This is what happens when a career change comes into one's life as a single mom. You get more time to spent with your child and make the cool little items that a mom always wants to do with their child. But, there never is enough time!

Sydney picked the candy on top! See how she slaved over them, she even got some flour on her face from working so hard. (DATE BACK!!! Remember the commercial where the mom makes the rice crispy treats and acts like they were so hard by putting flour on her face? Well, that is exactly what we did!)

It was fun making. It really made me feel good when Sydney made the comment that she wanted to be with me next time that she had treat! That this is the best. That no one else has taken the time to make something, they usually go and purchase something. 10 points for mom! Yeah!

She is doing this item called finger sewing. It is very interesting and she is making all kinds of belts, scarfs, bracelets and hair pieces. All the girls at school love it also! She is making it the new trend!

Today was the second day for school and Sydney is at her dad's. She is having a great time and loves her school this year. She has the same teacher as last year and has enjoyed writing over the summer. While talking to her today, I mentioned starting a blog and she could publish her stories on her own blog. So, we are going to start a blog just for her labeled It has not been created but will soon be created. Everyone will be notified when it goes live as it pertains to you reading my blog and Syd's blog. Her first day pictures should be here soon and I will post them.

Sharing my Pix's

Getting Hooked!

I am going to get hooked on this! Just finished reading my sister-in-law's and had too many posts that she has to approve. This is going to be easier than physically writing in a journal and it will track my stories that I tell about Sydney!
