Helping mom cook

Helping mom cook

Here is the big girl, finding a glass casserole dish lid for me. She banged them together for a good ten minutes, too. Who would have thought that I'd be so tolerant of such racket, and not even stop and think how annoying it really is? I mean, I spend my days listening to an almost-toddler yell and bang and sing and drop things all day long, and I haven't grown tired of it yet.

I guess a mother's prayer is, "Lord, give me ears to only hear the important noises, and eyes to see every speck of dirt on the floor."

Believe it or not, I was three days away from my due date on this day, last year. Amazing! So much has been changing that I don't even remember what it was like before.
