Keepin’ It Frill

By

Why, Fran, where have you been? Well, exhaustedly pregnant to tell you the truth.  At this point, getting anything done beyond basic necessary tasks and childcare is just… hard.  My plan each day is to get through each day, and hopefully that involves taking a nap.  Ugh, I don’t want to be the lazy, exhausted pregnant lady, but there I am.

That isn’t to say I haven’t done anything at all FRILLING or creative or fun lately.  I have, just more slowly.  Like…


…sewing up some FRILLING curtains for the girls’ bathroom


…creating healthy appealing toddler meals in our PlanetBox lunchbox, complete with Raw Cookie Dough Bites


…slowly getting Baby T’s room ready with help from my own childhood Raggedy Ann and Andy…


…knitting up another little hat…


…and teaching Little B how to peel clementimes (“Kem-times”) (blurry photo, sorry)…

Keepin’ it Frill, people.  That’s what it’s all about.

She went to school…

By

Well, “school.”  “School” = Kids Day Out two mornings a week.  At 21 months, Little B is such a curious, sociable, talkative, affectionate kid; we think she’s going to love playing with friends, singing songs, and doing art projects a few hours a week.  And, true to her nature, she practically ran to the door yelling “school!” “play!”, and didn’t look back or give us a second thought.  She was completely uninterested in a goodbye hug for Mama and Papa.

What She Wore…

…purple polka dot dress from BabyGap Outlet with comfy Stride Rite Mary Jane sneakers.

What She (we) Carried…

…beloved frog backpack (bought on clearance at Gap Outlet), and her new PlanetBox Rover Lunch box, a bento-style kit which I think I’m in love with.

What She Ate…

…black olives, dried peas, cheese cubes, rice crackers, goji berries, strawberries and kiwis, a dried fig, seaweed snacks, and a homemade gluten-free Almond Flour Snickerdoodle.  Don’t you love how tidy this lunch box makes everything look? So appetizing.  I wish someone would make me a lunch like this every day.

She’s such a fun girl.
