A few words about Bethany

Bethany has done a couple funny thing recently that I want to share. My kids, like most, are not allowed to write on themselves or others. However, when they were spending so much time away from me and with at my parents' while I had mono, I did the unthinkable. I wrote on the backs of Joseph and Bethany's hands. Little funny faces on Joseph's and a flower on Bethany's. I told them it was to remind then that I loved them and missed them. They both thought this was really cool and tried not to wash my lacking artist skills off for days.
Bethany came over to me on Sunday and started writing on my hand, she wrote, "Mome" and then added, "I Love" to the front of it. I am a naughty mommy and thought is was very sweet, and secretly just can't bear to wash it off.
The other night I asked her to help me get supper ready, I had her roll crescent rolls and place them on the baking sheet. I was busy fixing my portion of the meal and had my back toward her. All the sudden the air in the kitchen turned to thick Lysol. As I was realizing how strong the smell was, I heard, "Shhh, Shhh, SHHHHHHH" I turned around to see Bethany spraying Lysol on each of the crescents! She had mistaken it for Pam.
I was disappointed that we wouldn't be eating them, but it was really funny. I told her if I hadn't noticed, we would have put them in the oven and they would have exploded into black nothings!

And do you do your own headers? They always look so beautiful.

That's funny about the crescents. I don't think my kids would know about Pam to begin with. Obviously they don't get to help me in the kitchen much. I don't think I am patient enough for that but I need to be b/c I don't remember helping my mom much in the kitchen either....I definitely want my kids to remember those things. Great Job Miranda!

That is so precious, not the Lysol but the markings on the arms. Sorry about the rolls!
