No more browning apples for lunch.

This is about a year or so too late for my gang, although I still cut up their apples after school because they prefer it that way and also because they do get wiggly teeth that make it hard to bite into apples.

But I cannot be alone when I say; I have no idea how many apples I have cut up and continue to cut up, for children, in my lifetime! They’ve come around to eating the peel *yes*.  I used to have to core, peel and slice 10 apples, easily a day for my family!  Continue reading

Baking?? Who am I??

I don’t know what’s come over me but I think I have a problem, a big problem.

I have been baking.  Seriously.  I’m not kidding.  BAKING!  And some serious baking.

I saw some browning bananas the other day and normally I would wait another day or 2 to see if anyone puts them to use and if not I throw them into the freezer until the next 6 month bug I get to make my go to banana bread.  But no, not this past week, I saw them and thought, Hmmm I can make a banana cream cheese pie or a banana cream pie, I do after all have 2 graham cracker pie shells in the cupboard that have been there for quite some time…

Image

I even looked on line for a banana cream pie/pudding/cheese cake recipe, I even checked if I had the ingredients and I made a list to pick up the missing ingredients I was missing during the next visit to the grocery store. *gasp*

Who am I??

Has my Mr. been slipping some herbal substance that causes increased domestication into my tea?  When it comes to the possibility of him getting more sweets and baking in the home, I wouldn’t put it past him…

Bickering

Do your children bicker?

Good Lord, help me.  Mine do.  And I know, I know all kids do.  Especially when there are three children in very close age proximity. (been there, done that, this is my second ‘batch’ of them)

But sometimes I am absolutely dumbfounded about the petty (to me) things that my children choose to bicker about.

How do you feel about this idea?

Image

Oh, imagine the possibilities…
XBOX-2/PS3-4/Wii-U plugs, laptop/computer/ipad/ipod/phone chargers/power cords
even hair straighteners and blow dryers, heck even the entire TV!

Is it wrong of me to be excited to see this plan in action and the reaction it will get?

Let your creative ‘fruit’ juices flow…

So I think I’ve hit the jack pot here.

I have been searching far and wide for the right opportunity to score major Mommy of the Year points with my little ones (yes, I want to make my children happy…) and I know, that I have found a winner!  My daughter will go absolutely nuts if I present her an orange shaped like this…..

We will be having major  quantities of fresh squeezed fruit juices and fruit salad over the next few days while I attempt to create even some kind of semblance to a cat, which is highly unlikely but I’m sure I will score even more Mommy of the Year points (in my own mind anyway) for even attempting this….

When was the last time you made a new friend?

Image

 

Don’t you love it when you meet someone that you really click with?  You know, that friend that you meet and you just know that you are going to hit it off with a fondness that will last for many years to come.

 

But don’t you love it even more when your hubby or significant other hits it off with their significant other too?  It’s so fantastic since we all know it isn’t as easy to have the couples hit it off and it sure as hell is much easier to make time for friends when your partners hit it off too, am I right?

But the icing on the cake is when you have children, approximately the same age that also completely hit it off!! Continue reading
