Happy ending to a slightly sad kitchen story.

Last week Middle was cooking one of her interesting meals – curry, I think it was – with a lot of pans going on the stove top at once. The food was great. The lasting effect not so much:


Pretty sad to have a permanent burn on your lovely backsplash. But one lesson I’ve learned as a mom is that making your kids feel miserable when they’ve done something that was purely an accident is a great way to ruin your relationship with your kids.

It’s the perfect colors and style for our kitchen. But so many questions…

It will keep us guessing – and smiling – for years to come.
