Come on!

Filed under: carmen, me, mess of the day — Jana @ 2:12 pm

Now is it really smart of me to pile so many things on my plate, when I can barely keep a handle on what I’ve got going on so far? I guess we’ll see.

With the launch of my new Etsy shop, I have been feeling totally excited and also a little like a duck on the pond… Smooth sailing on the surface, but under the water I am paddling a million miles a minute. and by the way, I realize that most of the stuff I have in my Etsy shop is for cold weather, so I have listened to you guy’s suggestions and I am working on making some binky clips and barrettes to put in my shop also.

I made my first-sale-ever yesterday, which was awesome (thanks Lindsie)! While I was trying to figure out how to do the whole paypal/shipping stuff, my darling sweet child detected a weak point in the armor and ambushed.

When I went down stairs after a few too many quiet minutes, this is what I found:

Is it just a little ironic that her shirt says “a little bit of SWEETNESS”?

Yes I realize I have way too many of these kinds of moments, I swear I always watch my kid… I must have given birth to a samurai or something, this child has a sixth sense of when I get distracted for a few minutes. I couldn’t even be mad at her, it was so ridiculous, I just had to grab the camera. After stripping her of her powdered sugar clothes, I noticed she had chocolate on her face… Now where did that come from… Oh yeah… the chocolate covered macadamia nuts Eve gave me!

It’s just a good thing there were nuts in those bad boys, or she may have eaten the entire box!

Anyway, I’m sure she will grow out of this stage… And I will resume my chill state of mind someday. I think I need to add another category to my cloud: mess of the day. And to think, I want to have another one!

On another subject, I have been meaning to pass this blog along to any of my twilight loving girls that may not have seen it on Niki’s site:

Twilight series for dummies

This guy’s blog, Normal Mormon Husbands, is so hilarious! His other posts are as funny as the twilight post! I don’t read many blogs by guys but this one is so funny, I had to add it to my yahoo reader.



  1. Oh my gosh, I am cracking up over here. It is hilarious that Carmen would bite until she got to a macadamia nut and then move onto the next one. The sugar mess is also very impressive.

    Yay for your first sale (of many!)

  2. i think your child and my child took the class together–or else they were born with that gene……it never fails when i am trying to get out the door in a hurry, that’s when she brings on the total destruction!

  3. That Twilight post was great. Especially since it gave a shout out to my 2 boyfriends, Edward AND Sawyer. Sigh.

    And I think Carmen may be an even bigger Ninja than Belle. Those pictures are AWESOME. The half eaten chocolates = priceless!

  5. Carmen is pretty darn funny, but that Twilight post is hilarious. I kinda want Greg to go eat a popsicle right now!

  7. What’s scary is that Tristan is only a few months younger than Carmen…do I really have this mischief to look forward to?! PS – Thanks for the suggestions on my new blog name. :)

  8. I bet she managed to do all that in less time than it takes to go to the bathroom! She’s such a cutie, though, no wonder you grabbed the camera!

  11. Exactly how long did it require you to write “Come

    Thanks -Lawanna
