The Mom Chronicles. Day 3. Finally! Access to the Craft Room!

“I am 5 now! I can finally go into the craft room at the library!” A huge monumental birthday achievement! I am so pleased to say that my daughter waited so patiently for over a year and a half to be able to have access to this art room. Sure, in the beginning there were a few temper tantrums as I would dreadfully walk past the craft area every Thursday when my older son volunteered, but very quickly, it became ” I can’t wait until I am FIVE to be able to go in the craft room!” I truly believe this milestone for her was comparable to an 18 year olds ability for finally being able to see rated “R” movies, or a 21 year finally being able to buy liquor.

The Mom Chronicles. Day 2. A New Washer!

You know you’ve reached a certain level of mommy hood when your excitement is a new washing machine! A bigger, and more water efficient model at that! It detects the setting of my load? Takes less soap? And get this, when I was shopping for my new machine, I actually saw one washed AND dried in one machine! That will be all mine in the future!!
