So, Wednesdays Mateus goes to child-care and I have the whole day for me and Lucas... and housework.... and catching up with e-mails..... checking the many forums I participate in......... reading blogs....... writing posts............ and scrapping? Oh well, I think I planned a little bit too much for Wednesdays. I am the queen of procrastinating, and today I realised how much I “left for Wednesday”. There is no way I could get everything done, so maybe there will be no scrapping today :( oh well, I gave up scrapping for sleep on the weekend, I can survive this time since I am actually getting other things done.

Hubby asked if I wanted to keep the car so I could go out and buy a DVD player for our son (his DVD broke) and I almost had a heart attack. If I kept the car I would have to take Matty to care and buy the time I am back and get everything else done, it is lunchtime. Before I know it is 5 o clock and I have to go pick him up, never accomplishing much on these days, so I was VERY happy when I convinced him Matty could wait till the weekend.

So, I posted in 4 different places today, please go have a look if you have time:
A Tutorial for the Scrapblog (in Portuguese only, sorry)
A Product Spotlight at Dani Mogstad’s team blog – Girl Talk
A Product Spotlight at Traci Reed’s team blog – Hawt Mamas
A page for the SMJ team blog (I am a guest for this month, I think I forgot to mention!)

And before I go, some eye candy that has a story behind, but I didn’t have the guts to record the bad part of it.

The good part:
Lucas overcame his fear of grass in just under a week, going into the tulip farm one week and this was Floriade on the weekend. Journaling: A week earlier you were screaming you didn’t want to be left on the grass, and now look at you in awe of the flowers. It is a pleasure to witness your wonder and discovery of the world.

The bad part:
Floriade, if you know, is a flower festival we have here in Canberra in September, and obviously people shouldn’t go near the flower beds. Well, as you can see in the picture, I let Lucas crawl up a flower bed….. got so “involved” with admiring him enjoying the flowers and taking pictures I didn’t really think much of it. When I picked him up to look for daddy and his brother, Alex was quite upset, and said he was embarrassed by what I did. So much so the outing was cut short and we went back home right away. So sad. I still feel bad for it. At least the photos were priceless :)

Now I am going to catch up with my forums :) TTFN hehe

Well, I think the photos you took with your boy in the flowers are awesome! They will last long after the embarrassment has gone! Love the LO, it's beautiful. You have been busy. I know what you mean, I hate it when I have to have the car for some reason- pack up all the kids, drive hubby, come home, unload. It's not worth it!

I love the photos! Nothing to be embarrassed about! My gf went to Floriade, too. She chatted about it on her blog!
