So, yesterday...it was the first day of school. I have one in high school, one in middle school (although, I don't really consider it middle school middle school, she's only in 5th grade, afterall), two in elementary school and one wee little babe still holding down her side-kick gig.

I like my little side-kick.

She watched all of her older siblings go off on special days with mama, and because she is all wise and stuff at 4 years old instead of just an unknowing 3 year old, she got sad this year. Sad that she didn't get a day with mom.

I promised her that when the kids went to school, she and I would go do a little shopping...and pretty soon she started whispering, "When all those grimey kids go to school, then we'll go, mama?!"


And so we did. And we had lunch. And she was the recipient of some cute clothes.

Then, my husband called to proposition me.

Oh, now STOP IT! He just needed a little techie help with setting up Skype for a potential something or other that may or may not be happening. And, really, I'm not being vague. That's just about as much as I know about it. "Something or other that may or may not be happening."

I've learned it's best to just keep my nose out of business...most of the time.

Anyway, sorry about the hiatus from Gram's Recipes...I had intentions of posting this week, but got too busy! Tomorrow though? "Pork and Apple Pie" which isn't nearly as skeery as it sounds...it's a meal. And it is FAB-U-LOUS!!!

Oh, and that photo above? Yeah, it doesn't have anything to do with this post...I just really like it. And, I really like the kid in it.



  1. Here I am wondering how I'm going to handle my two being at two different schools, and you have four at three schools and one at home. Kudos to you for making it all work!

  2. Love the picture. And wishing I could get a day of lunch and shopping with Mama M too!


I love comments! And, I welcome your thoughts that aren't in agreement with mine...as long as they are respectful!
