Twins, Sandals, and Smocking (not mocking)

Yes, with great relief, I must admit that the previous post was my attempt at an April Fools joke.  Not funny?  You’re right.  Twisted?  You’re right.  However, quite believable with my record!  I’m glad to hear that there are such things as bunk cribs and had I known I would have looked for some for my current babies.  Alas, I shall not become Muttersieben (mother of 7).  I am, and always will be, Mutterfünf (yes, I know that my email still says Mutterdrei (mother of 3), but it’s too hard to change that now).

Notice in the picture there are no intrusive straps between the big toe and its neighbor. 


Another random thought on fashion…

Now for another diverting thought, my love of smocking.  When it comes to clothing, those baby smocking 2items with smocking are the cutest!  I never use the word “cute” in referring to clothing so much as I do when it comes to this cute design.  Isn’t it the cutest?  Cute, cute, cute!  Actually, this word has been used at an exponential rate since my baby girls have been added to the family and I am now aloud to shop in the girl sections of the store.

I learned recently that smocking is actually the medieval version of elastic.  Much cuter than that stuff that leaves a red line around the ankles, waist, and wherever else one wears elastic.

O.k., done with this random blog entry.  Have a nice day all.  I’m going outside to enjoy this 52 degree hot and sultry day.  At least I don’t have to wear a coat. Ah, Spring…

“That's a tough one. I'd have to say April 25th. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.”

You did have me at first with your last post, but then I realized it was April 1. Ladd fell for it too when I told him about your post.
I love smocking too and can't wait to dress my little girl in it!

I like smocking, too.

Shopping for girls is soooo much fun. It only gets more fun as they get older (and more expensive :P).

I think you definitely need to go to Hawaii to pick up some sandals!!! :)

Smocking is the best. I love it for my little girls and for myself. And...I love your movie references. I'm so glad we like the same stuff. :)
