i carved a pumpkin/jack o' lantern stamp collection. if you follow me on instagram you will know that i carved these awhile ago and have recently (as in yesterday night) finished an autumn leaves collection as well. i have been posting things seriously late on this blog, but maybe someday i'll catch up... we'll see. anyway, my little ladies have been having a blast with these stamps and i plan to share some of their creative work soon... along with that leaf collection.
was hoping to give this sweet little thing some love and a fresh coat of paint. i planned to paint it all summer, but i couldn't decide on a color (mostly because i'm just not sure where it will end up in the house). i finally just decided to go with white paint and iron hardware, but now i'm loosing the weather... once again... we'll see.
our bunny... i feel things are going well. i am constantly surprised how much there is to learn about these little critters though. example, i have been finding some strange white stuff in his litter box and thought something was wrong with him... then after some research found that this is normal they just pee out extra calcium and that i should switch him from alfalfa pellets to timothy hay pellets... but since he's still so young alfalfa should be fine for now... okay.
the chicken tractor is borrowed from my in-laws. the bunny loves it. and yes, we do put his litter box in there. that thing goes everywhere he does so that he always uses it... we clean it out every other day. it has pet litter made from paper, and always fresh hay. did you know that they need hay in their litter box? another one of those strange things... they need it to stimulate their digestive system.
alright... enough bunny talk.
we are officially pet sitters for our big white friend. he is so sweet and so beautiful. we all adore him. i feel like it's the perfect situation. we are going to get to watch him a couple weekends a month (if it works out for us), and get our dog fix.... it really builds up that dog need. then we also don't have the full commitment of a dog, which these dog sitting visits show us we are not quite ready for.
oh, i sure love him though. doesn't he look like a polar bear?
we are also in our second cycle of the tooth fairy.
our older two went through a cycle together... although layla does still have a few baby teeth. now though, eislee is starting the cycle all over again and i know ollie will not be far behind her. eislee lost her second tooth last night... and the tooth fairy may have forgot to come, ahem. luckily the tooth had fallen to the floor, so i pointed out that the tooth fairy probably just missed it since she was expecting it to be under the pillow and that we should try again tonight.
this houses' tooth fairy is a bit of a forgetful type, but she has been known to give stickers if she misses two nights in a row... sometimes they almost hope for a miss.
when my son lost his last baby tooth, the tooth fairy actually missed like five nights in a row. then, the last night before he headed up to bed, he stopped and asked me... "mom, do you think the tooth fairy will actually remember to come tonight?" with a raised eyebrow and a hint of sarcasm in his voice. i just laughed and said "hopefully" with a wink. just another reason i am learning to love my babies growing up. these kids... what would i do without them?
