Macro

DSC01390DSC01391We bought a really (REALLY) great camera last November. For the longest time I simply did no use it. I finally got the nerve to touch it and now I really want to become more acquainted with it. But, it’s a technical tool and I am just overwhelmed by it. So, I’ve been trying to fiddle it with it and these latest posted pics are some of the results. I took these two in our garden with the macro setting. Still needs work.

I want to learn how to use this tool now; now that we have young children. I don’t want to take a workshop when I am older and retired. I want to capture my children’s great moments now. Why is it that now, (when our kids are young) and we need this knowledge, we are too busy with them to learn to use a tool? 

A Perfect Mother would be intelligent enough to figure out this contraption on her own, without a workshop or community college course. Like a big girl………

Dragon Kite

Dragon Kite

On Sunday, we flew the kite. It was our first time. We purchased the kite last spring but never got a chance to use it until now, a year later. Time waits for no one. And so it travels along until you realize it has passed.

Queenie’s favourite part was letting go and watching Daddy or me chase it. Wonderboy enjoyed holding the reel so he could fly it. The best part, aside from the glorious weather, was the ease with which one could fly this lovely dragon kite. What a lovely thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.

A Perfect Mother (in this case parents) would have sailed this kite the day she (they) bought it and continued sailing it on every-sunny-with-slight-wind day after that! Let’s hope for more sunny, kite flying, type of days, shall we?

KINeSYS Sunscreen for Children

Ta-da!! I finally found spray on sunscreen for Wonderboy and Queenie that according to EWG is safe! I purchased it today at Costco, $18.99 for 2 bottles, 120mL each. I grabbed 4 because I know that come summer, these will be a challenge to locate. Check out EWG here.

A Perfect Mother would have located this product years ago, even perhaps before birth!

Heavens to murgatroyd! Who thinks of this stuff?

Purple Thing Monster Spray

Purple Thing Monster Spray

Thankfully, we don’t need this stuff at our house yet… and I hope never. I sure do think this is a clever idea and marketing strategy! It comes in various scents: Blue Boogie, Pink Prickles, Green Blob and Purple Thing. If you need some, you can get it here. It’s apparently organic and not harmful to spray.

Ahhhhh!!
Monsters beware!

A Perfect Mother would make her own all natural Monster Spray!
