It's a stick up!

When my 'kids' are causing me stress by waking the whole household at 3am when they come home from a night out, or being out in the car when the roads are icy and the weathermen have said 'only go out if absolutely necessary', or are driving the 150 mile trip back to Sheffield Uni on their own and forget to text me to say they have arrived safely, or dying their hair almost black and then crying because they wish they had stayed bleached blonde (you can guess which comment relates to my son and which to my daughter - although some are interchangeable!) - it is easy to forget just how cute they were when they were little! So I used the 'Stickers' prompt to use a photo from primary school. Guessing they are aged about 9 and 6 here.


So let me check the criteria for this. Letters. Check. Numbers. Check. Sparkly jewels. Check. Gold stars. Check. Rub on. Check. Sticky title. Check. Adhesive jounalling. Check. Think I've ticked all the boxes, now onto the next one!

Great title! I know what you mean too..one minute you're trying to feed his legs into the seat in the trolley and the next minute he's pushing the trolley with one hand and carrying a sack of potatoes with the other!

Nice job. I too think stickers go naturally with kids' layouts.
And the difficulties of parenting are definitely constantly in flux!
