I just want you

This morning as we were sitting outside of daycare, getting ready to go in, I reached back and unbuckled Boog's car seat.  He was looking out the window, not paying attention.  I put my finger up right by his nose to mess with him when he turned his head quickly.  My fingernail got him just on the inside of his little nose and he looked like he wanted to cry, but didn't.

I told him I was sorry and that I was just trying to tease him and he said he knew and it was okay.  So I said I'm not very good at this mommy thing, maybe we should find you a new one.  And then he spoke the best words ever:

"Nah, I don't want a different one.  I just want to stay with you."

Me too buddy, me too...

I am NOT crafty...

So why am I about to start this project?  I have no idea what I'm doing.  I don't plan, I just get an idea, get the stuff and cross my fingers...But this project is going to take planning...Like written, measuring, wood, cutting, nailing, sewing PLANNING! 
I was hoping to just find a bookshelf and go from there with half the work already done...So I'm taking the idea above and altering it slightly.  I'm going to have casters instead of legs - locking ones I hope.  I also don't plan to use the bins that this one has since it's going to be for Boog's books...this kid has so many books!  And last but not least, I found a chalkboard sticker that is just over a foot wide and 6 feet long, so I'm going to put probably four feet of that on the outside back of the bench

Pray for me y'all- I'm gonna make a bookshelf/bench/chalkboard thang! (yes, i totally said that in the voice of Lurlynn from Sweet Home Alabama.)
