prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie


on the same day we made chalk, i made a mold for eliza’s hand.  kind of a trial run for preschool…pressing the child’s hand in playdoh, carving the name (or letter in our case) then pouring in the plaster of paris.

i learned that i need to press the hand a little deeper in…especially where the fingers meet the palm…otherwise you might end up with this:


when i first took it out of the playdoh mold, it didn’t even have a crack.  and after the persistent parenting i gave eliza, maybe i deserved it.  but by today, there is a crack that gives me hope eliza may not flip me off much longer.

i want to perfect this art.  what a treasure to see the nooks and crannies, creases and crevices of a little hand.

    Oh my. What a site to see when clicking on your blog. I totally spit my hot chocolate out my nose. It didn’t feel too good!

    Hi-larious. :D

    That Eliza, she sure knows how to make a statement! So funny. Btw – Ava got her mail today and was thrilled. She never gets mail and it made her feel very important.

    That is a great trial!!! Hopefully, this will be the one and only time her hand is like that towards you.
