You may not want to ask my youngest daughter for (practical) organizing and decorating help. She’s got some wild ideas.
Like, for example, what to keep in your newly remodeled bathroom. (I’m going with a coffee theme. Surprise!)
(It all started with me being tired of the blue paint… so Dee painted the walls brown, and then we got a new toilet since the old one was out anyway… a 29 golf ball flusher… for all those matchbox cars that could theoretically be flushed down… and then Dee didn’t like the old pedestal sink… and now the mirror, wall cupboard, and shiny chrome hardware don’t match…)
Dee plumbed the sink last night, for which I was very grateful! Using the toilet in one room and then going to another room to wash hands was creeping me out with the germs.
Now we can fill up the cabinet! The empty space under the old pedestal sink meant that toilet paper and soap refills, extra toothpaste and whatever else you might want in a bathroom had to be kept somewhere else. Today I asked Megan, “What do you think we should keep under here?” She’s a smart girl, I expected her to at least say, “Toilet paper!” But nope.
Megan: “Um… how about an elephant?”
Me: “An elephant?”
Megan: “Yeah, a baby one. There’s a pink one in the back yard.”
Me: “A pink baby elephant?”
Megan: “No… it’s blue.”
Somehow, I don’t think the local pet store will do for this girl!
Speaking of pets, the kids and I scarfed up some frog eggs today, from a stream near our house. We’ve never hatched tadpoles before! I’m excited, and hoping that we don’t kill them by accident.
