For a long time I have wanted to get a chalkboard for my kitchen. I am ALWAYS writing things down because I have the WORST memory! For real! Is there something you can eat to help with that? Seriously i'm really bad, so if you ever notice I forgot about you for something, don't take it personal. So I wanted something different and more fun/modern. so I have been looking online at some and I didn't want to spend $50 plus shipping and exchange which is all ridiculous. So I was in Staples here and I found a simple plain chalkboard for $19.95! So I decided to spruce it up in my own way.
BeforeAfter! (click on it to see it better) Kyla drew a picture on the bottom if you can't tell. I know i'm an awesome artist but this time i'll give Kyla the credit...
So now for the close call. Dustin and I were getting the babies dressed for bed in the livingroom on the mainfloor last night and we sent Kyla upstairs to get some pj's for bed. She was upstairs and we heard the loudest bang and then Kyla freaking out. I said "Run Dustin!" (I was nursing Jayci) I set her down and went up and her dresser was tipped over and she was on the floor beside it. (Luckily!) She got out of the way just in time. But it scraped up her back before she got away. I took a picture but it doesn't show very good. She is so lucky. Her dresser is heavy and full of clothes! She was opening the bottom drawer, I knew that because of what shirt she had on the floor beside her and plus she showed us what she did. But we tried to pull a drawer open and rocked the dresser to see how sturdy it was and it didn't seem that easy to tip over. So we think it was too far away from the wall. Anyways we are so lucky she didn't get crushed! She is a scrony little skeleton so she would of had no chance. She was smart to move out of the way and one lucky little girl! It definately freaked me out too!
I also want to update on a few things too, more for me (to remember) lol. Both the babies are pulling themself to standing and even starting to "cruise." Jayci is now saying "dadda and mamma", and knowing what they mean. She even said "hi dad!" on Sunday morning! Seriously, I thought it was fluke but she kept copying me, like 10 times! Then she said it again to my sister later that day, so who knows! I think Presley is getting it too. They can both wave hi, which I love! I love the stage where they start to mimic you, Kyla was so good at that and I think that's why she learned how to talk well so early. Anyways those are the main things I wanted to update on. Also I am getting a lot of blogging in lately, I guess my life hasn't been as boring!
