Thanks for the memories.
That was my alternate title for this blog, because I am a Magnet Mom. My refrigerator and freezer are crammed full with the magnets my kids learned their alphabet with, magnets from places we’ve been, magnetic picture frames that hold photos of my girls special moments and the photos of families and friends, and magnets that hold the best tests, art work, and notes from my girls.
In my excitement over getting new appliances, it never actually occurred to me what I would be losing. We did all the appropriate research, and found appliances that were going to work well with our lifestyle and suit our needs. But I forgot that magnets ARE a need. I wanted an ice maker, French doors, no can holder that would be wasted space for our family of bottle users. No where on my list of “wants” was there “Must be capable of allowing magnets to stick”.
So, we ended up with a brand new, stainless steel, Electrolux, French Door refrigerator that has all the bells, whistles, and lack of a can holder that we were looking for. And it won’t allow magnets to stick.
While I try to make room on my downstairs freezer for the stories of my life, here is where some of the greatest artists, best spellers, and most photographic children have resided for the past 20 years of this family’s existence.
