as a mom, i should know to always be stocked with snacks. but do i remember to check my bag all the time? lately, micah hasn't been too happy in the car on the way home from daycare unless he has a snack in his hand. usually i would have done errands during my lunch break, so snacks are always handy. but today, i was frantically searching my bag for anything and came up with nothing but a plastic spoon. so i passed it back to him, and the screaming stopped. most of the time kids don't need those fancy shmancy toys from the store. they are happy with what we adults already have - a remote, cell phone, digital camera, computer, and in my case, a spoon.
