Mm-hmm or No Way: Would you eat a mustard sandwich?

Mm-hmm or No Way: Would you eat a mustard sandwich?

Hi there! I'm Melodie.

The Mm-hmm Shop is my little shop, and I thought you might like to see the face behind it. But pay more attention to the other face here... my oldest son at age 5, on a day I'm SOOO glad I said "Mm-hmm."

I say "Mm-hmm" as often as possible.

Sometimes it's the distracted kind of "Mm-hmm" I use when my kiddos are trying to show me their latest drawing while I'm on the phone with the doctor and cooking dinner and trying to feed the baby all at once.
Most of the time I try to use the sincere kind of "Mm-hmm!" The kind that lets my 5 year-old know that I really do appreciate that he made everyone mustard sandwiches for dinner, even though I've never voluntarily put mustard on my own sandwich in my life!
But I'm always telling my kids that the more often we say "Yes!" the happier we're going to be. And since I accepted his "recipe" as a valid offering, we now have a hilarious memory of our entire family choking down mustard sandwiches with the 5 year-old saying "Yeah, this is definitely the worst thing I've ever made." 
That's pretty much the point of this little shop... to provide products that will help your family connect and make meaningful memories in the small moments. Big, Instagram-worthy vacations come every once in a while, but beautiful memories can be made every day in the small moments of connection we share with those we love most.
