You Know You're a WAHM

You know you're a WAHM when your afternoon "sound track" is your 3 year old reading her books in her room during "rest time."

I sure will miss hearing her when she goes to Kindergarten.

Have a "You know you're a WAHM" story to share?

You Know You're a WAHM

You know you're a WAHM when going to the tax man is a family event.

We left the 3 year old with a friend but took the 10-month old because she's still nursing and is unpredictable about taking a bottle.

Hubby and I took turns entertaining baby. She thankfully fell asleep in the baby carrier for a good while.

Tax man talks numbers with my hubby because he gets a blank stare when he discusses them with me.

Brilliant Publicity Event

I just read about Henry's Homemade Ice Cream parlor in the Plano Insider.

They have an annual tradition that is just brilliant.

They coordinated an event around current news (Girl Scout Cookies) and paired it with a charity event.

The company celebrates all the hard work of Girl Scouts by buying two boxes of Girl Scout cookies from any scout, wearing their uniform who comes inside. The owner guesses he has purchased from about 200 scouts. As you can imagine, the boxes of cookies add up! (30 cases this year!)

He then makes the cookies into ice cream flavors. Uh, I'd love to try some Thin Mint ice cream!

The company has been doing this for 17 years!

They also employ celebrity scoopers including the former Mayor of Plano. I would suggest that this company invite the food reporters from the Dallas Morning News as well as news reporters to be scoopers.

Congratulations to Henry's Homemade Ice Cream Parlor on such a brilliant event.

You know you're a WAHM

Check out this photo. It's made with one of my favorite baby products: Baby Legs! (baby leg warmers)

Dusty sent this to share:

You know you are a WAHM...
"I'm a WAHM, we all are, I know, but I also run my business from home. This is a new thing, it's only been a few months so we are still having friends over that we drag downstairs and proudly show 'the biz' to.

I make flower bouquets with silk flowers and baby clothes rolled into flowers so there are all these lovely arrangements everywhere.

Our friends dutifully ooo and ahhh over them as I excitedly pull them all out for show and tell.

Inevitably, with a 7 yr. old daughter in the house, there are many bouquets on display that SHE has made and (you know this is coming :) inevitably, our friends will point to one of HER bouquets and exclaim with feverish excitement "OOHHH, that one's gorgeous! I REALLY like that one"!!

I strongly oppose child labor but am seriously beginning to wonder if I should be increasing my daughter's allowance in return for some design work?

Maybe I should just be proud!!"

You know you're a WAHM

You know you're a WAHM when you go into your baby's room after her nap and she's standing in her crib!!

I'm so thankful to be able to work from home and experience these thrilling milestones.

My little one has since perfected the standing technique and has been pulling herself up on everything.
