A little trip to the Library....

Sam and i tootled off to the library today after preschool.....Ooooh but first we stopped at Cookie Man but thats a whole other story...*grin*
Anyhoo i found this gorgeous book called Tattered Treasures, YEAH I KNOW RIGHT, how good is that title. I grabbed it without even flicking through the pages first.

Just look at this page will you!

Now me and chairs, we have a very strong bond happening...a deep kind of love that only other chair-a-holics (like you AMY) can grasp....LOL.
So this piccie i am LOVIN! It's so stinkin' cute! I think i need to buy some tiny chairs now.....

And this! I have lots of old bottles on top of my dresser...but this idea is so gorgeous i may have to do some rearranging!


There are sooo many gorgeous inspiring pages. I think i will go find a sunny spot in the garden and read a bit....

Sam borrowed some really sweet books too, and i chose one for him that im hoping will help his sadness with me leaving him at pre school. He goes Mon to Thurs from 9am to 11;30am, i would love to keep him home (as you all know) but its important that he learns to be in a school environment for next year when he starts Kindergarten.
So onward we trudge each day...to the gruelling and teary task of dropping Sam off at pre school.

This book is about a lil' Guinea Pig who misses his mummy so much...im hoping it will help Sam a bit...we can read it together and talk about how we can make it easier and more fun for him :)


This is how i picture him at Preschool...without me....ACK its an awful feeling.


SO i might just grab my little man now and take him out to the garden with me to the sunny spot and we will snuggle and read together and maybe eat some of those cookies i mentioned......


Hope you are having a sweet day too!

Love n Pink Kisses...

Hi Shann... You and Sam got some neat books! I know how hard it is for you, both, but school will work itself out and soon you will both be happy with the new changes and life will go on to be as enchanting as ever! I promise ~hug~

I loved the pic of the "chair wall" and I am going to copy it! LOL... I have a collection of small and tiny chairs already, so this is a terrific idea to steal... heheheeee! Thanks!

Ohhhh.... I am loving the PINK Polka~Dots you have going on, now! Looking awesome, Sweetie!

Enjoy your snuggle time with Sam... God bless...

~hugs 'n love~

Oh Shann....the whole separation anxiety thing is heart breaking. I went through it with my youngest in pre-school and just when I thought I couldn't take another morning with a child screaming and clawing at my clothes it happened.... she made a special friend and didn't look back.

Then they go off to school..... oh that is a whole different chapter and I don't want to scare you...LOL

Enjoy this special time with Sam.
Hugs,
Kerryanne

It is so hard when they go to school, I remember....then in a few years you get to the point where you are thinking...hmmmm, how long till school starts again....LOL. You are such a good mummy. Cookies always works for me!!! I can't believe you are getting ready for spring and we are heading into fall. We really are on opposite ends of the earth, aren't we???

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Great finds at the library Shannon. I hope Sam finds his place at school soon. My youngest was very attached to me and would scream and cry when I left her at preschool. I always left there crying myself but the funny thing is she is my most outgoing child. She can talk to anyone about anything. LOL
