Little known fact …
These are the famous Toilet Roll Galapagos Birds (image above).
Darwin originally linked the evolution of birds with common toilet rolls.
My wife presented and unearthed this startling, new discovery today!
Remember, DON’T throw away your old toilet paper rolls.
Give them the love, care and creativity to evolve into a beautiful bird.
Jade’s mom made these great reindeer antlers for Jade.
I can’t believe she made it in crochet!
Jade was really excited to wear it to her StrongStart Christmas Party.
Originally, we had 12 monsters but ‘Big Blue Bear’ ate the smallest one.
My wife drew these fun monsters and Jade named them.
Looks like someone is missing their underwear …
This quirky pic was drawn by my wife when Jade was being potty trained and our talked veered towards “undergarments”.
I once lived in Saskatchewan and the popular slang for underwear was gotch (and also gitch). When I later moved to Alberta and British Columbia, I found out the locals referred to their underwear as gonch (and also ginch). Yes, it is goofy … but it made for some funny dialogue about regional differences.
Any weird or interesting slang from your corner of the globe?
Love, Love Love ~
Steppy is a little hamster and she’s my daughter’s new favourite toy.
I’m always hearing “Draw Steppy.” Jade likes to add new features (mittens, shoes, etc).
Cuteness Overload ~
Wherever Jade goes, her friend Steppy is always there. They’re great buddies.
You Can’t Hide It ~
I played Ricky Lee Jones’ song “Chuck E’s In Love” and we switched the lyrics to “Steppy’s In Love.” Jade thought it was hilarious.
In the drawing (above), Joey the hamster is chasing Steppy.
(Joey likes when Steppy plays hard to get).
That’s The Way She Rolls ~
Steppy is always creative, street savvy and super sassy.
My wife and Jade created the look for “Toilet Roll Steppy.”
Still Rolling ~
Jade painted the pink base layers (above) and my wife fine-tuned the details.
The Glamour ~
Steppy is very comfortable in glitter. At our home, Steppy is truly a star.
No Small Step ~
Steppy is always sporty and active. Recently she learned to ride a bike.
A Happy Steppy ~
We also created a “Big Block Singsong Steppy” and we substituted the lyrics “Happy” to “Steppy.” It’s now Steppy’s unofficial theme song.
