Learnings and reaffirmations of the past 24 hours

  1. That old adage "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" is an an old adage for a reason.
  2. Spending 15 minutes straightening up the house at night pays big dividends the next day.
  3. Forgetting to spend time straightening up the house before Daddy leaves at the end of the weekend requires major deposits in time and energy.
  4. Washable crayons and twistable colored pencils are absolutely, positively worth the extra money.
  5. The only way to get through the wardrobe into Narnia is to take an afternoon nap.
  6. A sewing machine is really only useable when it has been removed from its case.
  7. A banana oatmeal coffee cake made with a yellow cake mix will feed hungry kids in the morning almost as well as the uber-nutritious variety one probably should have made.
  8. "Shoulds" should be given-up in the first trimester.

Number 8 "should" be an old adage.:)

Hoping all your upcoming transistions go smoothly.

So are you going to post the recipe? I'm only interested in the short-cut version. I don't do uber-nutritious here! :):):)
