I am kind of overwhelmed at the response to my How to Cut a Watermelon post.  Actually, overwhelmed doesn’t quite encompass the whole thing.  I was totally shocked to see it as the featured food post on the WordPress homepage all day Friday and Saturday (update: and Sunday!).  It is still a little bit surreal to me.  So so cool, but so very unexpected.  I took a picture.  But it seems weird to post it here… frankly, it’s weird to talk about it.  But do I want to say hello to my new readers.  (Hello!)

I had big plans to finish a cutie commissioned apron that has been languishing on my dining room table, but I got swept up in all the excitement and I’ll get to it tomorrow during naptime.  So instead of doing what I was supposed to be doing, Creamie and I blew off the afternoon and instead of finishing our projects (hers are just stacking up around the house, let me tell you) we spent our time blowing bubbles.

[ click this picture to see it bigger, and you should.  she’s adorable. ]

It took her a little while to get the hang of it.  And after a few bubbles in the mouth episodes she got it down.  And at least once every hour she says “Bubbeee!  Mama, Bubbeee!!!”  Adorable? Yes.She actually got pretty good at it.  And I know exactly how we are going to spend this afternoon. And tomorrow, and the next day…

“Bubbeee!  Mama, Bubbeee!!!”

    You inspired us, my 17 year old sun and me, to make bubbles! We used a straw and made a lot of them!

    Loved the watermelon post, and now the bubbles. OMG, this is a great blog to find. I was just out on my porch blowing bubbles in the rain and intermittently telling a fairytale to my husband. He turned me onto your blog via the twirly skirt. Bubbles are amazing. My most unique use for them is in college. I was a French Horn major and would play until my lip was really really sore. I would blow bubbles to relax my lips and get them ready for bed and rest. It always did the trick. My lips weren’t back in shape until I could blow a nice long stream of them.

    Good luck with your blog and naptime and mommyhood. All of these things are quite wonderful, aren’t they?

    Great pictures. My grandmother used to make home made bubble mix for us when we were little. We would sit on the back porch and use giant bubble wands for hours.

    Oooo, you have to teach her how to hold the wand out and ‘blow’ bubbles by twirling in her reversible twirly skirt so she can be surrounded by a hulahoop of bubbles, fall down dizzy and watch them all float up into the sky! (my preferred method of bubble blowing).

    I was in Target over the weekend and they had giant bottles of bubbles for sale. I had to stop myself from buying it and running home and filling up my bubble blowing light up gun ( that I got this year in Disney World. Now that I see this I really wish I had bought them…

    Hi, my name is Kim, I’m 26 years old and I want to go play with my bubble gun! 🙂
