Doing anything for the first time is always a big deal. It's always exciting and something to look forward to. (well...perhaps not, if we are talking about the dentist or doctor) But let's stay positive for this post !
Big or small a "new first" always seems to give me little stomach butterflies. So you can imagine how excited I am when I get to see, enjoy and share so many "firsts" in C.A.P's life. And boy, there sure are a lot !
Even though he is still so young I love for him to try new things. I know, I know, he won't remember them all (or maybe not even one) but at least I know he experienced them and I was right there by his side.
So for today's post, I'd like to share one of C.A.P's small and simple "first" with you.
Now before I do, I need to tell you how this all came about...
Okay - who remembers making cardboard box houses when they were younger ? So much fun right ? They were inexpensive, fun to make, and they kept us amused for hours on end.
Well since we are moving TODAY (I'll get to that in another post) we have had many boxes laying around the garage for while now, so I thought it would be fun to build (aka cut a door in a cardboard box the Mr. had already taped together) and paint a little house for C.A.P to play in. And that is just what we did !
I told you it was a "small first" but hey ! It's still a FIRST for him, so bring on the tummy butterflies for Mama. (Might be a mom thing...)
Here are the pictures of the making of the little cardboard house. Hope you enjoy them as we had a blast making it !
Appreciate & enjoy the little things.
Should be everyone's motto.
I will be live from the new house next time I post (eeek)...which hopefully will be on Sunday with the Mr.'s favorite recipe. As long as our Internet/phone/cable guy shows up to "hook us up", I'll be all set ! Can't wait to share lots of new projects in our new home.
Before I go I wanted to send out a BIG Thank you for all the wonderful feedback from Wednesday's post "A letter to the teenage me". I received so many personal emails and comments on how people enjoyed the post and how it really hit home. This is why I've decided to make "Letters to..." a permanent new monthly entry in my blog. Every month I will post a letter I have written to someone or perhaps some think, some will be funny while others may be a bit "sappy", if you will.
Stay tuned for January's "Letter's to..."
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend !
Post ya later !
