If you want to join my Yahoo group, click here or look in the sidebar for the link.  I send messages when I release new products or freebies.  I also send coupons and discounts through there sometimes.  :)

What amazes me are my kids.  My three year old figured out this week that I have a name besides MOM.  He’s been so funny about it too…constantly asking me if I’m Andrea Gold.  When I tell him yes, he thinks it’s so funny and he just giggles and runs away!  It’s enough to brighten my day every time he does it.

I just added this Photoshop class to my store:


You can find out more about it here.

Here is a freebie:

Andrea! I am so glad I joined your Yahoo group! I didn't realize you had the group until a week or so ago, but I sure love receiving your updates everyday!!!

You are the most giving person I know!

I still need to get my mushy post up on my P365 blog. It is coming, this last week has kind of been nuts and I have been in this weird depression mode. I am not used to NOT having a job and it is taking its toll. I have NEVER been unemployed before, and boy, I sure hope something comes up soon. I remain optimistic. Just think of all the shoppin' I'll get to do! I am a Shoppy-MaGoo, let me tell you!!! :-)

Thanks again for everything.

Kids are so much fun...the name my little girl calls me that makes me laugh the most is 'love'. It's what my husband and I call each other so she thought she might as well too. I laugh everytime. The best part is how grown up she is about it when she says it, I can't stop giggling enough to take her as seriously as she wants me to. Thanks for the great template - I love all the pictures on it - it's so fun to scrap so many pictures!

Sharon Kay said...

I remember one of mine thinking my name was funny too. I never quite figured out why it sounded so funny to him. lol

Thanks for the template! You've been on quite a roll lately.

kaffp said...

Thank you for your generosity. Aren't 3 year olds great! Today mine has managed to bite his own finger, undo his seatbelt whilst we were driving (Mummy tell the dog off, the dog did it - this is a 3" McDonalds dog!) and get his neck & head entwined in bramble thorns!!

When my 3yo learned I had a name other than Mommy, she wanted to say it but knew she wasn't allowed. So she used to say "Daddy calls you (firstname) but I call you Mommy." She'd bring it up every few days for a while. :)

Thank you for the great template.

Andrea: He sounds precious... I envy the mother relationship so many of you have but I love living in a small part vicariously through your stories of your little ones. I hope you are feel well and healthy. I want to say thank you for each and every template this week. I've had a bit of a "bug" for almost 10 days now and am just getting back to normal, if you want to call it that. lol I am so sorry I was a hit & run girl again this week. But I do so appreciate your stories and templates. They both bless me each time.
Hugs & Blessings,

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?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.

  • 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!
