We have the grumpiest mailman you will ever meet.
He makes me laugh with his grumpy comments but is really a very nice man.
For example; instead of making me come to the post office to pick up a package if he misses us or leaving a box in the snow and rain he finds places around our house to "hide" it.
We have found treasures under a canoe, in Bristol's sandbox table, and in our car.
He always leaves leaves a note telling me where he "hid" the package going way out of his way.
His only downfall is he comes EVERYDAY at nap time and rings the doorbell.
Usually I can catch him before he does but the doorbell leads to our dog barking which can lead to B waking up.
Ahhh the life of an online shopper. :)
I decided with a new baby coming I needed to make a sign to alert Mr. Jim to please not ring the doorbell.
I found this wooden plaque at Michael's for $1.99 and had Matt drill two little holes on either side.
I painted it red to match the outside of our house...
in the process emptied almost an entire bottle of paint on the plaque.
Ops. So it got a few extra coats...
After the red dried I painted the main part with chalkboard paint. This way I can write whatever I want.
Go Away - kidding.
Whatever we want. :)
Add a little twine and its ready to go whenever little ones are sleeping. :)
On another note we are still on the mend here... when B feels sick she likes to wear her Ariel Pjs and fairy wings...
Watch WAY too much Curious George with her buddy Gage...
and play pathetic in order to get treats out of Mommy. :)
Hope you all are staying healthy and warm!
