Crumbs!

So Little E called the other morning, just as everything was getting away from me. Again. I told him about my week.


"Uncle Dave says I'm having an existential crisis and I probably need to read some Sartre," I said.

"Oh," Little E replied. "I think you need to get out your hoover and clean up your crumbs."

With thanks to Alison for the brad which she very kindly sent as part of a care package earlier in the year

Maybe they're both right. But I think I'll start with the crumbs. Then I can get the biscuits out again.."

Wise little man!!! Great story to record with a page very nicely designed!!!

Cheri said...

Almost makes me wish I had a three year old to converse with. Hopefully my problems would be solved that simply too! Great page Sian!

Jennifer said...

Oh to see things through the eyes of a child and yes, they are always right. As adults we do seem to complicate things. He is such a little sweetie and it is great that you are documenting these fun memories of his youth. Love this LO too! Lots of goodness to look at! :)

That boy should go into politics. Hoovering up crumbs would solve the nation's problems! Great story.

Alison said...

I really DO miss having small children in my life..they have such a way of putting things in perspective! Love the LO

I must admit that - from time to time - I find a certain Zen in housework. But those moments are few and far between!

I shall await 'The Little Book of Little E' with baited breath. x

Lynn said...

Awww the little ones say the funniest things!

Alana said...

Such a wise man for his age:) Now hoovering up your problems....I could do with that. When are you going to market it Sian?

Becky said...

Great layout and great sentiment from Little E!

Mary B said...

Fantastic page and I think Little E has it just right we do drop crumbs of our life all over the place

alexa said...

Love his practical wisdom! And biscuits win over Sartre any day. Unless you munch and read at the same time, and unless it gives you nausea. :) Such a super page - I'm zooming in and out like anything to enjoy all the bits.

S said...

Cute page for a sweet story. But Sarte or housework, I don't know what to say about that!!

Sandra said...

Aaww bless, sounds to me you've got a wise man in the making there :). Such a fabulous layout Sian.

How lucky I am to be back and blog reading and you pop up in my reader .... Life is good

Karen said...

What a terrific comment! We all need a Little E around for advice! And, of course, another lovely layout!

Twinkle Star said...

I love your layouts! Little E is a wise boy indeed x

Barbara Eads said...

Hi Sian,
I love your layout. I love how your collage style looks effortless and flows. I'm not so good at that.

Amy said...

The Young Ones just get straight to the point, no mucking around and tell us how it is! Good luck for this week!

Ginger said...

Hope the crumbs are gone for this week Sian :) The plundered page is a nice addition to the layout.

Ginger said...

ok - I just came back to look at something and noticed that tag. Is that still from your slice?? Or did you purchase something else? (reference to the "you") :)

Maria Ontiveros said...

Oh my - such wisdom! I definitely need to clean out my crumbs. I'm feeling so scattered these days (creatively and otherwise). Love the little boy with the flag!

He has a wise mind for one so young. Loving all the little bits on your layout, as always.

Julie Kirk said...

Thank you for the link Sian - I hadn't even noticed that page until you said! Which I've decided to take as a good thing ... proving that you can really use the papers without them screaming out at you.

I'll pin it to Pinterest so I can share it. Thank you again.

Do love three year olds, had one (now 4) who when just three would visit and say slyly, 'Hoooover?'in a hopeful tone. There are lots of fun things when you are three.
