What's for dinner?

Sometimes, no matter how well we plan, dinner is a mess. We get home late and the food needs another 40 minutes to cook but you have hungry children and husband. What do you do in these desperate times? You have a reverse dinner where you serve the dessert first. This is especially a crowd pleaser when said dessert is yummy Publix Ice Cream.

Birthday Extravaganza

This past Sunday was the girls birthday and it was celebrated in style that leaned to neither pink or blue. The morning began with a warm cup of tea from their new set, which was mostly blue or green and only the pot pink. After we finished our tea party/breakfast we set off for downtown to feed the local wildlife. Safely held by their father the girls showed no fear when the sinister geese encroached on our space or the numerous pigeons swarmed us for a handout. We all were sad though that the poor ducks did not get to join in the festivities. After completing this mission we headed off to the fountains where the girls gleefully lost their clothing and tried to either drink or stop the fountain.

It truly was a fun day and I am glad they had a good birthday. It was also a solid victory for team blue and a miserable failure for those rooting for team pink.

How to feed Toddlers

Sometimes your child is just plain stubborn when it comes to eating their food. No matter what they do mid-eating they suddenly do not like it anymore. I present to you the cure in getting them to eat better. Alligators. It can also help if you chomp on them with the alligators as well.

Ice Cream Sandwiches

This week the girls decided for the special food to have Ice Cream Sandwiches. They were quick to point out that they need something extra so they chose some Spaghetti sauce from dinner.

Play Time

It seems that either side in this war has vastly different ideas on how to have fun. If you asked someone from team pink they would offer the following ideas:
1. Tea Party involving ghastly pink objects, fake tea, and intense conversations with stuffed animals.
2. Chatting about others in a gossipy manner, which is a sin.
3. Going shopping and asking that silly question, does this make me look fat? Of which there is only one answer.

Now, when Team Blue gets together for some fun they are much more active in a wholesome manner. We wrestle with each other or play manly sports that require physical activity and contact.

This isn't to say that I want my daughters to be wrestlers but having serious physical activity is good for you and can be a lot of fun. Like in the video below.
