the print makers assitant...


Afternoon at the blue house. Minnie asked yesterday to do some printing but given it was about 7.30pm, I promised that we would print our little hearts out today. So this afternoon out came the screen, the paint, the stand-in squeegee (no idea what happened to the real one), and lots of paper.


As you can see from the photos Minnie knows her stuff. Yes, the paint may have bled a little (not really printing ink you see) but she hasn't got her prints listed in an Etsy shop yet so I think its OK...


But like all activities with a toddler, they can be over in 1/50th of the time they take to set up.

Oh and I forgot to tell you all that Minnie has been out of nappies for about 2 1/2 months. We thought it was never going to happen and with the move and Alice dying we didn't push it. Then it just happened. 2 weeks after the move to no nappies in the day, she wanted to stop wearing nappies at night. No accidents yet. We get very cute little wake up calls at 5.00am 'potty please' - can't be cross about that. I was a little sad actually - no nappies, weaned in May - no longer a baby....

So its big girl nickers now. But as Minnie is a very little big girl, the smallest sizes fall down if there are no clothes holding them up.
Sadly, her mother doesn't share this problem...

how old is minnie rach??? My little chicki is almost 2 and a half but wont budge on the toilet thing...however when we are in the pool she will get out and wee on the grass out of her own volition!!!! Very frustrating...sooo many people told me A. the second child is usually faster to get out of nappies and B. girls are easier to train than boys...certainly not in my case!!!

PS I think those prints are bordering on etsy worthy..just a little practise and you might be onto something!!!

Oh Rach that looks great.
She is so gorgeous. We said after sunday just how cute she is. She makes my little lady look like a giant.
I believe she has her mummy's crafty talents...lucky little girl.

Well done to Millie on the toilet training front.... My little princess Connie, 2 years and 2 months, is still in nappies but wears knickers too.... She wants to have a nappy on but wants to go to the big girl toilet when she needs to do a wee or a poo, go figure....

Take Care

Minnie's prints are so sweet! She is quite talented!!! (I think I know where she got it from)

Too adorable!
We've recently made the switch to knickers here as well. Gymboree seem to be a lot smaller than the undies here, shame about the exchange rate though.

That print is the bomb - seriously awesome. LOVE IT!

Go Minnie with the knickers. That's fantastic.
