Molly's teacher asked me to put together a mailbox for the kids to use on Valentine's Day. I quickly responded "sure, I live for this kind of stuff" (no, I am not kidding I actually said that - weird, I know).
So she brought me 2 wine boxes and said to do my best. I love a project with no guidelines! This is what I came up with...
All the hearts pull right off - so they can use it after the 14th for a unit on how to write letters. I was really thrilled with the way it turned out.
So here is my mom story.... (a mom story is a story a mom tells everyone about her kids that she thinks makes her kids look so cute or clever when in reality the stories bore everyone else to tears.)
So tonight I was making cookies for hubby and daughter to hand out at school when my beautiful 3-year-old came to me wanting to help. I asked him if he would like to use the cookie cutters and he said "no, I want to steamer the cookies".
I kind of looked at him funny and he got that great "I am so exasperated with my mother" look on his face and said to me (really slowly - as if that would help me to understand him) "you know Mommy, steamer the cookies?!?" This time he motioned as if he was rolling out the dough. I started laughing and said "Oh, so you want to roll out the dough" to which he quickly responded "yes, that what I say - I be the steamroller."
