Chasing Shadows

It's amazing how babies find even the most ordinary things so interesting.  It kind of makes me sad to think that as we mature and get older, we lose that incredible sense of imagination we had as kids.  The games and self-entertaining that children, and even babies, come up with makes me realize how powerful their little sponge brains really are.  We adults are just not mentally equipped in the same way- we slowly drift from fantasy and inventiveness to reality and logic- and I have to admit I'm a little jealous of their mind power.

But I am having a lot of fun playing along with Niall's ideas and games (I have to give him full credit because I'm just following his lead).  Slowly but surely, I'm actually starting to remember how my mind worked back then and I'm coming up with some decent ideas for playing, but nowhere near the caliber of what these guys can do.

So this morning, the sun was shining perfectly through our 4 pane kitchen window and I noticed Niall trying to pick up the window squares' shadows that were cast on the floor.  I quickly turned my kid thinking mode on and decided to mess with him a little.  Niall was so confused, but just as determined as ever...

  1. I love reading your blog. I check it out all the time hoping for new posts!

    I hope you don’t mind --- I’ve been telling all my friends about your blog.

    I printed 100 free business cards with my 10 favorite websites (yours was #1!!) and handed them out at our last Mommy Meet-up.

    It made me wonder if you had ever done that for yourself? Do you ever meet anyone at a coffeeshop or a playground and start talking about blogging? Maybe you could print up some cards to hand out. Just an idea!

    In return for inspiring me, I wanted to pass on these money saving tips to you:
    -- 100 Free business cards at

    In case you decide to get something else printed from them (besides the FREE business cards!) I also wanted to tell you about their unlimited use promo code - it never expires and you can use it again and again:
    -- 10% off promo code “RTPS10”

    FYI: I’ve used this company to print fliers and signs for Church events and even yard sales. The quality is really good compared to what I’ve gotten from VistaPrint and others that offer FREE business cards.

    I hope you have a great week. I’ll be checking back soon. Bye!

  2. Hey Rebecca, I'm glad you enjoy the blog! Feel free to send your friends over, I'd love to have the extra readers :) Sounds like a great deal with the business cards, I'll have to check it out. Thanks!
