Mark has been out of town and so I am trying to run a pretty tight ship. Mason and Madison are going to a church activity with neighbors and won't get home until after 8:00, which means straight to bed. Anticipating a bedtime/evening crunch, I sent Madison to the kitchen to get started making lunches for the next day. I got distracted by a crying boy and stopped along the way to the kitchen to see what the problem was. Anyway, when I got to the kitchen, the below is a picture of what I found. She had "cut" herself a brownie for her lunch and put it in this tiny bowl - with a lid! I could not stop smiling. These were basically crumbs of brownie, but she packed it into her lunch with such confidence, and so neatly. I am still smiling thinking about that little bowl of brownie bits.
I am a WAHM (work at home mom) to 4 fun, busy kids named Mason, Madison, Matilda and Madox, ages 12, 9, 7 and 6. My last 3 kids are 16 and 17 months apart from one another, giving me stair stepped ages for 3 months in the summer. In May, when my baby turns 7, his sister will still be 8 and his other sister will be 9.
I am also a wife (of 19 years) to Mark, my high school sweetheart. He is the handiest guy I know and the best daddy I could have asked for; he even delivered our 2nd daughter right in the middle of the kitchen.
I have been an Etsy store "owner" since May, 2009. I am expanding and adding new items all of the time. And, I hope you'll visit me there soon.
