Made for another world

Brother and Sister

Maggie just had to sit up at the table with brother! The table was mine and my siblings when we were little, built for us by our PawPaw. Max uses the table for coloring, school work, snack time, crafts and until recently keeping things out of reach from Maggie. I love seeing him use the table I used when I was little. I love even more seeing him use it with Maggie now. I remember many a snack shared with my brother and sister at this same table. Sweet memories. I'm looking forward to them making their own. Max is an amazing brother. He rarely gets angry with her; always shares, often without even being asked to; loves entertaining her; watches out for her, maybe even a little too much and often tells her he loves her. I am a blessed Mommy!


  1. Okay, before I even started reading, I thought, "that is the cutest table!"

    I love things that hold memories--I'm sure it brings such joy and a smile to your face to see them sitting there together.

  2. Sweet, sweet, sweet. That table has stood the test of time....and little kids. I'm sure it will last another 20 years! I love Maggie's little waves at the base of her neck, so precious.

  3. I can't quite understand a brother and sister relationship, but it is good to get a glimpse of Max and Maggie figuring it out.

    Great table by the way- what wonderful memories.


  4. so fun that your kids are using something from your childhood. max and maggie are so cute together.
