Monster's New Castle

Wizard brought this home yesterday for the princess. She was so excited she actually slept with the unopened box next to her bed.
This morning I tried to set it up...well the box said "Sets up in minutes." Minutes, my ass! I had to spend quality time trying to figure out first, where the slots for the stilts were and then, how the heck do I set it up from the outside???
I think Discovery Kids saw the original European models of stilted tents but only saw the equipment, not how they are set up. FYI Discovery Kids, the stilts go INSIDE sewn, protected tubing that children cannot mess with, and the insert points for those tubing are OUTSIDE the tent where the parent can easily reach them.
Unless you honestly thought a 3 year old will be able to set it up from the inside.
If you are going to copy a design at least make a more than half assed attempt at cheating.

So it starts...again.

Look carefully, that my friends, is a poop stain.
I'm not quite sure if it's from today or from yesterday. What I do know is, I wore this skirt to the dentist...he may or may not have seen it.
The End.

Knitting Projects

Long ago I'd read somewhere, "if you learn knitting by knitting a scarf, that's all you'll ever knit!" So after I did learn knitting by knitting a scarf, I promised myself I'll try my hand at more complicated things. So here are the projects I've made so far:
These still need to be lanolized but are going on the squishy's bum soon! Just as soon as he grows enough to fill them in =)
