It’s been one of those weeks. Stomach bug weeks. Lots of extra laundry, sad little ones, fevers, and enough Netflix to fry our brains while we all pile on mama’s bed and recover.
Poor Lucy had it the worst. Temp of 103.5! That’s the worst fever we’d had over here in as long as I can remember. She was the most darling little invalid.
The Quotable Benjamin:
The downside to Benjamin learning to read is that he’s suddenly aware of advertising as we’re driving along:
“Hey mom! Wendy’s is open late! Did you know Gold’s Gym is free ALL SUMMER LONG?”
5yo Benjamin, irritated about my conversation with Daniel: “Stop talking about blogs. I DON’T CARE ABOUT BLOGS.” Noted, son. Noted.
“Well there’s some good news around here! I’m done throwing up!“- Benjamin puts a cheerful spin on catching the stomach bug at 3am, poor little buddy
The Quotable Lucy:
“I fink if I watch all da Daniel Tigers den I will feel reawwy bettuh.”- Lucy, temp 103.5
And yes to Kendra’s post on baby-led weaning (I don’t know if she even describes it as such, but that’s the gist): Starting Baby on Solid Food for Moms Who Don’t Have Time for That Sort of Thing
This is a helpful post from Katie at Kitchen Stewardship on freezing food. We always have too many tomatoes and peppers from the garden to use before they go bad and now I know what to do with them.
And these Tolkien illustrations are to die for.
