Forty-eight years ago today you became a Mom for the first time. I learned how to be a good wife and mother from you. Thank you for being a Good Example to us!
This is what greeted me this morning when I came downstairs to fix breakfast for the kids. Oreo is on TOP of the guinea pig igloo looking for her lettuce and carrots! Lucy is standing on the pellet dish.
After getting the kids out the door, I had a a healthy breakfast of homemade yogurt and my granola. This morning I learned that if you forget to turn off the yogurt maker when you go to bed and the yogurt cooks for..... let's say an extra eight hours,
it is still good.
