I had such a nice day with my little girl--I just had to let her know. Below is the Greeks Salad I make her for breakfast almost every day. She's 13 now and she too will never be too old for Lunchbox Love!! Lunchbox Love for Kids card from Volume 11

St Simons Island; I have a picture of my grandmother and me in front of this lighthouse when I was a little girl.
Recycling Containers with Crochet - My great grandmother made a small pouch for me from a tiny margarine tub when I was 4 or 5 years old to contain my tiddly winks (remember those?) I've always wondered what happened to it, but now I can make my own! Can't wait to try!!
Sindy wardrobe. I had Sindy but always wanted Barbie!- My husband built one of these for my daughter when she was little. She had little hanger and hung all her doll clothes in it.
ReFab Diaries: Repurpose: New shirt from old "highwaters"! WOW!!! Wish I had thought of this years ago when my girls were little.
Tips for flying with a toddler or baby. I wish I'd had this when I took my 10-month-old on her first flight a few years ago!
"I give them [Kendall and Kylie] a lot of stuff. Khloe and I used to live together for three years, and our garage was her closet. I had it made into a closet, the whole thing. So every time I'd leave the house, on my way out I would grab a bag. I'd steal everything of hers at the time. She had sweaters in her bedroom, so I'd always take her tops and sweaters. She's just always had the best stuff.”
1971 - I remember the cloth calendars my grandmother had on her fridge.
I always had to close my eyes when they showed the little aliens in cages, but I loved this movie!
I saw this when I was 4 years old and never forgot how it looked. It was huge to a little girl. But very beautiful.
This reminds me of pictures my mom drew, for me in the fall, when I was a little girl. Her's always had a tree & a fence. Miss you mom, Vicky
Tees I Like
This Saturday, Toby and I were riding the bus downtown, when a six-year-old girl sat down next to us. She was wearing a white dress and sparkly red flats, and her blonde hair was twisted into a braid. My first instinct was to compliment her hairstyle, but I stopped myself... I had just read the GREAT article How to Talk to Little Girls by Lisa Bloom, which encourages adults to ask little girls about ideas and books, instead of complimenting their looks.

Pink Shabby Chic Tea Set - I always had a special tea set set up in my room when I was a little girl, so I think it'd be nice to have that little reminder of childhood in my room!

This little pup looks cute but when I say "Howl." She attacks. Her sharp little teeth are good to bite the enemy and since she's so small she's quick and can get into small spaces. When she's not on missions she's my little doggie named Casey.
“Four years ago I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing I ever had to do, which was just to wait. Don’t get me wrong I flirted with her...For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife.”

LOL - my hubby taught my daughter this poem when she was a little girl! She loved it...(and still does, now that she's grown)
"as i held her hand and saw mortal life drain from her fingers, i confess i was overcome. before i married her, she had been the girl of my dreams, to use the words of a song then popular. she was my dear companion for more than two-thirds of a century, my equal before the lord - really, my superior. and now in my old age, she has again become the girl of my dreams." [gordon b. hinckley about his wife, marjorie]
