Putting on my “daddy” shoes


Being a “single” Mom for a year means that there will be times that I will have to put “Daddy” shoes on and fill in for him.  Today was one of those days.  Jakob and Jason spend some quality boy-time on the first Saturday of every month.  Home Depot puts on a Kids Workshop for free and they go every month.  It is just too much fun – they give the kids an orange apron and buttons for each project they complete. And then the boys go for lunch.  So today being the first of the month it was time for Mama to take him.  We had a blast.  He told me he missed Daddy, and going with just Daddy, but then he told me that it was fun to go with me.  Love that Kid!

Today he made a trivet….he made the frame for it and then we went and purchased a tile for the middle of it.  (so today’s was not entirely free!) He got to chose his own tile and he picked a great one.  I only wish we could have made more than one, as they would make great Christmas gifts!

Here’s Jakob hammering his little heart out…


FYI…..Aiden was with us….we think he is still a little too young to be hammering and using tools, but in the new year we hope to start him on his own projects.  Just think….when Jason comes home I will be getting one Saturday morning to myself!  SWEET!

So if you have little ones and haven’t tried this out – get yourself to Home Depot on the first Saturday of every month!!

Daddy, you were definitely missed!  But it made me feel good that Jakob thought I filled your shoes well!

Take Care,
Love Big, Bake Often
