write it

I’ve sat down to write a post about a dozen times today and can’t keep
a thought still long enough to get it out. how about instead some photographic proof that I am a good holiday mom…

threw the boy down a hill on a piece of plastic

let him eat a kitchenaid full of sugar in cookie form


or how about this one. oscar in a trance watching "i love toy trains"
with his big plastic thrifted hotwheels garage in his lap sitting on
the unvacuumed rug while I pack up orders and write christmas cards.


if I was a truly good holiday mom I’d be scouring the city for the perfect soap-loving santa!

    When my boys were small (they are 9 and 11 now) I Love Toy Trains was their favorite video! They usually got that same tranced look on their face, too 😉 That video is long gone now; we don’t even have a VHS player anymore. Thank you for reminding me…I should find a DVD copy for my 3 yo daughter who just recently discovered the joy of Thomas the Tank Engine.

    He is such a lucky boy, and the first pic brings me back to my childhood. I remember riding down the big hill in front of our apts on a plastic trash can lid. Loved it.
