melimba Traced their bodies for window-scarecrows. We want to protect our mini garden. Genius! All Tillie's idea. Reflection time: Often, I begrudge cleaning up the million messes and feel like I spend my days refereeing and trying to keep everyone healthy and alive (the reason we've never gardened!). This parenting gig is harder than I ever imagined, but man, I had no idea how much FUN we would have. 4d
  •   granthouse Well said. And seriously you guys are the cutest! Love Tillie's idea! 4d
  •   katspear Exactly how I feel! We planted a garden in the spring and almost everything didn't make it . Lol. But it was a fun adventure for sure! And good reminder about the fun overshadowing the hard work! 4d
  •   meljessop You are an amazing mom! I'm in love with all of the fun and creative things you do with your kids! 4d
  •   nett_zap Look at them! My, how precious they are @melimba ! ♡ 4d
  •   kimhuish Such a fun idea! The fun stuff is helps makes me survive the not-so-fun stuff! Haha! 3d
  •   heathdiane Quote from my sister, "parenting is wicked hard!" Ummm yes. Agreed. 3d
  •   sbasil You're an amazing mother!!! 3d
  •   aaronaverywood Best mom I ever did know. Good work! 2d

melimba This kid LOVES cars, so riding in this mini-delight blew his little mind. 7d
  •   melimba @snyderem it's our neighbor's car! I'm considering finding one on Craigslist, though! He loved it! 7d
  •   melimba @snyderdenise haha! No, it's not that 4t one but it's a 3t one and it shows his tummy! 7d
  •   melimba @okolivia no way! That's the kicker, though! It's SO big! But, I keep debating if I should scour Craigslist bc he was SO happy! 7d
  •   amberjo That Face is pure joy! We got one for Lincoln for Christmas last year (from kid to kid) I scoured Facebook, garage sales and Craigslist too! It is big. And so far ours is still Inside usually! (As if we have the room ;) but both boys love it. Do it! 7d

melimba Calvin had the Letter Box at preschool today (brought 5 things from home that started with the letter "T"), was in charge of snacks (thank you, Costco muffins), and to finish off the morning, Dr. Wood came to visit. After Til got home, Aaron took them to watch a friend play tennis, eat at Taco Bell, and then play at the park. In summary, today might have been the best day of Cal's life. He gave it "10 thumb's up!" 1w

melimba "Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea, swim so wild and you swim so free..." My most favorite thing about San Antonio was living 6 minutes away from Sea World (we had season passes the five years we lived there). Annnnd I've loved baby belugas since I was five years old, singing along with Raffi. After reading the book to Benny today, belugas have been on the brain. So, I've been drawing beluga whales all night. Let's be productive and do a give-away! If you want this print, let it be known and I'll pick a winner, at random, tomorrow night at 10pm (my bed time. central time). Go, fight, win! 2w
  •   lindseymbullock I would love it! 2w

melimba Lately we've started eating healthier because we feel better (physically and mentally) when we do. However, on our quest to "healthy" I've decided that a life without chocolate chip cookies is not a life worth living. I miiiiiiiight even needle-point that. (PS I've found a new cookie recipe that might become my new gold standard. @jandeejo this is a breakthrough!) 2w
  •   natjmo I've been using the @jandeejo and @melimba fall back for a while now - so this is BIG news!! 2w
  •   melimba @hannahcraner @hertfordtaylor @jandeejo Google: thirty handmade days, 5 tips, chocolate chip cookies. It'll take you to the recipe and you TOO can partake of the goodness! 2w
  •   melimba @natjmo I know, right?! Give it a try and we'll get your take on it too!! 2w
  •   amberjo And they are as delicious as they look! Although I must admit, the bottom was glazed in salsa that had made it's way over on my plate. But Still delicious--so you know it must be a winner! If I wasn't so full, I would've tried a non-salsa dipped one 2w
  •   merijaynelind Yum! 2w
  •   nissa_lynn I could not agree more! @melimba 2w
  •   kimhuish I'm totally trying these right now. 2w
  •   wherethewildeysare Oh, hello temptation! I would eat them all because you make THE BEST. goodbye cookies. Nice knowing ya. 2w
