2012 Schäfer Wish

Whenever Schäfer says he likes something, I add it to a list on my phone. We try to teach the kids not to say, “I want this.” But rather to say, “I like this.” I always reply, “Great! I’ll add that to your list.” Then I take out my phone and add it to a

2012 December Daily :: 21 :: Friday Night

Today, all I did was laundry and dishes.

If you came to my house, you would say, are you sure you’ve done laundry and dishes?

Christmas is in 7 days.

That blows my mind.

2012 December Daily :: 17 :: happy birthday to me

The day started out at normal. The kids climbed in bed and gave me extra snuggles.

Hubs made the biggest breakfast ever: eggs, bacon, toast with butter and raspberry jam.

The kids headed off to Chinese school. Selah started on her craft projects.

Selah and I started dishes, washing cloth diapers, picking up the
