Well I hope that you all had your fill of good cheer, and that the blessings just keep on coming for you in this new year. How did it get to be 2009?
Either Way, He’s the Boss
I want you all to know that I am so touched that each of you drop by this space to chat and exchange ideas and just BE together. It means so much to me to share this journey with so many wonderful people, and to get glimpses of your days too.
I've been thinking hard during the last few months on a way to expand that sharing – to send a little piece of Blue Yonder out into the world, and at last I hit upon what I think will be a great way for us to connect, and hopefully for your own families to draw closer as well.
I will be sharing lots more information about that project in a day or two, so don't go too far, okay?
In the meantime, I give you the king… or the chief… or one, and then the other, and then maybe both at one time.
I know… I might be the last mama out there to give her poor boy his rightful crown, but he finally found it under our tree this year.
Two short days before Christmas though, he was running around the house hollaring his Comanche war cries, with chicken feathers stuck in his hair, when it occurred to me that he was going to need a headdress too.
I opted for the exceedingly more sanitary FELT feathers.
I think I would make them a bit narrower next time, and maybe not so tall, but I guess they turned out pretty well, for a last minute cram session gift.
He likes it anyway, and that's what matters. Only he's been asking if I can please put "some bull horns on it, to make it look real tough." Hmmm. Gonna have to think on that one.
He likes to put on his crown and bark orders, and then don his headdress and tell everyone that he's "still the boss of you because the Chief is the king of his people too!"
That's is the part where his brothers roll their eyes.
I might have to come up with some manner of emperor robe next.
What do czars wear?
Being that he's the smallest, but bears the biggest attitude, my husband says that what he really needs is a Napolean hat.
I hope your day is royally wonderful, whichever hat you may wear 🙂
