going to add to my website "Things my MIL says on vacation..." She had some interesting innocent comments about hard candy that Marcelo found very amusing.

Hahaha -- love that title! And Mommy -- What were you thinking??? I sure hope tomorrow is a better day for you! Can't wait to see more of your purse too.

Jaxon is hysterical! Isn't having a little boy the funnest thing ever?! I'm lucky that I had three. (Good news.... They're still funny when they're big!)

Love your blocks, they look like open envelopes. Probably with some great mail inside too :)

I think this will be a new quotable quote at bedtime around The WoodLand School!
Sorry about your knee, dress, and (still!) ankle. Hope you're really truly on the mend soon :-)

When Pip was little he used to say, "You can't count on me."

He didn't like it when I counted to three to make him hurry up.

Funny how they say things that make perfect sense, but are oh, so wrong.

So...in many, many moons, you'll be able to pull up this blog post for Jaxon, and explain how you had a hard time not laughing over the clap.

And your poor legs & dress - all you can do is laugh, I guess?

And I eye spy Liberty of London... :)

Oh dear. Shows you what kind of company I've kept (criminal law clients). I was quite worried about disease when you spoke of the clap. I'm quite relieved that there is no clap altho I would hope you would heal soon!
