the tin bucket story

I've been talking about opening a store since my daughter was two.  She hasn't been two for a long while...

 

Talking about my store got me through a lot. (Feeding, sweeping, ear infections, night waking’s, this could go on for a while...).

 

Talking about my store made me happy.

 

And as it turns out, my kids were actually listening (beware parents - yours are too!).

 

I sat in the yard, watching my two oldest play with their little friend, Sara.  

They stuck a stick in the dirt, tipped a bucket over onto it, and taped a sign to it that said

"Tin Bucket". 

 

"Mom! Tin Bucket! That's the name of our store!"

 

And now - at last and finally -

 

It’s the name of mine.
