"Mommy and Paige" A Story For My Punkin

Every night, right before I go to bed, I sneak into Paige's room, stare at her for a few moments, give her kisses and tell her how much I love her. As I was going through that little nightly ritual earlier this month, it struck me as quite hilarious that even though I spend seemingly every breathing moment with this little girl during the day, I still miss her so much her after she's gone to bed that I have to tip-toe in and see her once more before I go to sleep. She just absolutely owns my heart.  Anyway, that night I thought of making up a little story about it, and now it's finally finished! 

I wanted to share it with you guys, too. :o) I hope you enjoy it!

There it is! :o)
I'm looking forward to getting it bound somewhere one of these days. Every page documents real-life Paige-isms and I think it will be something fun for her to keep and look back on her childhood.
I know I promised a how-to for those of you who have Photoshop and would like to make something similar, and I will have that up soon!

In the mean time, have positively lovely day!
Love,
-Disney

  3. Wow Disney! That's absolutely wonderful! I can't wait for the tutorial so I can try to put something together for my little ones. I can't draw worth a hoot, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.

  4. That's beautiful, Disney! I think it's beautiful how much you love your little girl, and it's easy to see she loves you just as much. Your illustrations are pretty good too! The give your book a very warm, personal touch - from the heart.

    Have you heard of lulu.com? It's a handy site that offers lots of different options on book binding. Check it out when you have time!

  11. Disney, this is totally wonderful! You truly inspire me! My dad has loads of poems he wrote for his children and grandchildren ever since I was very little. I should get it done like this as a present to him. Thanks a million for sharing this, I totally appreciate this.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a incredible memory for you both!! THanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is the best thing ever. I did something similar for my daughter with my favorite pictures of her first couple years. She still loves to look at it.

    Print it through BLURB. They are the best and have lots of different sizes. I as a photographer have printed many affordable books through them.

  32. I love it! such a good way to keep record of Paige's life with her Mummy!

  33. That's really cute, i think that's a very nice thing to do and Paige will certainly love to read it again and again in the future, and maybe, she will show it to her future children!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Truly amazing... LOVE IT... It shows very much how much you love your daughter...

    ReplyDelete
  35. awww too cute! :) im sure she will look back one day and love it lots!!

  36. That is seriously an amazing book, Disney! The drawings are wonderful, it is FUNNY (the look on your face when Paige wakes you from your nap is hilarious), and the ending is so sweet! I feel the same way after a day with my 3 kids, (most) everynight I miss them when they're asleep! Thank you for sharing!!

  37. This is so sweet. And then today at Pioneer Woman - THIS: http://thepioneerwoman.com/homeschooling/2011/08/how-to-make-books/

  38. ADORABLE! I especially love the helping in the craft room page, because that is exactly how i look most days. My crafts take place in the dining room, and my daughter doesn't "hear" the word NO. Much more "Put that down please" than crafting going on. lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's adorable! I think my girls need one.

    ReplyDelete
  40. So sweet. I especially love the look of "relaxation" on your face while in your craft room. I believe I furrow my brow in confusion more than smile and think "happy thoughts". Somehow the projects still get done and we come back for more. I am sure Paige will share this with her kiddos one day!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Such an amazing story, and so sweet too! I had to laugh at the craft room page, my boys ripped the curtains down in mine too. And usually that's how I look after they have discovered a plastic bin of my fabric and empty it all out on the floor.

    ReplyDelete
  42. How precious! Paige will absolutely love having this when she's grown up (and she'll love being the star of a story right now, too!) I love all of the "Paige-isms" in it. Just adorable.

  45. I love this! What a fun and sweet idea for the both of you to have and treasure!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You are so cute! And your story was wonderful. I have been wanting to do one of these for my son but I wanted to take real pictures of his Woody doll having adventures while he is sleeping or something. One of these days I might even get around to it! haha

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is adorable, and you both with treasure it always! =-)

  49. The two of you are like a bundle of joysticks! I love reading stuff about you & P,it makes me so happy,gives me a sense of relaxation! You're such a fabulous illustrator Disney! Such cute details that you havn't missed out on! I love the book! :D I wish I could bind it for you & post it to you! The binding charges here in India are really cheap but the delivery charges are really expensive! If you ever come to India for a short vacation with Paige, I'll be so glad & excited & happy to meet you guys! Such a happy family! *touchwood & God bless* :D :)

  55. Just wanted to let you know that you can get your book printed for around $10 at snowfallpress.com! I had a 100 page book printed and shipped for around $10 - and just for one!

    ReplyDelete
  56. That book is beautiful. I'm sure she will treasure it as she gets older, especially once she can understand the humor of some of it. I can't wait to see your tutorial so I can make one!

