It’s time for another installment of Life With Kids, where I post an assortment of images captured when the kids aren’t around, but evidence of them is. If it makes me laugh, sigh, swoon, scratch my head in confusion or yelp in pain (you’ll see why in a moment) I take a picture, and there is never a shortage of material around here. This week, I’m linking up with Stasha of little boy and big dog fame, aka @NorthwestMommy. Before she became famous for her stunning photography, she was known for her listicles…a list of 10 “somethings” each and every Monday. This week she featured my topic and I can’t wait to see everyone’s photos.
10 Photos of Life With Kids
I’m a sucker for cozy swaddled babies and the kids who make them so.
As if Legos weren’t painful enough, the arrows point to “caltrops”- weapons commonly-used by ninjas. This deadly combo can be found around my house any given day, but especially at night…in the dark.
Or as my 3-year-old said, “Pretty!” She was just applying a little makeup.
My kids’ imaginations never cease to amaze me. Here, some firewood, books and handheld weights have been transformed into a rowboat. They paddled with those wooden dowels and sang Row, row, row your boat at the top of their lungs earlier in the day.
Good old-fashioned, open-ended play dough fun. Looks like everybody’s sporting a new play dough hairdo.
Or “OT,” if you’re an emerging writer and reader. Found this sign on the door to their room, just under the Scholastic poster.
Lego/playdough ice cubes anyone?
There goes the Craigslist resale value of this doll house. My 5-year-old can’t help but redecorate her toys and clothes with markers, and I can’t help but let her. So long as it’s not the walls we rent, I’m good.
Saw this on my daughter’s top bunk. Love that she set this up next to her pillow. It’s not accurate- missing a few kids in the bed and on the floor next to the bed- but it’s sweet.
Can you tell how much my 7-year-old son loves Calvin and Hobbes? I love passing by his room and hearing him read the strips out loud to himself or his younger siblings.
Hope you enjoyed this installment of Life with Kids. Until next time! Aummmm….
