mama's favorite form of discipline...

maybe not so favorite for the girl!

(disclaimer: she claimes it was a serious endeavor to create a flying elephant
out of the paint on the kitchen table. it was serious alright, this mama said.)
 i'm not sure if it's quite working as a really-sink-in form-of-discipline anymore.
she used to sob the whole way around the house with this thing.
note: winter ear-covering hat is worn to block out "torturous sounds".

punisher...we may need to be replacing you for a further upgrade on
what really-gets-the-lesson-to-sink-in.

in our house...when you chose to destroy things or make messes,
you work doubly hard to put it back together or clean something else up
(if painting tables is not in your repertoir).
seems to get the job done for the most part, but looking at the face on this little offender,
it may need to be shifted a wee bit.
hmmmm, praying for more creative juices to flow on getting this little heart trained...

hanging onto this one these days...
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. -James 1:5

mamas and their babies and THEIR babies!

What a sweet and special joy it has been to grow in size and number with my treasured sister-in-love!
Babies babies on the way,
in some very very short days! 

Mama Kitty is making these 2 grandma's very proud and happy...
she's providing them each with one of their own babies...a boy AND a girl!
We all couldn't be more ready to squeeze the twin-y baby loves!

CONGRATS mama Kate and daddy Thys!
Your new world is going to turn you upside down and right side out
in all the best most unbelievable joy-filled ways!
