10 things I miss...

1.  Someone to walk Maddie to school in the morning instead of me rushing her out the door...almost always 5 minutes late...  I think being late is genetic.  I blame my father.


2.  Cooking good food for a full sized family... like this lasagna.  Which, this is the 2nd lasagna I've ever made in my life.  The first was a complete disaster.  It was about an inch thick because the sauce was too runny and I actually served the disaster to my mother and father in law.  (I'm so sorry you had to be part of my "learn to cook" experiment featuring lasagna!) 

I decided I had improved enough in my cooking skills for another try.  Used Pioneer Womans' recipe.  I nailed it.  (So proud of me!)



3.  Hair by dad...  Maybe its the constant grind of day to day...but I'd forgotten how much fun bathtub hair could be. 


 4.  Someone to paint my toenails for...


5.  Breakfast in bed!  I suppose it would be irresponsible for me to allow an 8 year old and a 2 year old to cook me breakfast without adult supervision...but when dad's around...guess what mom got! 


6.  Photos when you aren't quite ready...  (every time I look at this picture I laugh outloud.)


7.  Bella brushing daddy's mesmerizing hair...Its hard not to let your eyes wander up to his bangs when you stand there talking to him.  Mesmerizing.



8.  Romantic kisses... 


 9.  Kids trying to make daddy laugh... 


10.  Do I really need to even caption this one?

*sniff* I never even met the guy but this post made me start bawling! Your blog has made me feel so much of what you are going through doing the single mom bit that I guess all those sweet photos just got to me. Your beautiful face is already imprinted on John's heart, but I'm guessing that he'll be missing you more once he sees this sexy food, too! :)

I laughed out loud too. It made me think of a wedding photo of dave and I.

Also your lasagne looked awesome. I'm sure it tasted awesome too. Just the right amount of browned gooey cheese. mmmmmmm... It might just be what's for dinner.

I love this post in SO many ways, but most easily and fast because one of the ways I first most "met" and knew you (and Bella!) was through a bathtub hair photo. You're right, they are still so much fun! :)
