Saturday we had a good old fashioned family day at a tiny town festival, complete with overpriced smoothies and funnel cakes. Despite the rising temperatures, we managed to have a great time at the pancake breakfast, racing in the Toddler Trot, hanging out at the library, at the parade, scoring loads of candy; running through Carry on!
On the good side, Brielle went poo in the potty. yay! Now the down and dirty…we were going to some yard sales in a nice subdivision, you know, new construction, expensive cars, professional landscaping. We had just left a garage sale, when Aviana said she had to go potty. Now being the country girl she Carry on!
So. Ahem. Brielle tends to get a really bad rash. Sometimes after her diaper change, when I fear no evil, I will let her run around without a diaper, to sort of let her air out. I’m sure you can see where this is going. I changed her into a spare long-sleeved turtleneck onesie that Carry on!
I have a bad case of the end of winter blahs. I am stressed out, maxed out, at the end of my rope, exhausted, overtaxed, tense; to say the least. We had a family overnight to an indoor water park and a children’s museum. I guess our kiddlets are still too young for that sort Carry on!
I’m grossed out by looking at and touching these fingers. The skin is all leathery and alien. They ache and tingle. Ick. Thanks. I feel a little better now. But I think I’ll go have some Breyer’s French Vanilla with warm homemade chocolate sauce just to be sure.
*I had Heartstrings (Bible study) this morning. I didn’t really want to go. It was cold and I was running late and haranguing everyone out the door. Aviana, who only the day before went to MOPS preschool without so much as a backwards glance, clung to me with lobster claws, leaving me once again to Carry on!
Defining Today 10–Making Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins with two little helpers –This recipe* is from Deceptively Delicious, which I just checked out from the library. It helps you figure out how to hide veggies in just about anything! Love that concept– 9–Figuring out that a single Smartie is a great bribe! I got the Carry on!
It’s all fun and games until the house burns down. If you look on the stove behind the ice cream scene, you’ll see the honey (in a plastic bottle) I was trying to decrystallize sending smoke signals. This is what happens when the bottle melts to the pan. And while I’m feeling confessional, Brielle is Carry on!
We had a new group of people over the other night. It was kind of a spur of the moment thing, but I still had time to pick up the house and clean (which, to my way of thinking, are separate entities entirely). I love seeing the house tidy. I love having an excuse to Carry on!
An evening trip to the pumpkin patch would not be one of the brightest ideas I’ve ever had–why do these things only ever play well in my head? Can I just live in my head? Our bank was offering a children’s event at a local pumpkin patch. We would get to go and enjoy such Carry on!
