I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

Mr. Fix-It

Look for a stud (real stud finder)...
before we hammer it secure (fake hammer)!

Having recently moved, we've had to bring out the tools and fix a few things, anchor some furniture, hang some pictures...nothing more than a little hammering, drilling, measuring.

June Bug is OBSESSED with tools, the real ones.  How quickly they figure out the little plastic ones are crap and won't do the damage that Daddy Bugs tools can do. To appease his curious nature and distract him so we could get a thing or two done, I let him play with a tape measure.  Harmless right?  Yeah, not for my ego that's for sure.

Unbeknownst to me, he toddled up behind me, measured my bum and then to let me know what a good job he'd done,  proudly declared it "big mama, big".

Awesome, June Bug. Wanna rub a little salt in that wound and give me an exact measurement?
