Mommy's helper

For the past few Saturday mornings, we have been lucky enough to have pancake mix in our pantry and blueberries in our fridge. So, it is becoming a little tradition to have pancakes on lazy Saturday mornings.

This past Saturday I decided it was time to see if Charlotte could help me out a little. I pulled the kitchen chair up to the counter and put her on the chair. She didn't know what was going on. She didn't want to stand, she wanted to sit on the chair. (I guess the 1,000 times I've told her to sit down on chairs actually paid off) Finally she understood that it was OK to break the rule this once. She put each blueberry in one by one, then mixed them into the batter until they were "all gone."

After the pancakes were done cooking, Judd, Charlotte, and I sat down to eat our pancakes together. It really doesn't get much better than that.

PS. I'm really starting to love the vintage look some photographers give their images. I've dabbled some and getting close to something I really like. I know some of you probably wish I'd just leave the pictures alone, but you'll have to get over it because I think you'll be seeing my take on this style more often now - at least for a little while.

PPS. Don't you love her right arm in this picture?

PPPS. I think I'm going to hit my 300th post on my 30th birthday. I'm thinking that just may be a great reason to have my first ever blog giveaway...stay tuned.

She is quite the girly, girl with that right arm. I love the style of the picture. Somehow it looks very 50ish.

Love the editing - great job! I agree, it looks like something out of the 50s or 60s. Very "vintage" :)

It reminds me of a Norman Rockwell type. I may be way off on that, but that is what I think of when I see the photo. :)

Happy early bday!

Love the pic! I think the editing looks really good, actually :)

Keep up the vintage look, I love it! And what a big girl Charlotte is becoming. I'm so impressed with the very developed pretending in the previous post, the kitchen help in this post, and little miss Toddler 2 : ) I hope the rest of the week at school goes better for her (and you).
