image

As Part of project 365 last year I ended each mon with a self-portrait. It was great to be able to look back and see the changes over the course of the years. With the change from Project 365 to Picture of the Day I am not sure if I want to continue the practice. So I thought I’d as my readers. Should I continue with the self-portrait? Let me know in the comments.

POD: Building a suprise

2011-01-30_21-09-01_59_Toronto

This evening before Jacob headed to bed, he asked me to close my eyes he had a surprise for me. As I sat with my eyes closed I wondered what my surprise would be, it seemed to take a long time. I could hear him run upstairs and come back down, each time asking if my eyes were still closed. To be fair my eyes weren’t closed, I was on the computer while he assembled his surprise behind me on the carpet. When I finally looked back he’d built what you see in the picture. And once again I’m reminded how much I love  blocks, and how even though it’s been months since I’ve seen him play with them, they are great to have around.

Today while cooking dinner, Violet entertained her self with some of the toys we have on our fridge. It’s amazing how into the toys she gets, but the best part is she’ll play with that while I get dinner ready.

POD: VLogging Mama

2011-01-24_22-16-01_265

Today Melissa Recorded her first VLog, I was here for technical support. I setup the high-tech camera mount for her iPhone, and let her know when her time was up. I’m not sure when it will be posted but stay tuned to her blog shrinkingmama.com to watch it when it is. Watching her record made me wonder if I should do some video content for Geek with Kids, but thankfully that quickly past. I wont say I’ll never do a VLog but it wont be anytime soon.

POD: Tucked In

TuckedIn

Near our house they are building a skate park, one thing about the process I’ve been surprised by is that they have worked on and off all winter. The other day I was amused by how the equipment they have on the site was parked. It’s like the bigger machine is protecting the little one. I know it’s silly but I thought hey why not make it my picture of the day.

POD: Looking for a Chair with Violet

ChairTesting

Today the family headed to Ikea for lunch and look for something’s for our house. So while Jacob played in their play land, Violet, Melissa and I wondered the showroom floor. We were looking for a new bookcase for our living room, of course there are always so many things that caught our eye. From a new dinning room table, to new chair for the our new computer desk. You can see me and Violet testing out a pair of chairs in today’s picture. We held off any big purchases today, but a few thing made it to our wish list.
