How Do You Hold a Moonbeam in Your Hand?

I think a lot about this line from the Sound of Music, especially as my "Maria" gets closer to school age — a topic for many future blog posts, I'm sure. Right now, I'm working on figuring out ways to help my son relax, to learn how to be calm.

Somewhere in this blog I mentioned that the fabric Minkee helps my little whirling dervish settle down. He's taken to carrying around an unfinished length of it like a blankie. Kristin from Sew, Mama, Sew! remembered this and included some Minkee scraps along with an order that I placed. I thought I would use them to finish the blankie, but I made up these pants and poncho instead.

As you can see, the Minkee trick doesn't always work. When it doesn't, we can always play the "Will You Buy Me?" game — possibly his favorite game of all time. In the bottom photo you can see my latest purchase, a Chiweenie, trying his best to be a good dog. He cost "none." A pretty good deal, I think.

Man I love that song. Those nun's voices always sounded like bells to me. And I know how you feel - my baby heads off to kindergarten in the fall, precious little time left for afternoon cuddles and silly games. *sigh*

LOVE your pictures. They really capture the moment......freedom.....expression.....pure happiness.

Sorry I missed your post about the purple boots. My stepmom bought them for my 4yo at a little boutique. I think the brand is 'Phat' boots. I love 'em!

It looks like he could be made a part of a successful off-the-grid house. Just put that whirling dervish in a power generating treadmill, and you'll have electricity for years. ;)

His face in that last picture is super hilarious. You got a great deal ... a cutie for 'none.' Lucky you!

I think he may have a leeeettle bit of terrier in him too. Just a leeeettle tiny bit.

I was looking for an actual dog. How I love the exuberant child. The teenager was one and now it looks like little C will follow in his footsteps.

He looks like he's got the same level of energy that my kid has. Sometimes it's crazy-making, and sometimes totally fun. He's quite a cute guy.
