It is a GOOD thing I did make it to the gym this morning. It was a LOOOONGGG Wednesday home with the little kidlings. I even contemplated locking myself in the basement and doing another round on the treadmill. unfortunately, the staircase is open to the basement, so the whole “locking” myself down there part wouldn’t really pan out. and I should probably pay attention to my children that are all age 5 and under. call it instinct.
The afternoon went on as it usually does. I prepared a delicious meal for dinner, after I made the kids their a la carte lunches. I am a short order cook. breakfast, lunch and dinner these days. the girls cut up all sorts of paper and taped it all over my house. that’s what they are into lately. “kid” scissors and tape. what about the barbies all over the house and baby dolls? no no no. tape and scissors are soooo much more fun. While the girls were wrapping the inside of my house in paper, Luke decided he was hungry for some mandarin oranges and couldn’t wait for me to open the can for him. being all of 22 months, surely he can figure out how to do this by himself. just hop up on the counter, grab the kitchen scissors and have at it! good luck little guy. didn’t get too far, but I let him try. like I said, mr. resourceful. stimulates the creativity. no worries – I distracted him with matches to get the scissors away. toddlers really shouldn’t shouldn’t play with scissors. I think I learned that in motherhood 101.
We had mussels ( the little bam, as we affectionately call Anna, begged me to get at the store and was totally grossed out by when they were ready to eat) and these AWESOME salmon burgers. I want to eat these everyday. for life. so so good. I will post the recipe. de-lish!!!
