I'm linking up with Shae at Yay for Home! for the very last time. From next week, Things I Know will have a new host.
This week I know that at 37 I still have a vibrant, active imagination.
I also know that in the dark, this teddy bear looks exactly like a large cat (or possibly a small, but very fierce mountain lion) staring at me hungrily with glittering eyes.
I know that a clean kitchen and a fridge full of food makes the world a very different place.
Wawa is convinced that that pine cone outside the bedroom window is a turtle. I'm loathe to correct her.
I know that even if you're on all fours when you fall, you can still give yourself a pretty nasty bump.
Dirt, water, music and loving touch are elemental things that soothe.
I know that every night before she goes to sleep, Ni likes to pull back the curtain above her bed so that she can look up at the stars.
I know that that is a really lovely thing...except at dawn when the gap she leaves when she closes the curtain lets in the sun that shines like a laser in my eyes to wake me up.
I know that it's probably worth it when Wawa joins her at the window and two sisters stare out into the endless universe and sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star together.
While my little girl is still not feeling right, she seems to have had a slightly better day today.
She spent some time in the bath this evening and I know I'm learning to make the most of my limited opportunities for screen time.
On the other hand, I don't know how Christmas managed to sneak up on me yet again. Every year it seems to get worse.
I know that, as she hosts Things I Know for the very last time, I am grateful to Shae for inventing this clever meme. It makes for a perfect end of the week brain dump.
