Childhood MemoryWe had a hand-held shower head and my earliest favorite memory was getting a hold of it once during a bath and spraying water everywhere, sending my mother and sister shrieking with laughter (maybe some annoyance) from the bathroom.
Childhood ToyA wicker baby carriage. I still have it, or rather, our daughter has it.

Memory with a Child This is one of about 5 million favorites: my 2.5 year old daughter got her shirt wet playing and, after realizing that I wasn't going to treat this as an emergency, tore past me into the kitchen and to put her shirt into the salad spinner
Memory with SpouseWhen Allen proposed. We had hiked up a mountain and, at the top, Allen started asking me questions designed to lead to a big reveal but I totally didn't catch on. By the time he proposed we were both in hysterics over how badly I had derailed his plan.

Thing to CookQuiche. Or anything in pastry dough. The amount of work it actually takes is so much less than how much work people think you actually put into it. And people will eat anything when it involves cheese and eggs.
