I dunno what to say….. I have been going nuts trying to find Julia yarn by Nashua. Well, I found some on Ebay. I ordered 10 skeins. I picked 4 different colors. So, this is what Trixie, did to it. She got her scissors out to do crafts. I gave her a ball of Peaches and Cream she could totally annihilate, do whatever she wanted to. I guess it was not good enough or she got bored. She it cut it to pieces and glues it to paper and so on. Well, She was quiet and I thought I should check on her…. Well, she swiped my brand new precious Julia in midnight blue (1 of the 2 I ordered).. I guess it could be worse. It wasn’t her hair. No one is hurt. I just started letting her have scissors again. She recently in the past experimented on her bed sheet. I was upset. I found after washing them that there were tears or cuts. I look closer and realize that they looked too perfect for the washing machine to have eaten the sheets. So, she finally admitted to me she made the cuts with scissors. Then a week later I found more cuts when I laundered the sheets again. She admitted again. Uggg.. She is making me crazy. I love her so much. I just wish she would stop with the scissors.. It has just dawned on me writing this post, I guess this is my payback. My Mom had to hide all the scissors in the house when I was little. When I was her age my friend left all her Barbies at my house. She was so mean to me all the time. Kinda bullyish. Maybe, she didn’t deserve it but, I gave every last Barbie she had a haircut. Yeah, I was in trouble for that one. I was allowed to go to her house and play the following week and all her Barbie’s had wigs! I thought it was funny for years after that later. I guess paybacks are a B**ch sometimes. Well, the cutting never stopped in my case. I became a hairstylist and scissors are my weapon of choice.. I am glad now that I did not yell at her or punish her. We had a long talk about it though.


Just one more!

I just had to add this to my blog! I love that smiling face! This child just makes my day every day! She is such a joy to us. This is her true personality just shining though. It melts my heart every time! Let’s face it. We all love to see our kids succeed and reach their goals.  Everyone should have goals in life.

1st Place Baby!

Of course I need to share this with everyone. This is Tiffany’s first out of school tournament for Tae Kwon Do. She took 1st place on Forms in her division! That was the only category I let her compete in. Mama and Daddy are so proud of her! Next month there is a March Madness tournament she will be competing in. I hope she will be ready to compete in all the categories this next time around. She has some work to do this month to prepare. She was on cloud 9 today winning this trophy! She actually kissed it!

Say Cheese Trixie

OK, I had to have her stop for a second to capture and savour the moment. She is thrilled with all the praise she is getting and is eating it all up. Ahh, I am so proud of her. She made my day. I hope she finds the joy in knitting that I have. I love you Trixie!

It’s late..I think she gets it!

This is Trixie in the process of learning to knit. It’s bed time and I am letting it go. I was able to walk away get the camera and take some pictures while she was so intently knitting. The needles are really too bog for her to handle. I think she is holding her own though!
