Hailey picked these pink beauties out at Target the other day and has been obsessed ever since. When I went into her room yesterday morning, the first thing she said to me was “boots peeze?” How could I say no? So much for sandals. The girl is ready for fall! …and a rodeo.
Not Staging Food.
I’s sorry for the WIAW fail, but I was so excited to construct Hailey’s pretty breakfast, that I ate my own like it really appears- straight out of a measuring cup. So why bother with Hailey’s food? Well, MUNCHKIN MEALS link up is tomorrow, so please join in! Plus, it was a special day…
First Day Jitters.
Were there tears? Nope! I reserve tears for the really big events, like haircuts. And as for Hailey, she did great. The teachers said she was so polite and played happily the entire time. One even whispered to me that she claimed her for the year because she loves her so much. I know, it’s not even an attempt at being humble, but my heart just about exploded with pride.
Red Pepper Flakes.
Is there anything better than having a delicious, hot meal ready to go? Yes, the meal plus red pepper flakes. I promise there is some spaghetti squash and meatballs with marinara underneath the blanket of red pepper flakes.
Learning new tricks.
Because evidently the tin foil makers KNOW that the roll doesn’t stay in place, which is why they made these handy-dandy push-in tabs to hold it in place. Mind = BLOWN.
$5.00 worth of cheap elbow macaroni has proven to be the wisest investment in child rearing to date. Forget college funds and warm clothes for winter, pasta is where it’s at.
Not taking pictures of every bite of food.
Because I figured you all know what a handful of almonds, a couple slices of cheese, another bowl of spaghetti squash and a carrot look like.
Freshly scrubbed and polished toes.
I promise to be more productive during Hailey’s next day of preschool.
Better than Bouillon
Because it doesn’t have MSG or trans-fats, which DOES make it better than those little cubes.
I made chicken tortilla soup during nap time. Every so often I get nervous to make an old recipe. Was it really that good? Well, yes, yes this one is. MAKE IT.
It can be hard to find people that are as loyal as your dog. Always there, even on the busy days, happy, licky and tail-wagging. OK, long wog today just for these sweet puppy eyes.
Putting the camera away in the evenings.
Because it wouldn’t be appropriate to post a picture of David in just boxers. Plus, it’s nice to put the gadgets away and just relax with my sweet husband once he gets home.
What is one thing that makes you smile on a daily basis?
