I haven’t updated this blog for 8 whole days. Wow. I was enjoying being a wife and mother and was glued to the TV watching all of the developments in Boston and West, TX.
Little 6-inch is really blossoming into a sweet little toddler. He still isn’t speaking (he will be 2 at the end of July), but he knows the baby sign for “more” and lets us know when he wants more food. He is also getting braver about trying and eating new foods, and for a child who has food texture issues like he does this is huge! This week he has discovered he likes biscuits, onion rings, fresh pears, fresh apples, fresh strawberries, noodles with butter, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. To his credit he did try edamamme but spit it right out.
6-inch and I spend many hours chasing each other up and down the hallway of our home while Footlong is at school and J works.
Footlong is looking forward to school ending soon. He went on a field trip Friday to a local museum and had a blast.
Footlong also lost his second tooth Friday evening!
I cooked Korean food this week. We had bulgogi (grilled, marinated sliced steak), jap chae (noodles made of sweet potato starch and stir fried with mushrooms, red bell peppers, onions, carrots, and cabbage), sesame broccoli, a pickled salad (cucumbers, onion, carrots, daikon radish, sugar, vinegar, salt, water), and kim chee. I hate to toot my own horn, but BEEP BEEP!
In the last month I have only bought 1 pair of shoes. I know….I am as shocked as you are.
The temps where we live are already in the low/mid 90s. I suspect we are in for a long, hot Summer.
J did the dishes today before I got up. I about swooned.
I am cooking dinner tonight. We are having fried catfish, oven roasted brussels sprouts, and corn on the cob. Drop by if you like. Tucson International Airport would be your best bet.
I really want to take a shower right now, but the dishwasher is running. I have to wait a bit so I can have hot water!
Footlong is going to a birthday party this afternoon.
Footlong will also be going to the Pima County Fair one day this week. One of us will take him while the other stays home with 6-inch. We know 6-inch will not be happy to be sit in a stroller for hours on end, and he will not ride any rides.
I have some friends that I would positively like to smack upside the head for various reasons.
A photo of MckMama’s youngest son eating a tampon showed up on a parenting fail blog today, and sadly I wasn’t surprised.
I got a grilled chicken bowl from El Pollo Loco for lunch, and those fuckers put cilantro all over it after I specifically ordered it sans cilantro. Cilantro is the devil’s herb.
