Yesterday we had our annual candy/cookie making day with my girls, my mom and a few friends and neighbors at the Wilkes house. This year it was more of a candy making day than a cookie making day.

Busy Mama’s Memory Can

Busy Mama's Memory Can

Please tell me I’m not the only mom with more than one empty baby book taunting me from the closet. In the classic motherhood cliche, I created a robust baby book for my oldest – chronicling every time he smiled, moved or pooped. But #2 and #3? The pictures I’ve taken are somewhere on my computer.
