For the past 10+ years I’ve had my clothes in a closet or random bins. I told Dave I majorly needed a dresser! I looked on FB marketplace and at resale shops for a while and found this set on FB marketplace (I have love hate with marketplace but this was 😍😍😍) and snagged them! They were solid wood and even had little drawers dividers along with drawer stoppers so I knew this was the set for me. They were very dark wood and that’s not me so for the past two weeks I’ve been sanding and painting and this is what turned out! Swipe to see the original set.
Kansas! There’s a lot of beauty here and I’m glad to call it home.
Today this girl passed and finished up ISR and I am so so proud of her. I know she won’t remember it, but trust me, I will. I won’t lie to you and tell you it was easy! It was one of the most hard things I’ve had to do. Seeing your baby cry every day for 5 weeks straight was horrible. But you know what? She floated for two minutes straight, while crying of course. She got placed in the pool as if she had slipped in and she came up and floated. She got placed faced in and she rolled to her back, screamed and then floated. She’s doing it! Today when she finished, I was the one who cried. I’m just so thankful. I also want to say that ISR won’t be used as a crutch or a safety thing to leave her alone by the water. It’s only for emergencies, like if she sneaks away from me, which kids are good at. Next year when she can run and walk we will do phase 2 which will be more of swim, float, swim. And lastly, I can’t say it enough, teach your children water safety and how to swim. It’s vital! Drowning is one of the number one causes of deaths in children and it’s just so sad. Don’t leave your kids unattended by water, ever! And that includes the bathtubs. If you have any questions about ISR or swim lessons please let me know!
Literally tried all day to get a picture with Juliette looking at the camera and she finally did when we were in garden clothes 🤪. Such a sweet 1st Mother’s Day with this baby. Swipe to see all the photo attempts 😂
