Mr. Longfellow Was Right

"There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good
She was very, very good.
And when she was bad she was horrid."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Longfellow's words could (unfortunately? fortunately?) apply to both of my children this week, but Michaela Byrd was the only one sporting the forehead curls when I took the photo.

In between fighting over acorns in the backyard like a couple of strung-out squirrels, running up and down the length of the post office's interior while "knocking" on every door to the P.O. boxes, using an empty Old Navy clothes rack as a stage and attempting to kidnap a mannequin, my girls have been perfect little angels.

Um, yes....

I'm hoping Michaela Byrd chooses the "perfect little angel" persona today, because my friend Christy and I are hosting a Mommy's Morning Out -Holiday Shopping Open House this morning while our older girls are in preschool. She sells Thirty One and I'm hoping people will come to see my Blessings Unlimited Christmas items. Wish us luck!

In other news, the winner of the Blog Design Giveaway from Laura Jane Designs is #19, Barb from Dogmom Diva. Congratulations, Barb! Email me so I can get you in touch with Laura Jane.

*Come back tomorrow for a fun Giveaway from McKenna Layne Designs!

  1. It's nice to hear that other people have perfect little angels too =)

  2. "A couple of strung out squirrels" made me laugh out loud!!! Love it! (and she is beautiful!)

  3. Good luck this morning! Hope the little one is as good as gold today :-)

  4. 'strung out squirrels' is hysterical!

    My ladybug has Shirley Temple curls..and I say that poem to myself several times a day.

  5. Yep, that applies to my little one too. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has those kind of days. Have fun at your shopping party. Hope y'all do well!

  6. My boys fight over rocks and limbs in the backyard all the time....I thought I was the only one who had kiddos that fight over stuff like that:) I hope they are SUPER well behaved for you today!

  7. My grandma use to say that poem. Your daughter looks to sweet to be horrid! Hope you have a good day with the squirrels, I mean girls today!

  8. A holiday open house sounds like a great idea! And surely Michaela Byrd will be in angel form. Surely.

    A curly-haired angel, maybe. :)

  9. But she is so cute!!!!! I hope she was an angel for your sale??!!

  10. Michaela's too cute with her little curls. My mom always wished I had curly hair when I was younger haha!

  11. i always recite that poem to my 7 yr old just because she has curly hair-she loves it! hope your open house went well!

  12. I used to hear that poem from time to time when I was little!
    Hope your open house went really well!

  13. *giggle* Oh but she is so darn cute! I hear you though, some days my kids make me want to pull my hair out. I hope the Open House went well.


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
