Three Things At Once

Thank you to Grandma Bear who sent Baby Bear a big bag of Easter treats! They are being enjoyed sparingly, or at least that is what I thought until I caught sight of the chocolate bunny. (Baby Bear was told she could eat just the ears.)

Baby Bear is (finally) on he verge of loosing another tooth! She lost her first 2 within days of each other last summer. You can see the one on the bottom right is ready to let go anytime. There are also 3 more that have decided to abandon ship in the near future. Baby Bear told me today she wants to have a no teeth smile for her spring school pictures. So, with that as our goal I better go dust off the pliers.

Baby Bear spotted this really cute skirt in Old Navy last month, and really wanted one. I would have bought it for her if it hadn't been almost $25! So in secret I dug through my fabric stash and came up with this handmade version of the name brand thing! She LOVES it! She wore it to church the last 2 Sundays. I am grateful I have the talent to make her pretty things, and save Papa Bear a few bucks too!
It is spring! We have enjoyed very much being out in the warm sunshine! Baby Bear has decided she wants to learn to ride her 2 wheel bike again. She learned how 2 summers ago, but after a rough tumble she was bike shy for a long time. We are excited for her to learn too. We would like tips and ideas from anyone who has ever taught a nervous child to balance and ride a bike! Comment away!

  1. Chocolate bunnies are not meant to be eaten sparingly. Tell BABYBEAR to enjoy it there is no more until next Easter. I hope the teeth situation is under control. Ignore her on the bike, leave it out where she can see it and make sure you two are out on your bikes now and then so she can see you "practice" and lots of cheers and praise for every attempt.
