A Typewriter for Creamie
Creamie is going to turn two in less than two weeks. She is getting so grown up. Last night she insisted on taking a shower by herself. She stood in there for 25 minutes, singing to herself and playing. She used her little washcloth to make a bed for the baby Jesus (she still plays with her Christmas nativity everyday). She’d poke her head out every few minutes and say “Almost done. One more minute.” She is so funny it kills me.
I’ll let you in on a secret if you promise not to tell. This cute toy typewriter is one of her birthday presents. I bought it from this shop and it got here last week. She always wants to play with my typewriters and I think she is going to LOVE having her very own. This one isn’t my first choice in children’s typewriters, but it will do for now. But I am still on the lookout for a red Sears Holiday typewriter or a turquoise/blue Petite International in good working order. Or in good enough working order that Stan can get them into good working order.
For now my pink Beauty is taking care of little Tomy, keeping him out of trouble until he moves into Creamie’s room. Right now they are hanging out in my craft room, because it is the only room in our house that Creamie doesn’t go into. (Yes, she is well trained… and I maybe lock the door.) I have three more typewriters, but they are all in different corners under various piles of stuff. I’m hoping to get a new bookcase in a few weeks to help me organize all the piles in my room. The stuff is threatening to take over. If I don’t do something about it soon I won’t be able to open the door.
But of all the stuff in there, I think this Beauty is my favorite. I never get tired of looking at her, and I’m so glad she’s mine. Happy Wednesday.
