click clack moo

 it seems like i'm always running about a week behind with updates to my blog
it's the best i can do right now
life is busy and hectic and it looks like it will be this way for...oh the next 15 years probably???
 last Saturday morning molly and i headed downtown to the Nashville children's theater to watch a performance of click clack moo!
 it was super cute and molly really enjoyed it:)
 of course, you know she had the perfect dress for the occasion!
 this weekend i had a yard sale...crazy!  
why do i continually torture myself with yard sales??
i shouldn't go to them and i shouldn't have them, but it's a sickness in my family
my grandmother had it, my mom and aunts have it, and i have it too! ha!!!!

but, this weekend was really sentimental because i was clearing out and selling all of molly's baby bedroom furniture and decor...i almost cried:(

last year i took out her crib and replaced it with a toddler bed which she loved!
ms. independent loved having the freedom to get in and out of bed as she pleased. 
going from the baby bed to toddler bed wasn't so sentimental because i could still keep all of her sweet baby bed sheets, bedding, and the same color scheme/decorations in the room as we did when it was her nursery.  you can click back to here to see pictures of her first room!!  i fell in love and bought the girly doll dresses decor in 2006 way back when i was only in the paperwork stages of this adoption!  so it has been with me for many years as i waited for my girl to use it.  while we waited madison used it while she was at mom's house and eddie slept in it too, even though it was pink and girly!

but, now converting to a full big girl room has been very bittersweet for me.  we moved a full size bed and new furniture into her room this weekend.  i'm still waiting on her quilt to arrive.  it's all going to be super cute and i'll post pictures when i have it all complete...which may be a month or two from now. 

another reason we are all switching bedrooms is because we are getting our house ready for my mom to move in with us!  my mom retired from daycare (she had a home daycare for 19 years) and is selling her house/land (my childhood home) in order to 'downsize' and move in with molly and i.  we are excited to have her live with us, but it reuires a bit of adjustments and moving around in order to fit 3 females into a small 3 bedroom house! ha!  so mom is selling things and clearing out and so am i. 

i also moved into a smaller bedroom in my house in order to gve mom the larger bedroom/bath.  she has sacrificed greatly for me in her lifetime (letting me live with her rent free until i was 35 years old for example) and so now i get the priviledge of paying her back a little bit.  i told her the next 35 years are on me...hopefully molly will see this happen and will let me move into her house when she is an adult!  the circle of life!!

so, this was a big and busy weekend.  we sold a lot of "stuff", moved and set up 2 new bedrooms, and cleaned out a lot of stuff.  now, we have a lot of painting to do...bedroom walls and furniture mainly.

and i have more yard sales in my future because molly's toddler bed, changing table, and baby bedding didn't sell:(  those are the main things i wanted to get out of my garage!  but, now they are listed on craigslist...if you are in the middle tennesee area and need baby girl stuff let me know!!

I have followed your blog for awhile, but don't believe I've ever commented. I really feel called to adopt one day also, and admire your story and love seeing Molly's wardrobe!! Hope having your mom move in is a smooth, wonderful transition!!
