broken wing

Katie broke her arm last week.

The last couple of days have been a blur.

The good news: she didn't have to have surgery however, it's still too swollen for a cast. This makes me a little nervous with only one side of her arm protected with a splint.

Broken bones, I'm finding are all too common and I've received a lot of advice which I have welcomed. So, I ask:

-- What tips do you have for bathing? A friend recommended this, anyone else try this or something else like it?

-- Katie has trouble sleeping and is uncomfortable, beyond basic pillow propping, any ideas?

-- It's her right arm -- and, yes, she's right-handed -- any thoughts on activities you can do with one hand?

thanks in advance for sharing...

lemony dreams

When I found this dress for Mo last year, I totally had a vision of her wearing it in the orchards behind our house.

We've had some truly fabulous weather this week (sans winds too) so armed with some mini M&Ms (bribe) I drug a white chair and a stool out to the fields.

A truck drove by in the fields when we were out there -- stopped -- and backed up to see what we were doing. Guessing he doesn't see 3-yr-olds sitting on white chairs all that often out in the fields.

He was super nice and actually apologized for interrupting us, as if we weren't trespassing on the the land he has a job on!

We ended up being out there at noon -- I had wanted to do it in the morning -- so the sun was right on top of us, but I like the sun-filled pictures.

Oh, and I still love my 50mm lens.

apparently all mermaids are well-endowed.

Came across this picture which I had stashed away last year. It made me chuckle then, and it still does...
