Cheryl at Twinfatuation hosts a weekly blog carnival known as Makes My Monday, where participants are asked to post something positive, something that “Makes” their Monday.
I had a good one this week:
There’s just something about the wholesome fun of macaroni jewelry that makes me smile. I have been dying to do this project with the kids for a while! We used painted ziti and pipe cleaners and it worked like a charm. Lily insisted on wearing every single necklace and bracelet all day for the rest of the day.
And here is something else that makes my Monday- a conversation with Lily before bed tonight:
Lily: Good night mama, see you later.
Me: Good night, I love you.
Lily: I love you too, mama.
Me: Thanks Lily… you’re such a good girl.
Lily: You’re a good girl too, mama.
I still have no idea why all of a sudden she has decided to call me “mama” instead of mommy. I am going to have to start calling her “Lily May”. It’s still pretty darn cute though, so I don’t mind too much.
