• Green

    Just a little glimpse into some of my summer vacation! Missing you all… but loving the rest. I hope you are all having fun and colorful summers! (Or winters… whichever hemisphere you may live in. 😉 )


    We went on a hike into the color green, as the clock struck 4:15.

    Our backpacks filled with water and treats. And hiking shoes on most of our feets.

    Waterfalls here and there…. lush green forest everywhere.

    Ferns that carpet the forest floor and mossy logs to go explore.

    Green above, green below, green reflects on water that flows.

  • The Fun Side of Learning


    Hello to my Colors Are Magic friends! I’m so excited to be guest posting for Nickey today!
    I’m Stephanie from The Nanny Journals.


    That monkey on my back is my bff, M. He’s two-and-a-half and we spend a lot of time together.
    We basically tell each other everything.
    Now, if you couldn’t tell from my blog, I’m M’s nanny.
    I’ve been with the little guy since the day he was born and it’s been the best 2.5 years of my career.

  • Monster-Doh

    Monsters come in all shapes and sizes. Some are tall with wings, or are neon yellow with feathers and fangs. Some are tiny enough to fit comfortably in a thimble or as large as whale! There is a type of monster however, who has been overlooked.. and they need a just little TLC. Doh Monsters.

    Much like a hermit crab who will out grow it’s shell and search for a new home, Doh Monsters are born like little lumps of clay and must find a protective jar to dwell in. Because they are indeed monsters… and I want to feel like it, they tend to look for jars that are decorated like monsters on the outside. They also enjoy some good playtime amongst human children and will come out of their jars to play. You see, Doh-Monsters are wonderful at shapeshifting and love to see children using their imaginations. But, if you are going to ever play with a Doh Monster just remember, they will need to go back into the jar home when you are done playing. If they stay out for too long they could turn to stone. No one wants that. It’s just sad.
