This morning a friend asked me to watch her girls for her. She had to go to work, and just needed me to take her 1st grader to school when I took my girls, and her 3 year old to Mother's Day Out at nine o-clock. No problem!

It was an interesting experience having a 3 year old here again. Cassidy is just as cute as a button. She told me about her daddy "who has a dad and a mom, but he's a dad too, and now he's all growed up, and he's really tall."

I went in the bathroom and found purple glitter in the sink. She had purple glitter all around her mouth. "Oh, how sweet, she found the girls play makeup. I'm leaving that on her for her mommy to see." Don't you think Melissa will love picking up her beautiful little cherub with purple glitter all around her lips? I was a little disturbed when I got home and went to clean up the mess and discovered it was not lip gloss. She had gotten into Bookworms art stuff and grabbed her purple glitter glue. Oops. It says it's nontoxic...

Then she was asking me about my salt and pepper shakers. They are Fiesta, so I guess she'd never seen any shaped like that. I just discovered that she shook salt & pepper all over my kitchen counter. It seems she didn't believe me when I told her that was what was in them. She needed to see for herself!

Hey, guess what? I'm slowly doing a mini bathroom remodel. I bought mirrors way back in February. Monday, I manipulated Studmuffin into helping me hang them.

"Hey, Babe? Can I borrow your screw driver? I'm going to take the mirrors in our bathroom down, and hang the ones I bought." And, presto! He was there helping me hang them.

That led to all sorts of stuff. We pulled down our old nickel brushed towel racks. We removed the 4 robe hooks the previous owners had mounted and the 2 hand towel rings that were inconvenient, so they were never used. Today I'm going to Lowe's with a friend to pick out some oil rubbed bronze accessories. Next month I'll replace the light fixtures. And the month after that I'll buy new faucets. Then everything but the tub nozzle and shower nozzle will coordinate. I don't dare grab the tub nozzle yet. That involves a bit more work, and Studmuffin will be complaining enough about having to do faucets...AGAIN. I can't help it. If we wouldn't move into houses that have bottom of the line faucets, I wouldn't feel compelled to upgrade them! You see, Gentle Reader, this is totally not my fault! It just happens this way....

This morning I had to strip and wash every bit of Popcorn's bedding. She had a major nose bleed. It seems that her mother neglected to giver her allergy medicine to her 3 mornings in a row, and now the price must be paid. Someone should seriously smack that child's mother...Of course treating all of the stains and doing extra laundry may be punishment enough....

That led to me deciding to do all of my bedding and Bookworm's bedding today, too. Isn't it funny how one chore always leads to another?

Well, my friend will be here any minute, and heaven forbid she catch me blogging and not diligently cleaning house, or folding laundry, or whatever...I have an image to uphold y'know. So, I'll ramble at ya later!

So, I'm just now buying nickle towel racks for my bathroom to replace the antique gold......Guess I'm way behind. But I didn't want to replace the faucet on the sink too because it is chrome. So we now have a chrome sink faucet, a 'gold' shower faucet handle (thingy) a nickle bath towel rack and an antique gold hand towel ring. Oh and don't forget the hideous light fixtures, gold cabinet pulls and door knob. eclectic....

LOL about having a three year old again and finding 'surprises' throughout the house.

Have fun with your bathroom :-)
