I need to organize this closet. :)
This is my darling daughter’s closet. She doesn’t have very much in her closet but it looks messy and I need to organize it. One of my big projects I have planned for my household is organizing the closets: the master’s closet, the guest room’s closet, and most especially my toddler girl’s closet. There’s so many outgrown toddler clothes that I need to give to my niece in the Philippines. Some of them I want to donate or maybe sell thru a garage sale.
See how unorganized this is? I need to eliminate unwanted and unused stuff in my daughter’s bedroom like infant toys, outgrown clothing and shoes, stuffed or plush toys, books, and seasonal items. My life as a full-time mom and housewife is busy that sometimes I am having a hard time finishing what I started. But I am doing my best. I want to accomplish something big this year.
I am looking on Pinterest on kids closet decorating and organizing ideas. So far I have seen so many great presentations and tips. I don’t want to overdo everything. And an inspiration or two is enough for me. I will start in a very simple organization then will add some pretty little things here and there one step at a time.
I am missing my nieces and nephews. I wish am home so I can give them hugs and kisses every time I get the chance. I enjoy their company and we always had a great conversation and did fun activities at home.
Hearing their voices and seeing them on video chatting is different than talking with them in person. Because they don’t have an Internet connection in their households, my sister will take them to the nearest Internet cafe in town when she goes to chat. But that is not very often.
I care for my nieces and nephews so much that I am doing my best to give them the things that will help in their schooling and everyday needs. This I know, that these kids are looking up to some things that other kids have. They want to have pretty school bags or school clothes or new shoes. They also want to go to school with complete school supplies in their bags. They want to eat good meals in the canteen. But with a very tight budget, they only have small amount of money ($.25 perhaps) in their pockets. Still they diligently go to school on weekdays. I also know that my siblings are taking good care of their kids. And my parents are there to assist and help in any way as much as possible, too. But my thoughts are with them. I love them. In God’s amazing graces I will do my best to help my nieces and nephew. I won’t let them down as long as I have the strength and good health.
“Thank you for making this tent, mommy. I love it!”
It is always fun to play especially when kids’ imagination works completely that they think of something remarkable beyond what they see. Simple things make them happy when their minds work and create a situation where they pretend to become someone whom they idolize or copy.
This Dora tent has been up for three days. Why? My little one doesn’t want to put it down because she still wants to play and sleep in this tent. Actually, I let her help build it. I wanted her to take part in activities like creating and building even in simple things so she can develop her sense of responsibility and engagement. She was very proud of it, you know. As soon as her daddy got home from work, she excitedly showed the tent to him. And her dad said, “See what you can do with your imagination. It looks nice.”
DD’s Dora tent :)
Darling daughter and I slept on the couch (in the tent) the other night. She seemed to be attached to it. But it was for the tent to go down. My daughter didn’t want to but I explained that we will put up the tent anytime.
Time really passes by when you are having fun. My cousin’s three-week long vacation back home (in the Philippines) is over and they’re heading back here in Texas tomorrow. At 9:30 P.M. and 11:30 A.M. there, I am pretty sure they’re already on the flight back to Dallas, Texas.
It really feels great to go on a vacation to see family and friends. Traveling with the whole family is somewhat exciting yet exhausting, too. With two toddlers, there might be some issues on keeping the kids sit still. We know how active and curious toddlers are. But like my darling daughter, my cousin’s kids are behaved.
My little one couldn’t wait to see her cousins. She already made a plan that when they get back, they will play at their house and she will tell her about the toys she wants to receive this Christmas. And she said they will go to McDonald’s, to the play area in the mall, and play dress up. How nice!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope y’all had a great celebration. Some you had a dinner date or a trip out of town. I bet you had a great time. Me and my family didn’t go anywhere except having dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant just two three miles from our house. We didn’t drive too far because we know how traffic it can be this occasion is on a Friday. Did you receive something special from your loved ones? Sorry for being nosy. :) Whatever it is, I know it’s given to you sweetly and romantically.
My darling daughter and I went to the grocery store I think yesterday or two days ago to buy a Valentine’s card for daddy. She loves looking and buying greeting cards. She even wanted to buy a birthday card for her Na-na who’s birthday is coming first week of March. So we got one, too. This evening when daddy came home, he had flowers greeting cards, and chocolates for his girls. DD was very excited to see and read her Valentine’s card. It’s so cute! She wanted to know what’s the message in my card so daddy read it to her. She’s just a curious girl.
Now here’s DD with the Valentine’s Day card she received from her daddy. :) She really a loves it. And she couldn’t wait to eat the chocolates so she had two pieces of Hershey’s Kisses.
Pretty little Valentine’s Day card for DD. :)
