All By Myself

I love this stage... But someone else needs to clean it up.

I love these rare occurrences of all three kids playing together nicely. It is totally spontaneous and they get in a groove. Unfortunately it never lasts as long as I want, but soon I will tell them all how wonderful they are and that they must be such good brothers and sister to be playing so nicely... Then send the boys outside to get their wiggles out before dinner!

A Savory Surprise

Do you know what is fun? Taking a bit of lettuce and realizing after you have thoroughly chewed it that it is definitely NOT lettuce... perhaps mustard greens? Now, what to do with a head of mustard greens...

So, a friend of ours gets fresh produce from a local organic csa farm. It is generally more than they can eat so occasionally they will bring over a couple of things that they won't or can't eat. Apparently mustard greens are in that "won't/can't" group. And, now they are in mine. However, as Daddy points out, this would be great on a sandwich... no need to add mustard! As a side note, we are currently tracking our produce expenditures and seeing if we can afford to split a large weekly box with them. I am thinking we should have no problem finishing off a box in a week between all 8+ (she's the plus, not me). :)

Glad I'm an OT

Trouble with stitches:
- 3 years old
- at the bendy part of the leg... the knee
- increased tolerance for pain
- 7 stitches need to be kept immobile

Lucky I had some splinting material lying around.
