Fired Up!

Bee and I had a great time at Fired Up tonight!

Being a 5-year-old girl, Bee chose to paint a unicorn trinket box. She painted the base “speckled blue,”

and the lid a variety of little-girl colors, like “plum crazy pink,” “purple passion,” and “sunkissed yellow.” As she does with everything, Bee tackled this project with great care and determination to do her best.

The finished box was very pretty and colorful, and I didn’t help her with it at all! We’ll be able to pick it up in a week, after it’s glazed and fired.

Afterwards, we went to Panera bread for soup and salad,

and of course a delectable fudge brownie for dessert!

Before we came home, we stopped at Dollar Tree to pick up some Disney Princess stickers, because Bee has been invited to participate in a sticker club. We got caught in a very nasty thunderstorm on the way home, but thankfully, we made it home safely. It was a lovely girls’ night out!

Bee’s sticker club invitation gave me an interesting idea. I know that many of you who read this blog regularly have children who are Bee’s age, and I was thinking what fun it would be for the kids to exchange a pack of stickers and a little note or card. Bee loves to get mail, and I think it would be very interesting and exciting for her to get mail from children in other states or countries.

If anyone is interested in doing this, let’s exchange mailing addresses. Send me an e-mail!

  1. I’m in. Well, my kids are.

    I want them to know that blogging isn’t just an addiction, it’s about relationships with real people.

    Bee is just too cute.

    I’ll email you my info.

  2. I want to go out with you and Bee!! I haven’t painted ceramics in years! Found ya via THAT family!

  3. OH! I OVE going to those places! The last time I took the kids, they each painted their own plates that we use for dinner each night.
    So much fun!!!
    Looks like a wonderful day!!!

  4. What a wonderful time! I love my mother-daughter time with my baby (16mo) – it’s amazing how well-behaved she is in a restaurant when it’s just us and she has all my attention!

  5. Oooooo, yes please! Whenever Saraya walks in and sees your blog up, she exclaims “Oh, this is my favourite blog! This is the one with Bee-Bee and Babycakes, isn’t it Mamma?”

    I’ll email you too. And “FiredUp” looks great. We used to have the “Plaster Funhouse” when I was little, but I haven’t seen one in years.

  6. Chandler loves to get mail too!

    She got a sticker club invite several months ago. We did it, but she has yet to see any stickers. I guess someone (or several people) dropped the ball. 🙁

  7. Looks like you girls had a great time! Bee’s box looks great so far. Can’t wait to see it once its fired.

  8. Welcome to THAT family 🙂 I have a four year old neice named Beatrice and we all call her Bea.

    I was just thinking of going to a ceramics place and making a plate. And now I read this!! Our place here is called “All Kilns of Fun.”

  9. I'm sure Zai & Ellie would love to be in – is it international? Looks like you had a great day out!
    You mentioned Phelp's race in your comment on my blog – I was listening to it on the radio as I drove home from church – so that tells you what the time difference is – Sat evening for you guys & Sun afternoon for us ( still trying to get my head around it!!) We were excited about Stephanie Rice's win, but in truth I hadn't heard about her before (I don't read any tabloids however- only the local paper & the farmers paper – boring I know!!).

  10. I think looking at Bee’s new little trinket box has lowered my self esteem by about ten points. I could never have painted that thing as nicely as she did, all color coordinated and in the right places and whatnot, haha! Outpainted by a five year old, story of my life 🙂

  11. Looks like y’all had lots of fun. The box looks so beautiful. She did a wonderful job. Your girls are gorgeous!

  12. Jessica, that’s precisely why I didn’t paint anything. It would be too embarrassing to be shown up by a 5-year-old.

  13. […] Hayley started kindergarten, I took her to paint a piece of pottery. I really never meant for it to become a “thing,” but I’ve learned that small […]
