My name is Sarah. I was married August 21, 2009, and on August 18, 2010, my husband and I had an early anniversary present-named Charis. She is a beautiful baby girl and keeps her mummy busy. I enjoy reading, knitting, cooking, baking, walking, breastfeeding, enjoying creation, talking, singing, nursing, writing letters, cloth diapering, plus many more things.
A confession. Before becoming a mother, I told myself, "I will NEVER let any of my children color in coloring books. They will color on plain paper." I wanted them to use their imagination. But, I was at Jo-Ann Fabrics, and noticed they had Hello Kitty and My Little Pony coloring books. I was oohing and ahhing at them. Yes, I'm supposed to be the adult. Charis was too busy sucking her thumb to notice. I went ahead and bought them for myself. That didn't last long. This morning I was coloring and a little thief comes along and decided to color in the coloring book herself.
The thief coloring.
The end result.
The thief sucking her thumb.
FYI: I did not mind her taking the book, and I love my little thumb sucker.
Have you done anything as a parent you thought you'd never do?
