Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real 6


Beautiful inside and out!
Maura Byrne babysat Alleluia two years ago when I went through Level 2 training of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd curriculum.  They haven't seen each other in a long while, so when we bumped into her after Mass I had to get a photo!  Maura has started a wonderful ministry, Made in His Image: Seeing Beauty in Suffering


Solar-powered waving Queen.

Some friends went to England recently and brought me back this waving figure of the Queen Mother.  I'm keeping her above my kitchen sink on the windowsill--she makes me happy!


Drowning in pool toys......
My in-laws gave us their inflatable pool and we set it up right away.  Look what happens when you stick a hose in one end of the noodle!


My son took this photo while I was presenting Color Box 2 to Alleluia this week.  It's "real" because you can see the laundry I was just folding in the lower left and the vacuum cleaner I was also just using in the lower right!  As moms we don't have a lot of time to sit down with our kids, but we try to make the most out of what we have, don't we?


  1. I love your post -- you captured it all. That last photo is actually beautiful!

  2. Thanks! I reckon lots of moms of toddlers would feel at home in our Sunroom/Montessori Room--but you can see why I call my blog "Montessori Messy"! LOL :)
