Toddler Whispers

This afternoon when Mr. 4 and Miss 2 were finished napping, Baby J and I were not. She was snoozing away, elevated on my chest in my bed, and I was enjoying every blissful second. Knowing that either way it had to end, I invited the two littles to join us. “Come in here, guys, but you have to whisper. Baby J’s sleeping.” I’m so funny. We all know that little people whisper about as well as they tip-toe.

Here’s how it went down. Note: these are all her words. I did not speak. Also: ALL CAPS MEANS NOT WHISPERING.

nap

“HI, MOM! I GET IN BED! OH! LOOK! A BABY J!”

“COME ON, L!”

“Shhhhh. Baby sweeping.”

“I SEE PICTURES!”

“COW POOP!” (i truly have no idea, but they were looking at photos on my camera. weird.)

“Shhhhh. Baby sweeping.”

“MY BLANKET! I NEED THE BLANKET!” (yanking on the blanket all around us)

“STOP IT! STOP IT L!” (“whispering” to her brother)

“MY TURN!” (grabbing for the phone)

“Shhhh. Baby sweeping.”

“ONE. TWO. FWEE!” (as she stands on the bedside table, contemplating a leap)

“HI MOM! THAT’S MY MOM!”

(i open my eyes and grin)

“Shhhh. Baby sweeping.” (pointing her finger accusingly at me)

As if.

Fall Favorites

Years ago (well, only about 5 years ago, but with blogging that is YEARS ago), before everything had to be Pinterest Perfect (gag), I compiled a loooong list of Apple Recipes and Pumpkin Recipes for your fall enjoyment. So fun!  I can’t keep up with the Pinterest Pretty, and editing photos just isn’t my thing right now, but I do love me some fall apple and pumpkin recipes! Here are some of our favorites for those of you who might not have seen them before. Happy baking!

Better Than Pumpkin Pie Cake

Better Than Pumpkin Pie Cake ~ It really is!

Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins ~ My kids’ favorite. We make these all year!

Apple-Crisp-Done

Apple Crisp ~ The best. Tonight I ate mine with a toddler spoon because the other spoons were in the dishwasher. No shame.

Caramel Apple Pizza with a Peanut Butter Cookie Crust from AmysFinerThings.com

Caramel Apple Pizza with a Peanut Butter Cookie Crust ~ Not for the feint of heart. Rich, delicious, and pretty, but make it to share!

What favorites do you bust out this time of year? Also, do you pin recipes on Pinterest? Do you actually MAKE what you pin?

Resourceful. Strong. Determined.

"At least she's resourceful.  And strong. And determined." he said, a smile creeping in. "How did she get the lid open? Are you sure she drug it across the floor?" I don't know, and Yes! Yes, she did! This is what we walked in on an hour … [Keep reading…]

This will sound completely ridiculous to some of you, but one of my biggest worries about having another baby when we found out we were pregnant last fall was that I knew life was only going to get busier because our oldest is now in junior high. In … [Keep reading…]

One Now, One Later

pot pie

I love to cook. Love to bake. If I had no other responsibilities, you'd likely find me in the kitchen. And I need to be in the kitchen, what with trying to feed all these people every day, but I also need to be elsewhere sometimes (says the dirt on … [Keep reading…]

Don’t Refuse the Sleep

nap1

Denying needed sleep rarely turns out well, whether you're a toddler with a new big girl bed or a 39 year old seasoned mama of six enjoying the late night quiet a little too much. Miss 2 refused her nap on Sunday. This is how I found her later … [Keep reading…]

Yes. I’m Tired.

I met a new friend tonight. I don't know Lindsay, but she shares my mama heart. And I thank my good friend Jen for introducing us on Facebook. I knew that crazy FB was good for something! I think people are tired of being told that new medicines and … [Keep reading…]
