I did some laundry today.
One load I forgot on the line. Another load is sitting in front of the dryer waiting to be folded. The third is in the dryer because the basket is full in front of the dryer. One is still in the washer because there are dry clothes in the dryer and the basket is full.
I let Aviana go through her cookbook to choose something to make. She picked animal crackers.
I was pleased she chose a good healthful snack, which I made even more healthy by adding some whole wheat flour and flax seed to them.
Then they were too healthy tasting, so I had to add some sugar.
The girls were helping me SO nicely. They both wanted to roll out the crackers but we couldn’t find Aviana’s rolling pin. They were doing well; I offered to go get it for her.
When I walked back into the kitchen from looking for it out in the playhouse, I discovered Brielle had literally thrown the dough and flour ALL. OVER. the floor.
I picked up the biggest pieces and made the animal crackers anyway.
Only, we don’t have any animal cookie cutters, so really they are mostly pumpkins, apples and stars.
Both my dad and Kevin, when snitching from the piles of
animal crackers on the cooling racks, complained they were burned.
I have three piles: pile one=ok, pile two=a little crispy but generally still edible, pile three=for the chickens.
Why they both thought they would eat burned chicken food and then bellyache about it is beyond me.
My mom had checked out some audio books for Aviana which were due today.
We made a trip to the library with the primary goal of returning those CD’s.
We went through the our rather lengthy process of getting out of the house.
I returned huge armloads of books and DVD’s.
I forgot to double check that Aviana actually went upstairs to get the books on CD when I asked her to. (Sorry Mom!)
It was such a nice day, I thought we’d walk over to the grocery across from the library. I needed to pick up potatoes for dinner tonight and M&Ms (Brielle’s potty bribe) and then we could go for a nice little jaunt.
Potatoes were on sale. So were the bargain bags of bananas.
A person doesn’t walk far pushing a double stroller full of a four year old, a two year old, five pounds of bananas and twenty pounds of potatoes with a 17+ pound infant in the sling.
Even if it was a nice day.
Brielle has been wearing cloth diapers and with the M&M bribe staying dry dry dry. Yesterday was day seventeen of being dry dry dry all day.
So today, I told her she could wear her big girl bundies.
And I didn’t make potatoes for dinner tonight either.
I’m very well intentioned.
