Em's First Decree

Emily's first decree after becoming a teenager, was that we needed to paint her room.

Not a job I particularly looked forward to without Oliver being here to help - but all my other little helpers were so excited, that we decided to get it done anyway.

Oliver hasn't seen it yet and perhaps on seeing this blog, and seeing the kiddies help, he may at this moment be having a heart attack.

But fear not - memories were made, we had a blast, and we have a very happy teenager in the house. AND WE DID A REALLY GOOD JOB.

Having had her room painted - Emily has decided to turn her room into a bit of a project. She is going to paint her skirting boards, sand down her bed side table and paint it, and take some pictures of her own to put on her walls. I'm very excited to see her take control like this. She even wants to spend some of the money she has earned babysitting, on new bedding.

Looking forward to posting the end result!

I LOVE IT! Well Done Emily! It's it wonderful to have your own space feel like you?? I'm so excited to see the end result!

Sorry for contacting you through your comments section but I couldn't find an email address on your blog. I'm contacting you because I'm trying to get the word out about my new site: www.MommyGiggles.com.

Mommy Giggles is a site where moms submit funny pictures to share with other moms to get a giggle out of. They can either be pictures of their kids or of other hilarious “mommy moments”

I am contacting you to see if you have a funny picture that I could post – we would of course give you the credit, and also post your blog (if you want). There is also a $25 Amazon Gift card drawing to everyone who submits a photo each month.

I would also appreciate if you could spread the word about Mommy Giggles to other moms too!

Hope you will get a “giggle” out of the site.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Matthews
