{this moment} x 2





A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment to pause, savor and remember.

  3. Well, jeez, you didn't think *I* did all of the chores I talk about on my blog?!? If I did, I'd never have time to blog, and wouldn't we all be sad about that :).

  4. I've found that kids want to help. Not be ordered to do it while the parents eff off to do something else (or watch TV), but to help the parents do stuff. Even if they slow things down, they're getting some valuable parent time and at least feeling like they're contributing. I might have to introduce Mason to a garden come spring. :D

  5. Last week I talked a tree company that was removing about 6 trees from a neighbor's house to dump the wood chips in my yard. (Did I mention they were full sized trees? The pile was bigger than me!) Though the neighbors think I'm amusing (wierd!), my 4 year old got right to work with me....with his shovel and whellebarrow, and we started mulching our garden paths.....and everything else....in my (not-so) secret quest to erradicate our lawn.

    Yes, FARfetched, I agree. Kids do want to help. That's the real way to learn...and it sticks with them. :)
