Young at Heart

What brings out the kid in me? My niece definitely keeps me connected with my inner childhood. I love to see things they way she sees them and experience amazing wonders for the first time just as she is.

Finding ants on a stump and watching them scurry back and forth kept her entertained as a 2 year old. Now she will have nothing to do with them and will run away screaming when she sees one.

But let her dig in the dirt and she will be happy for the rest of the day. Especially if she finds a big fat worm to hold, and cuddle and find a new home for. Getting dirty was one of my favorite past times as a child as well. The smell and feel of dirt between my fingers brings back wonderful memories.

I love to go exploring with her and discover fish swimming in a stream or the perfect rock that makes a *shplunk* sound as it splashes in the water.

Or tasting those first snowflakes on the ground that tickle your face and melts on your tongue.

There is nothing better than running as fast as you can and feeling like you can fly and then actually flying in the air with the help of balancing on someones feet. I can fly! Listening to my niece's imagination brings me back to the times I used to pretend as well.

I hope she keeps me young at heart for years to come. And that I can provide wonderful memories for her to look back on when she is my age.

Dandelion Wishes.

Dolls I Wouldn't Mind My Niece Playing With

Have you seen the Only Hearts Club dolls?  I love these dolls.  They are dolls that look like girls and not like adults (Barbie).  These dolls have different personalities and looks and are very cute.  
I would have no hesitation to give these to my 3 year old niece to play with.  I'm in luck because Kids Health Notes is giving away these dolls.  There will be 15 winners!  I'm hoping to be one of the winners.  The contest ends May 10.

Heavenly Hold Baby Carrier

I have posted before on my love of babywearing. I find it very helpful at church, on walks, and getting things done. Both of my nieces love being carried in the slings as well. I would love to have either another mei tai or a light weight ring sling for in the summer. The ring sling I have now is padded and gets a bit hot in the summer. Luckily I've found a great contest to win a baby carrier of my choice up to $100. Heavenly Hold and Babywearing Buzz is giving away your choice of carrier. You have until May 31 to enter.

I found it hard to pick my top 3 choices but here they are:
