Mama puts herself in time out when she's about to lose it. Also, crayons go in time out when Cora decides to color everything in her reach orange while I cook dinner. (she found a random nub of broken crayon under something. Clearly my housekeeping skills are lacking here.)

I feel ya girl!

I LOVE this picture of Bennett! And Amos is getting so big! I can't wait to get to meet him. Sounds like Bennett has a creative soul...and imagination. I will pay money to have a conversation with him.
