Imagine (FMF)

So, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right. Five Minute Friday

 

I have this rusty old word that has been in my garden for over 10 years now–I see it each and every time I leave my house on the endless loops of pick ups and drop offs, grocery shopping, the doctors, dentists, speech therapist, occupational therapists, . . . you get the idea.

But I also see it when I’m strolling out to get the mail and turn a chore into a mini vacation, or when I watch my “baby” learn how to ride his bike with training wheels.  I see it in the spring as the flowers bloom and when the snow falls.

I love this quote:

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than

knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

Albert Einstein

I use my imagination everyday–in my knitting, in my writing, in creating a fun way to do the repetitive tasks . . . it just makes my life never dull and never boring!

We are so blessed to have a God who gives us such and amazing gift of imagination!

Bedwetting 101 or not quite Potty Trained

My husband had a great idea to clear out the linen closet and found an old vinyl table-cloth and a raggy old sheet and jokingly said “is this an heirloom?”

My reply was matter of fact and sincere.  “No, it is for when the kids wet the bed!” and I kept working.  He reminded me that our kids are WELL past the bed wetting stage and I reminded him of:

  • our move
  • illness . . . to many to list
  • too many late nights in a row
  • too many hours in the pool
  • Kindergarten (first week)
  • 1st grade (first week)
  • a new therapist (new demands and another personality to deal with)
  • a developmental milestone–like learning how to ride a bike or swing by pumping your legs

My kids have all had their share of stress induced bedwetting.  So I found an awesome solution.

An old vinyl tablecloth and an old sheet.  If you cover the mattress pad with the table-cloth–it prevents the mattress pad and mattress from getting soaked.  (IN THE EVENT OF FLU–THIS IS AN GREAT WAY TO JUST CLEAN ONE LAYER OF PUKE OFF OF THINGS :-)

  • clean up is easier (1 sheet and wiping off the tablecloth)
  • it is portable (like for the cabin or a hotel room)
  • it is discreet!

So those of you who are following my not-quite-hoarding issues–I took this final picture AND threw out the tablecloth and cut the sheet up and used it for cleaning the deck!

Do you have a great solution to a common kid problem?  I’d love to hear it!

Be Blessed.

View (FMF)

This is what I want my view to be . . .

I want to be at the cabin this weekend, but instead I’m a soccer Mom.  I’m enjoying this season–I know it will be fleeting.

Joining up with all my other FMF friends with Lisa-Jo.
