the tin bucket story
I've been talking about opening a store since my daughter was two. She's 15.
That’s a lot of talk.
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
"Mom! Tin Bucket! That's the name of our store!"
And now - at last and finally -
It’s the name of mine.
