My biological clock isn't ticking yet.
At least not loud enough to annoy me.
I think newborns look like aliens.
Yes, I tell the mother that the kid is adorable.
(Secretly, I think newborns have a face only a mother could love.)
When the kid hits 6 months, they're pretty cute.
As long as they're not in the middle of code brown or even worse, code puke green
And then they hit the toddler years...
and I'd prefer they keep their sticky, germy hands to themselves.
I apologize now to the two hopeful mothers I know that would like to become a grandmother.
And a super hopeful dad who has started to stock pile baby things in our basement...
Much to my surprise...
I actually have half an inkling to adopt.
But I know there are trials with adoption.
And I'm not sure my hubs is as willing to adopt as I am.
Maybe one day we'll feel compelled to have a little one add to the numbers.
But either way, I'm happy with just the hubs and me.
So this layout came together pretty quickly. Actually, I've had the layout done for awhile.
I just put the journaling off for awhile.
Steph recently asked me about mists.
That reminded me that I had this layout sitting around waiting to be completed.
I used my mists for the paint splatters and I misted my kraft clouds.
Love me some mists.
But I'm also very controlling about where things are allowed to be.
So mists are used in moderation and very very carefully in my house.
I'm also 1/2 scared I'm going to stain the carpet.
Which could be enough to make the "two of us" become just me.
And that would be very very bad.
They sell special mist boxes but that seems like a waste of money.
Money that could go towards my imaginary DSLR and lenses.
I mist inside a box that some scrap supplies came in.
I've also lined that box with some scrap packing paper.
Just in case...
Thanks for stopping by!
