Unforgettable “Quotes” Captured

A tiny photo of a book that will have huge heart warming impact in our older age.

When my boys were very young I started a journal of all their wonderful quotes. My record keeping of these pearls of wisdom didn’t last very long because I didn’t have just one booklet dedicated to this. I wish I would have done this but here is a journal for you mom’s out there who still have time to capture these precious words or for new mom’s to be. What a great gift for a baby shower or for Mother’s Day, don’t you think?

I found it at Paper Source.

Son2 came up with especially thoughtful insights in pre-school always as I was tucking him in bed:

Reflecting on his little light brown patch birthmark:
“My freckles are having a party.”

“I know what happens when we die. We keep coming back over and over again.”

I love being a mom. 🙂

The First Last Days Of Summer

Monday and it’s August 2nd. The countdown has already begun.My heart begins to thump in my chest.

This is one of them for me.The response has been great for the Cocktail Napkin Swap so if you’d like to join us we’d love to have you! You… [Read More]

A Name So Sweet

While I was in the waiting room today there was a mom with her high school son who was waiting for a physical. The mom began to question the receptionist as to the dates of when the last time the son had some shots or whatever. The boy apparently had had enough and said,“Maaawm!” There is something about that long drawn out vowel sound in our names that says, ‘you do not have a brain’ or ‘I am so embarrassed’… [Read More]
