Wordless Wednesday



(Ok, maybe not so wordless... my kids don't even pick their clothes up off the floor without a fight, and this child is knitting her own sweaters. See, this is why you should believe it when your grandfather tells you stories about how he had to walk 5 miles to school! Barefoot! In the snow, uphill both ways! With only a crust of bread for lunch! Life was a lot rougher back then... they even made their 3 year olds knit the family outwear. Maybe this is why the older generations seem to have a much stronger work ethic? Things were harsh, everybody pitched in, lots of kids left school as soon as possible to earn money for the family. In this day and age, in this part of the world kids might get after school jobs to earn money for their own clothes or gas for their car... but I can't imagine any of them turning their paycheck over to mom and dad for the family good. I wonder how we go about finding a happy medium?)

Looks like even back then, girls had sensory issues...check out her stockings...

Seriously, when you find the answer to the question of achieving balance, will you please share it with me?

M - perhaps, but then would she actually be TOUCHING wool for the sweater? Perhaps it was an "OK day for prickly, scratchy", but a "Bad day for lower leg exposure." She probably won't touch that cat on even numbered Thursdays, either!


SIS - God, if I had the answers I'd be a rich woman! Oprah would want me to be a guest on her show as often as she has Nate Berkus on there! (He? Is yummy!)
