so i don't forget.


I wish I could capture the rollercoaster of today. The fun of rolling out dough with you. The chaos of trying to explain that pizza toppings go on the pizza, not in your mouth. That fistfuls of olives aren't ladylike. I wish I could capture the terror of watching you dump an entire cup of hot coffee on your tiny feet. Of listening to you cry. Of holding you while you made the "pain" sign over and over and over. In the end, there are pictures. A tummy full of pizza dough and no visible scars. Not bad, ladies. Not bad at all.

Darn that coffee addiction! Richard and I were joking around yesterday about that depression commercial, who does depression affect? Everyone. So in your case, whoe does a coffee addiction affect? Everyone. I know mine does. No coffe for mamma? No peace all day!

I am sorry she hurt herself. It sucks when that happens.

Umm aparently y'all haven't heard of this place called Little Caesars, they make the pizza for you and it is right there ready to eat... hehehe, I like your way better.

Ok, I am rambling. I will call you later.

I love the pictures. The memories you are making with Claire in the kitchen will last a lifetime.

I'm glad that Claire is okay. Burns are so freaky.

She is adorable. It must have been heartbreaking to see her sign "pain". I think it hurts mommy so much not to be able to make it better right away.

I think the olives helped. She looks like she is having a blast.

What a great memory for Claire. Making pizza with Mommy. My kids love when they can "help" in the kitchen. Making cookies is their favorite. We have not been brave enough to try making pizza at home.:)
