toddler chores.. why not right??

video

they love it so why not right??
what I let Emma do-
swiffer the floor- yeah you'll for sure have to follow, but she'll have so much fun with it.
wipe off the table- I sprayed she wiped.. got it clean!
load the dish washer- she did pretty good, looked like her uncle john did it ;)
push up a chair to mix stuff- you'll always have to mix a second time.
put groceries away- be prepared to have everything thrown in there.
pick up toys- until they throw them back on the floor.

Project Life/project planning: desicions

I'm not kidding this is one of the toughest decisions... 

what Project Life edition do I go with for 2013???
lol 
but no really it is.
This will be how your entire 3rd year scrapbook will look like, and as always Becky doesn't make it easy....
She finds the BEST designers out there. So here is the two choices and I'll need help from our readers to decide which to go with-
Seafoam by Elise Cripe

I've been a fan of Elise forever. Let's say its a big crush okay... secretly I stalk her blog so much it comes up as frequent sites and its bookmarked in my top 10 links. 
I love Seafoam's simplicity and graphics. I love nothing more than a nice chevron. I'm kinda afraid that it might be too "boyish" for her album. I always like when there is black as part of the kit because I write everything in black. 
next is 
Olive by Heather Bailey 

now I'm new to Heather Bailey, but Becky didn't slip on the decision to bring her on!! I'm so in love with this color scheme. I feel a true Emma feel to it. Its full of strong graphics and great layout for the journal cards. The only thing that scares me is how "strong" of a kit that it is. I never want the kit to overpower. There isn't black in the kit either, so I'm not sure about what color I would do all my journaling in... I really don't like to do colors simply because I want the journaling to stand out! 
hmmmm told you, tough decisions.
So please help!!!

We Will-August 2012

Well we officially made it through that month. I read where someone said how they embraced the madness...  That is EXACTLY what I did this month. 
Between work, home, life, projects, and oh you know raising a 2 year old I'm learning to "just go with it"
I may be entirely short staffed at work, working 12 hour shifts to cover, trying to keep up with the endless house work, keeping up with the everyday things that go along with a two year old, and giving up all extra mommy time... but I'm embracing it and moving on to the month of August with a clear head and light heart. I'm going to start a We Will post at the beginning of every month. They were inspired by Elise's I Choose posts. It will be mine and Emma's take on it. It will be our goals set together for each month.
August 2012-

I love to take stuff and just put a mommy and me twist on it!!
