Paper Dolls for Boys

Raising 2 crafty boys and thrifting every chance I get.

Really? March 12, 2009

Do they really need to include  instructions for how to sit in a bean bag chair?  What I really needed was a few tips on how to shove the insert into the cover.  I need a massage after wrestling 2 of those bad boys into their monogrammed denim shells.  Seriously strenuous.


Funny, I did not need to tell him how to do this:


This was pre-cover.  They ship them separately for maximum drama.  And that’s a tattoo on his foot just in case you were wondering, Egyptian god (all the 2 year olds are getting them).


The 3rd installment of giveaway goodness are these vintage salt & pepper shakers.  They are in mint condition, replete with their foil label on the bottom.  You know every day I post what I am giving away I have doubts, “Do I really want to part with this?”.  But I am challenging myself to let go of “stuff” and I have to say it’s feeling good.  So here is more of my stuff to clutter decorate your home with!  But I am having pangs so I reserve the right to break your heart and switch these out for something else.  Sorry!

But don’t forget to leave a comment here for your chance to be a WINNER!

    Well, if you gave them away somewhere where you could, you know, VISIT THEM, then it’s not like they really left home!

    (Hint hint)

    It’s not a joke, but more an appreciation for motherhood…..
    (and very long)

    1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2,000 sq. foot house four inches deep.

    2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with rollerblades, they can ignite.

    3. A 3-year-old’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

    4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a superman cape. It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20X20 foot room.

    5. You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using the ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

    6. The glass in windows (even double pane) doesn’t stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

    7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words “Uh-oh”, it’s already too late.

    8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

    9. A six-year-old can start a fire with a flint rock, even though a 36-year-old man says they only do it in the movies. A magnifying glass can start a fire even on an overcast day.

    10. Certain Lego’s will pass right through the digestive tract of a four-year-old.

    11. Play Dough and Microwave should never be used in the same sentence.

    12. Super glue is forever.

    13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can’t walk on water.

    14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

    15. VCR’s do not eject PB&J sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

    16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

    17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

    18. You probably do not want to know what that odor is.

    19. Always look in the oven before you turn it on. Plastic toys do not like ovens.

    20. The fire department in Austin has a 5 minute response time.

    21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earth worms dizzy. It will however make cats dizzy and cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

    I don’t know. It just doesn’t seem like he’s doing it right.

  4. complete stranger Says:

    Those instructions are pretty hilarious! And the wee one looks happy to be lost in it!

    Glad to see you found some bean bag chairs! I bet your boys love them.
