Three Packages

by Josée

The next best thing to receiving a letter from a friend is receiving a package from a friend. This morning the post woman dropped off three packages! I made me forget the q-tips that Monkey dumped all over the floor and the hideous pile of laundry bursting out of the hallway closet. Three packages – two from friends! Monkey was equally thrilled.

Monkey hauled them upstairs and started to unwrap the first one. In it were some toys and cuddlies for him and his sister, gifts from my Hubby’s sister and her family – thanks guys!

The second was a package from I ordered some Jason Natural Kids Only! Orange Toothpaste, Nature Clean Furniture Polish,  Dr. Bronner’s Organic Baby Mild Liquid Soap and some lavender essential oil. The last two items are for making a cleaning solution for my cloth wipes. I really like ordering from because I pay less taxes and shipping is free – yay!

I looked at the third package and my heart went pitter-patter. I carefully removed the tape and opened the box. Beneath a layer of bubble wrap I could see the back of a canvas and a small green note. I pulled back the wrap and turned the canvas around. This is what I saw…


I wanted to hug my friend Cindy and hang the painting right away. But for now I’ll have to send my dear friend a [virtual hug] (Thank you!) and wait for Hubby to get home to put it up.

I'm so glad you like it 🙂 I had a lot of fun painting this one for your monkey and sweetpea. Praying for you and your family – would love to get together with you guys sooner than later. My brother, I just found out, is going to be working up in PG, so we might be coming up for a visit once our baby is born. Take care!

The painting is beautiful 🙂 will need a place of prominence.

What are you using for your baby wipes wash? We are doing reusable wipes (the easiest and smartest thing to re-use in baby-land, in my opinion), and I am so glad we have. Geesh!
