A few snow flakes have fallen in Georgia. This has caused a state of emergency in which schools and businesses have closed. My kids have been out for a few days. And you know what that means: Mama gets pestered with the inevitable, "Mom, I'm bored!"
So, yesterday, we came up with the brilliant idea to make brownies. My daughter did most of the baking. Soon the house smelled like chocolaty brownies. I went upstairs to fold laundry while the brownies finished baking. About ten minutes later, I heard a lot of voices. . . and they weren't ones I recognized.
I went downstairs to see what was going on. You wouldn't believe what was in my kitchen. Six kids! "Where did you come from?" I asked.
One of them grinned. "We heard you were making brownies, and wanted wanted to try some!"
Oh. Apparently word travels fast in my neighborhood!
So, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a house full of kids, just bake brownies.
