Speaking of bugs, I found this super cute knick-knack shelf today at a secondhand shop, and I couldn't pass it up. And get this--it was only $3! I don't know if the girls are really old enough to appreciate a "theme" but they did seem to love this piece as much as I did (read: they kept trying to play with it as we walked around the store), so it eases the guilt a little about spending cash on non-essentials.
And sometimes I fear that although I'm decorating their room, I'm doing it mostly for me. Having items that I know they love too in the room also assuages that guilt. Yeah, I guess I'm just a bundle of guilt, but that's motherhood, I guess.
If I stop to think about it, I always worry if I'm doing things right... is this the right food to make my kids healthy? does the educational value of this TV show outweigh the fact that it's a sedentary occupation? do I listen enough to my kids? am I too tough on them? There are always questions. But looking up and seeing this little guy smiling down at me helps me to take a breath and realize that everything is going to be okay. And seeing my tiny girls laughing and smiling up at their new silly bug is priceless. So, yeah. Good purchase.
