It's the Little Things...


Mr. S. walked into the kitchen last weekend only to discover my nine-months-pregnant-almost-due self perched on top of a stool, cleaning the top of the fridge.

"Uh-oh.....how many days have we got, then?" he said. You see, the last time 'round I did perfectly reasonably things like scrub the inside of the washing machine and the dishwasher right before Safiya was born. So Mr. S. is, understandably, a little freaked out :-)

Of course, impending baby is a great motivator, so there have been lots of little things accomplished lately, which is awesome. Like handles on the kitchen cabinets:


Like me finally sewing curtains for the bedroom (thanks to my friend Sandra who passed the raw goods on for me to work with!):


Like, having given up on being able to tie running shoes and degenerated into Euro-not-cool-in-any-way style 'cause I just didn't care anymore:


to redeeming myself with a $5.99-Value-Village bit of slip-on relief and cuteness:


Now, if I could just figure out how to get nailpolish onto those far-away toes......

I can SO hear him saying that! Tone of voice and everything! But the knobs on the cupboards are a mistake, as you'll find out in a year. Dugal can open not only the cupboards (which are now inconvenient with those stupid child-proof latch thingies), he can now pull open the drawers, then lean on them as he reaches in to grab something tantalizing, then cry as he pinches his poor little fingers AGAIN. The stepstool now usually lives in front of the pot drawers.

And my word verification is wonderful: ingenu.

Really wonderful kitchen cabinets. I think the baby is coming a great motivator, so many have been of little things out lately, which is really good news.
