The Best Thing About Today

Summer Dresses!

(Scarlett in her sundress with her head-less mom. She just woke up and this was as close to posing as she'd do).

Only in Calgary will you appreciate this. It's April 30th, and we're still in winter clothes. The puffy winter coat was also worn this week, and winter boots, during the freak snowstorm. It is still cold, although it is is trying so hard to be spring.

I finally unpacked Scarlett's summer clothes and it made me instantly happier. She won't be able to wear them without extra layers, but they are so pretty and dressy and colorful, that they make me smile. She likes them better too, as she tore off her long sleeved t-shirt (in black) to put on a green and yellow sundress. Which she is now sleeping in. The plan was to wash them up and hang them in the closet but I think we'll be seeing them everyday from now on.

I'm not sure where my restraint was when I was shopping for Scarlett, but we have enough clothes for 2 little girls. I suppose my dirt loving girl will need all of those extra outfits.

What could be better? Running on the lawn in barefeet perhaps? We'll wait a little bit longer for that one.

Network Care for Kids

I chanced upon this video about Kids and Network Care. This is the technique that we use in the office for everyone under care, and I love that it is so effective for kids. Watch it!

Better Than Toys

We were "Networking" last week. Elan Family Wellness Centre set up a table with the Goddess Mommies Group, in celebration of their 3 1/3 anniversary. We were all at Stir Crazy Fun Centre, so the kiddies got to run around in their huge facility. It was fun all around, and lots of new faces to meet. Then we came home and Scarlett took a liking to the goodie bags with all of the brochures, business cards, give-aways, etc. She unpacked the bag, packed it, carried it around, just like a toy. I have now corrupted her-instead of toys, my daughter plays with business cards. Instead of playing dress up, she comes to the office and plays at "adjusting". I'm waiting to see what's next!
