In light of back to school, I found this fabulous Eco conscious craft quite appropriate this week. This simple project not only follows my favorite recycle and reuse philosophy, but it also provides a super cool way for kiddos to carry their sandwich for lunch.
This Tuesday's Tidbit is taken straight from my current issue of Family Fun. I discovered this project way in the back on page 115, I almost missed it actually. And for this reason I would like to share it with you because it is really fabulous and I think it deserves to be noticed.
So you take a used gallon milk jug and give it a refreshing and cleansing super bath, say through your dishwasher. After super bath, draw the below pictured lines on this milk jug. A few snips and folds and Voila your kiddo has a recycled way to tote that fabulous sandwich you made for him to school!
If you would like to see the original Family Fun instructions, follow the link and have a look see!! I am just loving this fabulous idea. I have even got my Pink Haired Momma wheels a turning on how I could decorate and personalize these little babies to add some flare and personality!! Hmmmm...
Today I made a discovery; I am in fact a momma.
On any given day my wardrobe might just be a very slim line between pajamas and work out clothes. The distinction is sometimes incredibly hard to decipher. I am sorry. I like to be comfortable while chasing Baby DIVA around in her corvette all about the casa de Pink Haired Momma. Baggy comfy pants and tank tops are my friends.
Well these ensembles do provide an easy transition to bed clothes and up again morning clothes. And i never have to worry about middle of the night race to the street naked runs because i think the house in on fire and the neighbors see my post baby flabby goods. This ease from day wear to night wear is reason actually that brought me to the discovery that I made this morning, that I am in fact a MOMMA.
So, I am sporting some lovely sea foam green comfy Capri's with a perfectly blended brown tank top. I wore this lovely get up yesterday and also crashed in it over night, after removal of sports bra of course. Well this morning I awoke a tad bit late, as it is Granny visit day, and quickly prepared Baby DIVA for her chauffeured ride to her Great Great Grandmothers house. After a quick bite to eat at a lovely little joint with my mom (public location), I took my green pants self and Baby DIVA over to Granny’s.
This is where it happened. Granny asked me with enthusiasm, “What is that there on your pants, Hun?”. And then I recalled the situation.
Last night while Baby DIVA enjoyed her fabulous prunes meal, an accident occurred which sent a huge glob of prunes to a resting place on my pants, my crotch no less. I got up and wiped it clean but it did in fact leave a huge stain. Well I finished feeding Baby DIVA, made dinner, cleaned the house, took care of Hubbs-to-be and passed smooth out, never again remembering the glob that was once on my pants. Then after sleeping late this morning, again it didn't occur to me.
So yes I am the Pink Haired Momma who didn't change out of her pajama day wear from yesterday and obviously didn't shower this morning, and YES I dined at a restaurant this morning with a stain glob of prunes of my sea foam green pants. The funny thing is, I don't really care. That right there sealed the deal that Yep, it is official I have joined the motherhood.
Hey and don't judge me on not changing and no shower, you know you are sitting there thinking about the last time you showered too, way back when! And probably checking your pants right now to make sure you too don't have a prune crotch stain!
Ha! Have a great weekend!
