We went to visit my parents for the afternoon. They live about an hour away. We realized as we were visiting during the afternoon that it was too quite and my 3-year-old was missing. We found her under my parent's very nice dining room table with a bottle of white out...:(

Luckily, my father is a cabinet maker and can fix this. :|

Anyway, here is a freebie:

Oh, goodness, white out on the table! Reminds me of the time my little one went into the garbage can and found a foam paintbrush (soaked in paint) that I had thrown away. Luckily, he had only painted the entire front of the dishwasher before I caught him, and I was able to clean it all off! Anyway, thanks for another great template!

I always knew if my kids were being really quiet, they were doing something. Like the day my oldest daughter who was 10, cut her younger sister's hair when she was only 3. LOL

Thanks for the template as it is really pretty.

Thanks for a great template. I was able to satisfy my need to be creative, as it is hard to pick the right time when you have a three yr old.

Joy said...

Thank you so very much Andrea :)

Hope-Inspiration said...

Thank you for the templates ..... and OMG on the white out. Is this what I have to look forward to? My DD is almost 3 .... oh boy, oh boy. LOL

Oh I have to add this, was proof reading my post and instead of DD had put DH [for some strange reason, or was it a fraudian slip?] sometimes I wonder who the kid in the house really is. LOL

Sweet Pea said...

Maybe your daughter will become an artist!

Thanks for the beautiful template. Your designs are always so pretty!


Jennifer said...

Thank you so much for the gorgeous template. I sure hope you can get that white out off the table! Yikes!

Our table will be fine! I'll take a 3-year-old painting with whiteout-and staying in ONE PLACE--over frantically trying to find a runaway!(and boy can she run fast!) Got to love the grandchildren no matter what they do--their priceless!!!!!
Love,the grandma of a future artist

Dang sorry! Missed this one.
I'm on vacation and this is the first chance I got to check out your blog. :(

Phoebe said...

Thanks for the template.
I used it, and modified it a bit... if you'd like to see what I did with it (using Molly's Springtime kit) :

Please, keep in mind that this is only the third page I've ever made (I'm not too good at adding shadows).

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