    ReplyDelete

  61. This is too sweet! How special that Paige will be able to hold onto your special memories forever!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wonderful story and wonderfully done. If I were a publisher I'd want to publish it. I especially loved the bits of humor (like the 'really long naps' and how you and Paige wake up at the same time each day. And mommy and Paige in the craft room having fun.) Delightful.

    You have so much talent. I love how you use your gifts. You make the world a better place. You inspire me to be a better person, a more creative person. Your love of Jesus shines through. Thank you for sharing that love in a meaningful way.

  65. This is so cute! I think I might do something similar for my kids for Christmas this year.

    I just had a book printed through blurb.com and I thought they were awesome. The price was very reasonable and I am really happy with the result. I would definitely recommend them.

    ReplyDelete
  66. So cute... So adorable... I'm sure Paige will love it!!!

  71. You never fail to astound me, Disney. Paige is one lucky little girl. Gorgeous. I'm a bit lost for words, actually. Xxx

  72. Disney,

    Try shutterfly. I had them make a book for my dad for Father's Day with his great-grandchildren in it. They just might do this for you too!

    I love your blog! It always makes me smile no matter how rough the day.

    Take care and God bless

  74. I love it. This has to be my favorite post of yours ever! You're motivating me to do one for my kids...by the end of the year I'll have 4??? You need to get your tutorial up soon so I don't run out of time ;-).

    Thanks for sharing! It is simply delightful.

    ReplyDelete
  75. This is so adorable! I love this type of gift...hooray! She's going to love it.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Whoa!! This is such an awesome book (with the cutest illustrations!!!) that it provoked me out of my lurk-dom into commenting!! Great job, what a treasure for Paige to have (and you too!) (now I'm wishing I was a book publisher/agent. Gah!)

    ReplyDelete
  77. I've been wanting to make something similar for a long time, yours turned out very witty and pretty :). I can't wait for the tutorial.
    I have been following your blog for quite some time now, and have enjoyed making many of my own projects based on your tutorials.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Looooove that story! So stinkin' cute. I thought it was funny that the nap was only 3 minutes long, lol. This is such a good idea, thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  79. That's so awesome...what an amazing keepsake and loving thing to do :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. That is the most precious thing I have ever seen. I want to make one with my daughter! I wonder what she'd say (she has two brother sandwiched on either side of her and they keep me on my toes too). :) Thank you for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Disney, this is seriously the cutest thing ever! I wish I had a book like this as a kid, and I will seriously consider making one for my future children! :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hi Disney, you should get this published, its so refreshing and cute. Definitely a keeper for Paige, one day she will be reading it to her own kids! By the way, what's not to love about Paige? Thanks for sharing xx

    ReplyDelete
  83. Wow, what a wonderful post. I love it because I can relate to this post.. This is so special for mom and daughter bonding..

  84. That was soooo flippin' adorable! <3

    ReplyDelete
  85. Haha! This is super adorable. So very charming. And how fun for your little girl to enjoy! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Disney, you are very funny! Favorites are the times on the clock at naptime, the things Paige is playing with in the craft room, and your "relaxed" face at the sewing machine. Ha! I laughed and I know she'll enjoy this now and when she's older and has her own kids. Bravo.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Shucks! That made me a little teary. I would love to do something like that for my sons. What a blessed little girl to have a Mummy(Im Australian and that is how we spell Mommy)love her so much. I believe it is so so important to tell your children how loved they are. My parents weren't the openly expressing feelings type and it is such a shame. all people need to hear how they are loved. Im sure Paige will cherish it always. Thank you for sharing

  88. Hah ah ha haha ...çok güzel! Umarım Tanrı sizi hiç ayırmasın.

  92. I LOVE it! What a wonderful thing for your daughter to have, I love this idea!

    ReplyDelete
  93. A cherished gift forever! Friends of my 18 yr old daughter found one they had done and bound that was about my son who was their school safety. It was so fun to look back! I have bound some photo books at snapfish, but had them printed locally(Walmart, Meijer and others)and the price is so much cheaper. There is a link right on their site to pick up vs ship.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Oh goodness! As I was reading this, I kept thinking to myself how it could be the story of my little girl and me! Though she is just 3 and 1/2 so we are going to be trying home preschooling this year. I love finding other mommies that I can relate to. So often I feel that I am doing things so much differently than all of my friends and it gets me wondering if I am messing up my girl... Thank you so much for sharing!

  95. This is so great! I think you have something really special here.

    I love the part where you and Paige are in your craft room--the simple illustrations are great, and there's definite comic relief.

  99. You wrote this shortly before my daughter was born, but I'm just reading it now. I had a tough day with her today and just got her to sleep. Reading this made me cry, reminding me how blessed I am to have her. I hope she'll call me her best friend too.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I loved it! I´m sure this is a precious treasure for your daughter.
