PB & J

Journaling reads: 3 yrs old – July 19, 06

Aiden, you are showing me that you’re growing up. Yesterday you wanted to help me make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Someone stopped by so I left the kitchen before it was done so I could visit with our guest for a few minutes. When I came back, there you were with an entire sandwich in your mouth. You stopped eating to announce, “I can do it myself!”

And you sure did! Peanut butter on half the bread. No jelly. I even asked if you wanted jelly and you said, “Nope!” with such confidence.

“Is it good?” I asked. “Yep!” you announced. And you ate it like it was the best sandwich you’ve ever had. I was so proud of my little 3-year-old boy.

Today when I was about to pour your soy milk into a cup you made the same announcement, “I can do it myself!”

. . . And you did.

Supplies:
Note: I use a combination of new and old products. Here are the ones I was able to find still available online:

  • bouncy ball paper
  • vinyl Thickers These vinyl ones are goopy and don’t stick well but they look awesome if you glue them with a good adhesive. Just beware!
  • The white flocked polka dot paper is a favorite of mine but it seems to be sold or clearanced out. I found this brown sheet available and on sale. I’ve also used and loved this black flocked damask paper for a formal look and for Halloween.

T Is For Trinity

Journaling reads:
A conversation with Aiden, age 5…

a: Mom, I want a “T” on my forehead.

(after hearing him mumble, “Trinity . . . Trinity . . .” I made a guess)
m: You want a “T” on your forehead for “Trinity?”

a: Mmm-hmm.

m: T for Trinity? Because you love her?

a: Yep. I love her.

Silly Random Thoughts

Journaling from four different occassions: Aiden – ages 3 and 4
1)”I know what kiwis are made of. Salty, juicy pineapples. With hair all over it.”

2) August 2006 –
Me: Tomorrow I’m getting you a new carseat.
Aiden: A booster seat?
Me: Yes!
Aiden: So it can make me fly?

3) When you want a vitamin you ask for, “That thing that is kinda like medicine and kinda like candy.” (Aug. 2007)

4) Aug. 2007
Aiden: Look! I wrote, “Yoga!”
(shows me scribbles on his spaceship)

Me: Do you mean “Yoda?” Like from Starwars?

Aiden: No. YOGA.

Me: You mean the exercise I do?

Aiden: Yes. It’s your job.

Here is a pink version of my stamp die cut paper, and here’s a blue one with a different pattern.

It’s All About The Details

Journaling reads: Trinity – You have great attention to details. You’re afraid of making mistakes. You’re a perfectionist. You’re also extremely independent, so it makes for some interesting situations when I find you trying to do something on your own but you have to come over to me again and again with detail-oriented questions. Today it happened with you making P.B.+J. sandwiches, which you’ve done a hundred times before…

Trinity: Mom! I want to make peanut butter and jelly but this says “jam!” I can’t find any jelly in the fridge.

Mom: That’s what we use because jelly has too much sugar. Sometimes what I buy says “spreadable fruit.” It’s all just used the same way as jelly.

Trinity (you ran out of jam and went to the closet for more but then came back to me, distraught): Mom! This has a totally different word on it that I can’t read and there are CHUNKS in it!

Mom: Yep, honey. This one is the same kind of thing. It’s called, “Preserves.” But it’s all the same. Now relax and go make your sandwich! :)

Herbivorous

Journaling reads: It wasn’t until Blake told me how his friends act disgusted by the way we eat (last month) that I realized it could be hard on you kids socially. It’s been over two years now since I decided to eliminate animal-related foods from my diet and cooking and became vegan. Last Auguest Dad decided (on his own, without pressure from me) that he couldn’t eat animals and their by-products anymore, either, which meant your diets became even more vegan than they already were.

Since we don’t force you to be totally vegan and you like my cooking, it didn’t occur to me it could be hard until Blake’s friends acted that way, no matter how good it looked or how often they admit to loving it when they try it. I’m sorry if you get embarrassed and I appreciate that you give us few complaints. I hope you understand that I have to live with integrity. I make this choice for health and love, for the environment, the animals, and for peace.

Paperclipping Live Event for National Scrapbook Day

Monday, April 12th, 2010

May 1, 2010
1-3 pm PST
http://www.paperclipping.com/live

We will be having a live (internet) Paperclipping event for National Scrapbook Day this year! Among all the fun we’ll share that day, I would like to invite you to join audience member, Roxane Apple, and me in helping children under state custody to make Life Books. You can do that with extra supplies or products that you’re no longer in love with. I invited Roxane to share how this works and what it is:

“Children in the custody of Social Services create Life Books to remember their lives and the people they have lived with. Life Books are simple scrapbooks the social workers, foster families, and adoptive families put together with the children. Life Books are also used as a form of therapy, to get to know the children, and to understand their situations. They are also used to help the children feel a sense of belonging. The children take the books with them as they move through Social Services. Scrapbook supplies are used to create these books, but Social Service offices don’t have budgets for the supplies they need.

They can use anything you want to give … tools you don’t use anymore; a sticker sheet that only has one sticker left on it; pens you never use; things you want to get rid of so you can have room for something else; whole sheets of paper; good size scraps you don’t want to keep; freebies you’ve received but won’t ever use; supply storage containers you don’t want anymore … you name it!”

scrapbook_scraps


Between now and May 1st, I am asking you to:

  1. Gather scrapbook-related items you would like to donate
  2. Find out who your local contact person is within Social Services (information below)
  3. Weigh your items (this is just for the Paperclipping event)
  4. Arrange to deliver your items.

On National Scrapbook Day you can report to Paperclipping the weight of your donation and we will announce the grand total during our live event!

Erin Bassett provided this web page where many of you will be able to find your local contact person:

If your local information is not available there, or if you run into a dead end, Roxane explained how to find your contact person…

“Google or use a similar search engine to put in your county and state with the words Social Services or Human Services. Each agency is defined a little differently and it is dependent on the size and how many counties they serve. You may be their first call of someone offering donations of this type so you may need to do a little talking to get to the right person. From there you can arrange how you’ll deliver your donation.

I happen to live closer to the woman that works for the Denver County Social Services office then I live to the office she works out of, so I either meet her somewhere or take the donations to her house. The first time I donated to her she was a leery because no one had ever donated scrapbook supplies before, and because I gave her a lot of supplies she was also a little overwhelmed. Soon the shock on her face turned to pure gratitude!”

Once you have found your contact person, please feel free to share the info with others in your area by leaving a comment on this post.
