You can take 'em with you!

Most of you know that my "real" job is as an Emergency Department nurse. It's winter, it's really busy, people can be nasty, but hey, it's a job. Anyway - one aspect of my job is that I am gone for 12 hours at a time, and I really do start to miss the kiddos while I am gone! The child care center at the hospital makes these little cards for people to wear on their badges that says "my kid is in daycare at the hospital" with a cute picture of the kiddo - well, I kept seeing those, and although I am very lucky that my mother watches my kids at home, I really like the idea of keeping them close while I am gone! Here's my A Musing-ing version!

I wanted some kind of a front page ... so a "W" for our last name, and the Elzybells "fairy tales do come true" stamp.
The three kiddos - L to R - Parker, Henry & Lily.
Henry, age 10.Parker, age 3.
Lily, age 1.
I found the clear badge holders at the Dollar Store (10 for a dollar!). All stamps, paper, ribbon and twinkle stickers by A Muse and Elzybells, colored with Copics and Spica Glitter pens. Most of the photos are from our holiday shoot at Portrait Innovations - notice that there isn't an individual shot of Parker? That's because the little poop wouldn't sit still long enough to get a decent picture!! Oh well - what's a mom to do? I apologize for the not-so-great pictures of this project - shiny plastic is not easy to photograph, and it won't stay open on it's own, so we get glare and fingers!! :) I was showing this to my mom, and she says "why didn't you just take pictures of the pages out of the holders?" Thanks, Mom. Leave it to your mother to point out your shortcomings!!

FANTASTIC! I love that idea. I always feel bad when people ask to see a photo of my baby B and I don't have one. Thank you for sharing!
