Rainee-bear Shows!

I wanted to do a unique page to capture something Rainee is leaving behind... a reminder to her, little things in her life matter! Little moments of change pass by us every day... and this one, is just one I had to capture...

These last few months, I've seen how much she's changing... not just her age, or height or weight... but in her interests... I'm so blessed to have this time to watch her grow... and change. I don't know about you, but time seems to be passing in a blink... and I don't want to miss a moment of it!

I knew the time would come when Rainee would leave her cartoon shows behind and be saying hello to different interest... I can't believe it... but it's here! I've been anticipating it for awhile... so it's a bittersweet thing... sad to see these 'friends' go...yet, excited for her and what lies ahead. This layout is to honor the 'friends' Rainee made... the things she's learned and the laughter they've brought into our home. 'Rainee-bear Shows' just had to be assembled together with their own milestone moment on paper.

Even these last several day while downloading pictures of her 'friends'... I've seen her remembering...these long lost friends... there's been excitement in her eyes for some of her constant friends... which she'd watch over and over and over again.... and others... which she forgotten completely... Doing this layout has been a joy not only to do, but also to watch Rainee as she enjoys the putting together of it... and this page would not be complete if my little artist couldn't put her 2¢'s in about where some friends should go on the page. It was fun watching her process it all...

As for the title... "Rainee-bear Shows"... I don't know when it started or how... but somewhere along the way, when Rainee wanted to watch a show... they were called... "Rainee Bear Shows"... and it just stuck. (I think it's adorable!)

Doing this layout has now inspired me to do another... one of her first movie videos... you know the ones... Lady & The Tramp, Lion King, Mary Poppins and Peter Pan... those movies that filled my heart as a child and then Rainee's... I can't wait to start it!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and remembering along with me one of the everyday moments that is coming to a close in our house. I hope your everyday moments fill you up, because they pass too quickly!!! Have a lovely day!

Love this lo idea! Before you know it she will be a teenager and you'll think "who is that girl in my daughter's bedroom?". Blink of an eye is so right! I've also been thinking of a way to document all of the favorites...shows, toys, movies and such. Such a great idea once again! :D Cheri

Excellent layout. Very good topic. I might have to scrap some of my son's past favorites. Can you imagine in 20 years when they look back at them? What a bittersweet subject. Thanks for sharing.
