Life Lessons from Zachary

Think Outside the Box
: This child as a toddler could create McGyverisms better than McGyver himself. Anyone could walk to a door, turn the knob and open the door. Zachary looped yarn through the poles of his crib, around the glider, and attached it to the doorknob so that when the glider rocked just right, the doorknob turned and the door opened.

Life Lesson
Learned: A solution might seem obvious and easy; don't assume it's the only answer. Study, observe, evaluate, and learn--and while you might end up with the same result, you'll have a lot more fun getting there.

Valentine's Day Dinner!

I was having a hard time deciding what to make for dinner, being limited in ingredients. Sooooo...this is what I came up with!

Mini deep dish heart shaped pizzas :o) I am so happy! They will be complemented well with our dessert that was also our breakfast snack, lol:

The recipe for this is from <--- click there...the recipe originally called for applesauce, the poster of the recipe changed it to sour cream, but I used applesauce and they were GOOD!

I am surrounded by love, I am so grateful for the Valentine gifts that are my children. I hope you had a beautiful, love filled day.

One more from Z!

This. Is. HILARIOUS. At least we thought so. ;-)

Zach'ism and a laugh

At my expense of course. Zachary created a really cool "telescope" out of a paper towel tube. Oh you silly person, of course that's not all there was to it, this is a Z creation! He found the hard tube from the roll of plastic wrap (that he emptied minutes before while creating a 'regular' telescope) would fit *almost* perfectly into the paper towel tube--it all just needed some adjustments. Implemented were Zach'ism #546, rubber bands for insulation and movement and VOILA, a 2 part, moving telescope. :-D

Now for the Laugh:
Z had me looking through the telescope, then he was looking, we were having fun and then it was time for me to get back to the...........ugh, L-A-U-N-D-R-Y.
Z called, muffled: "Moooooooom, c'meeeeeeeeeere!"
I answered: "Where are you?"
Z answered: "In the shoe closet!"
I went to the shoe closet, fully knowing he was in there but expected to find him doing something hilarious and looking through his telescope somehow. Nope. BAM he was right behind the slider I slid open and with his "BAH" I screamed and jumped, leaving him and Mallory in hysterical laughter. Yea, I'm way too easy to get, but as a good upstanding mother, I must say revenge will be sweet. O:-)
