Another good day on the horizon. Two days in a row, now that is a pretty cool thing. Seven more days till Spring Break and that, my girls, is a marvelous thing. And Room Number 14,28,56 and 4872 ….we have good things in store for you too. Just email Sam, samm@matildajaneclothing.com with your info and photo.

My head is still spinning with the previous early morning ideas…they are almost down on paper. Almost.

I love all these darling pics I have been getting of brothers and sisters. Are they not the sweetest duo? Talk about sweet….. Gabe asked Joe if he would sleep in his room with him tonite. Joe actually agreed!! Amazing. Joe is tending to be a bit selfish lately. It is so hard to teach that. To be honest, and I am not bragging, or trying to sound cool, but I really am not much of a selfish person nor is David. I know kids don’t mean to be, but I am constantly saying “Joe, you are cleaning the kitchen counter to help me, not to get to play a video game. You do things to help each other not because you want something in return.” That is the hardest thing to teach a kid, and it is not so much that they are selfish, I just think they don’t know otherwise. Who knows..

Alrighty, now I must get back to work.

Oh Denise! I have missed you so! I have been so sick with my back and being in bed, that I rarely make it to the computer. I missed Hammond Bay completely and what a miss it was. YOU really outdid yourself on that one and must be soooo proud. We are scraping here, so it will be a while before I can investin MJC, but it will be worth the wait.
Thinking artistic thoughts for you!

My son has Asperger’s so we do a lot of work with earning time to do what he wants with doing his chores, getting work done etc. His therapist said it is ok not to expect them to want to do things for people unselfishly. In life we all do things for a pay off. Even doing something nice for someone gives us kuddos. It’s like that episode of friends where Phoebe was trying to do something totally selfless and everything kept having perks for her. Finally she let a bee sting her as her selfless deed and her friends said “You know now the bee is going to die”. Oops. As long as the reward is not a thing(monetary), it’s ok to have payoffs for helping out, kids are very concrete. They will eventually learn on their own. Frustrating though…I know.

That is so sweet! Tiffy won’t let Brittany sleep in her room AT ALL. But, every now and then they do sweet things for each other and it melts my heart!!

Enjoy your Spring Break 🙂

Now I think I MUST get a Might Acorns T for my daughter! Still waiting on a room # in the 2000 range to come… sigh

Hi Denise!
Just wondering if you are going to have more of those fabulous ruffle skirts from Hammond Bay (shown with the Dance Yourself Silly Tank)coming in, ever?!? I am embarrassed to admit that I keep checking every day just hoping one day the picture will be back up with a size 18months or 2t. I wanted it for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party, but I know they sold out too quick. 🙁 I cannot imagine a better party skirt…why do I get an outfit in my head and cannot seem to let it go?!?!

Gosh Denise. I have found the same things with parenting/teaching my kids. The “character” issues are the most difficult to teach and are tough for me too, kills me to see them be anything less than sweet to others, ya know? It seems to be hardest with my oldest for some reason. She can tend to be selfish and not always considerate of her younger brother and sister and it really bothers me and is hard to “teach” them how they should feel. :O)

Denise - March 26, 2010 - 12:29 pm

oh, just completely random, no rhyme or reason… but I can tell you they start at 1 and go up to 5000!!!

boys4girls2 - March 26, 2010 - 12:18 pm

Argh! Wondering how the number are picked? I haven’t seen hardly any in the 3000’s! Love the pictures…makes me always want to buy more!

Just HAD to let you know that Emily Grace entered her classroom this morning and announced, “Good Morning! I’m a Matilda Jane kinda gurl”! She is 4 and cannot get enough of your clothes!

Jamie - March 26, 2010 - 11:12 am

Ooooh close, made me do a double take. I am 4972, not 4872. Doeth, hahaha. 🙂

Monika - March 26, 2010 - 10:57 am

I know just what you mean, I hear “I’ll do …, if you do … ” a lot around here lately. I agree with you though, kids just don’t know any better yet.

Thanks for putting my girls up there. They’ll be thrilled! Erina thought she’s getting too big to be on your blog… she said “You know, mom, I’m just not as little & cute anymore!” Awwwwww!!!!

tree*head - March 26, 2010 - 10:15 am

Awww Denise- thanks for picking 2 digit numbers :)….I was pretty close! Brae and Ana will be thrilled to see their pics on the blog!
