rachfrakes Id like to thank amazon prime not only for delivering all the stuff I order to my door, but also for shipping it in an absurdly large box and thus providing my toddler a spaceship to decorate. (Especially since his dad is gone again this week.) 19h
  •   heidi_hopp Single mom's during the week club...Monday-Thursday! 18h
  •   haolepinos Hahahah!! That's awesome!! It really is the best when it can all be shipped at the same time! 16h
  •   rachfrakes @haolepinos the stuff took up less than half this box; the rest was packing paper. Crazy. 15h
  •   n_hep I order 1 pkg. of binder dividers ... The box they came in was 11" x 21" x 4". I think the box and packaging cost more than the dividers did. 14h

rachfrakes When he is at school, Elsie looks forlornly at his empty car seat and asks in the smallest, most pitiful voice, "where my bruh-dy?" (Which I think, is a combination of brother and buddy). She shrieks for joy when she sees him again. 1d

rachfrakes I've been going through our vacation photos and found this one of Elsie and my grandpa. I loved watching her give him her complete wide eyed attention as he whispered German words to her. I'm so glad all three of my grandparents were able to meet my babies, especially since I never know which goodbye might be our last. 4d
  •   kmbrlyfrakes She looks like karly in this picture 4d
  •   jtprice This is precious on so many levels 3d

rachfrakes Happy six years to the guy who gives me back rubs every night and makes a pretty stellar waffle. I love watching him waltz around the kitchen with our daughter and wrestle with our son. I'm grateful they have such a wonderful example of what a man should be. And I'm so glad to have him by my side through the eternities. 6d

  •   rachfrakes @n_hep she actually slept right through it! But she was confused when we went to go pick him up and he wasn't in his car seat yet. He was sad she couldn't stay at school with him. 1w

rachfrakes Luke with his Schultüte. It's a German tradition that on the first day of school (just pre school and kindergarten years) the child is given a cone filled with chocolates and a small toy. The intent is to "sweeten the taste for education in the mouth and mind of the child". I have fond memories of receiving my own Schultüten at his age and am thrilled to pass this on to my son. 1w
  •   mikellejade Is he going to preschool?? Wow! And that's cool tradition! 1w
  •   rachfrakes @mikellejade yes! His first year of preschool! Just 2x a week. 1w
