I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to work part-time and spend my Mondays and Tuesdays with Garrett. Most Tuesdays, we meet friends at Nick's Park for a couple of hours, but we stayed home today. I'm a wimp in this humidity! Today began, instead, with Garrett throwing up in our bed and then biting my...ahem...flesh when I resumed nursing him. Thankfully, that sequence of events wasn't an indication of how the rest of the day would turn out. (And I could tell Garrett was sorry for hurting me.)
This afternoon, I caught up on some reading while Garrett snacked on some Cheerios.
In the January (yes, January) issue of Real Simple, I came across a cool use for an old picture frame: a dry-erase board! Here are the instructions, straight from the source:
Let's see - you need milk, eggs...and something
to replace the stark white memo board that's
sucking all the style from your otherwise charming
kitchen. Frame a pretty piece of fabric or paper,
then write temporary to-dos on the glass
with a dry-erase marker.
I love this idea! There's an empty wall in our kitchen, which, by the way, is not completely 'otherwise charming', that would be the perfect spot for a message center. Click here to browse more of Real Simple's New Uses For Old Things.
Oh, and stay tuned to find out how I intend to use some of the baby food jars we've been collecting!
