This one is going …

on the wall of our "play" room:

Listen to the mustn’ts, child, listen to the don’ts–listen to the shouldn’ts,
the impossibles,
the won’ts–listen to the never haves,
then listen close to me–anything can happen, child. ANYTHING can be.
Shel Silverstein

been school shopping with my boys:

  3. Don’t you just love back-to-school shopping. I have 4 boys and it still cost a lot of money. I like my boys dressed nice though.
    See you at CE!!!!!!!!

  4. I love this quote Stacy! And it’s perfect timing, too–I was looking for that ‘just right’ phrase to put on a baby gift! : )
    See you soon!

    Wow Clark looks old! How come they grow up so fast!

  9. ohhhh, how I miss those days…..seriously!!

  10. So glad you’re back and continuing to inspire others:)

  11. I love that poem, too, so much so that I made this layout using it for my journaling!
    It is such a great message for our kids!!

  12. clark’s pic is so funny, had to call my daughter in to take a peak….she laughed too. we were just discussing the other day how girls make lists on paper for shopping, guys just write it on their hand….and voila, this picture proves it rings true in other families as well!!

  13. Love that poem! Always have. In college when we walked to get our diploma, the Dean read a quote of our choice..that one was mine.
    Thanks for inspiring!
