The wild miracle of our lives and sponsor giveaway
Naturally, we like to dress up on the rare occasion that we go out to eat.
note to self: don’t thrust camera into hands of random woman on cell phone, lest she cut Dan’s antlers out of the photo.
How was your Valentines Day? I took Rose to our local candy store to buy some chocolate hearts for her preschool friends, and then like the festive mom I am, whispered to her as she was falling asleep: you have already forgotten the candy store exists. The truffles were enjoyed and Dan got me the watering can I asked for and a bottle of Irish Cream. All he requested for Valentines Day was a creme-filled pastry, which given the accompanying winks, must be a double entendre.
Also, I have another essay published on mamalode.com. It’s about Col turning seven and the improbablity of that sperm joining up with that egg and becoming this family that feels as immutable as stone, but really contains more chance than a night in Vegas. You guys have been great at helping me get paid, y’know, clicking and sharing. Thanks, again!
And, drumroll…new 6512 sponsor: KnitKnot and Gumdrop!
Liz, creatress of KnitKnot and Gumdrop is a Colorado, stay at home mom to 2 kids, 1 wonder mutt and a well loved coffee pot. She loves to create, travels with knitting needles, and can be found sewing during naptime and on evenings, knitting in coffee shops while listening to NPR podcasts. She and her husband hope to someday buy a chunk of land in Oklahoma and open a small-town knitting/craft shop where likeminded, yarn-loving folks can gather to drink coffee, sip wine, and knit.
We LOVE Liz’s aprons. Also, a face like that gets you twenty squeezes, five kisses and innumerable sighs of incredulousness.Rose calls her apron a “kitchen cape” and feels very professional in it. The pockets are key.“Coley, you’re supposed to put stuff in the pocket.”Making bread at a recent homeschool co-op day (studying “hearth and home” because we make up our own subjects!
