lucy grace’s perspective


“Mom, what is that on my blanket?” “Honey it looks like a piece of dust. Just throw it in the trash.” “That’s okay Mom, I’ll put it behind my door, there are a bunch more back there and I think they’re related.” “I’m going to clean that soon.” I added as she threw the dust behind the door with what she called “the rest of them.” Ugh

I went with Lucy’s Pre-K summer school class to the local Farmer’s Market yesterday. I was in charge of Lucy and two others who are also age 5. Apparently boyfriend/girlfriend scenarios are already being floated around in the classroom. When I asked a boy why he was sad he said it was because he didn’t have a girlfriend. It seems one of the other girls had been girlfriend to the boy and his twin brother then moved on. He had not. Lucy piped up and volunteered to be both of the twins’ girlfriend like she was on a Goodwill mission or something. She acted like she would be going out of her way, but she would do it out of the goodness of her heart. The way she said it and the way the boy reacted was priceless. Just little smiles. It was so funny.

Today we were in the county clerk’s office to renew my license plates and Lucy was very nice and polite, very well-mannered the entire time, but on the way out she stopped me and looked around inside the older, tiled building and said it looked a lot like a big bathroom. She, of course, said it very loudly and some other people turned around and laughed. Very amusing. It kind of does resemble a big bathroom. Kids that age are so honest and observant. That God for the insightful conversations between a mom and 5 year olds.

I have the title Operational Manager which means the administrative end of the business (yuk) and now some new and fun work on the firm's website. We live in Lexington, KY or as many know it – horse country. Everything around here is horse-themed and it is a very beautiful area to live in and raise a family. I have many interests that span art, sciences, education, books, computer science and security and one of my greatest passions is design. One of my favorite blogs is Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge. I like living the simple life, spending time with my family and reading and writing about my interests in my blog. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to share with you the many things I enjoy so that you may enjoy them too. I love sharing cool information with people who appreciate it. I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
