Back in January I was spending the week in Wisconsin (mentioned in a previous post) taking my sister-in-law's 3 of 4 children to their schools. They live in a rural community and SIL and BIL decided that their public school just weren't meeting the kids needs. So, they decided to send the two little ones to a Charter school and the older one to a different HS. It was a great decision because the kids are just learning by leaps and bounds!! But, it is a 50 mile round trip from their house to the schools and back home!
So, with kids in tow we had some pleasant chatty mornings! But, one of those mornings I got carried away with making up silly names. The middle girl got very upset.....which I learned later.....over the name I gave her. In fact, she made a big deal of it in front of other family members when she decided to reveal it. I just smiled and said "no problem, from now on I will only call you Courtney" (her real name). But, I did not apologize to her. She's 9 and I think having issues with self-esteem so maybe that is wrapped up in all of this as well. So, this went to her along with a Valentine's care package (Valentine theme Magic Pillowcases, cookies, candy, art supplies, etc.) to the whole family. Probably in 10 years she won't remember a thing...at least I hope so!!
I dug out this set which is so whimsical and child friendly. I used a bunch of older things that just need using up. Like those felt flowers and that green paper lacy trim. Thanks for looking!
