The fact that your daughter was able to laugh this off speaks volumes about her character. I'm sure you are proud! (and as a mom, I'd be a bit peeved at the guy too! ;)

Yes of course you need something to sit on when you visit! ;o)

You're a Good Mom.


Your daughter sounds awesome. Aren't kids and in my case grands just great!


You sound alot like my mom! Moms are the best! Dads are great too...but there is just something about moms! Erin, sounds like a great lady...just like her mom!


Dede's Ella is kinda cute.

Ella is adorable....such a tedious job she looks like, too! Wow.
What a horrible story about the couch $$. You are a sweet Mom to help them out!!



Erin seems like a lovely girl, full of compassion and humor. I wonder where she gets that. LOL. Bless your heart Mom for sending that check.

I love Ella as much as I loved Jake. That's another felted animal right? I love the parasol, tell Dede, nice touch. So dainty, much like Ella. LOL

Speaking of felt, did the flower kit ever come to be? Don't tell me I missed it!!!


You are a wonderful mom, Charlotte. I was thinking I would do the same thing for my girls. Love the elephant and all the inspiration and warm fuzzies I get from visiting your blog. Jen
