Lessons from the Week

Toddler Playground - A Go-To Favorite 

Sorry, we're going to be a little light on pictures this week. Noelle has kept me busy! Alex has been out of town since Tuesday (he gets home tomorrow, whew!) so I have been running around like crazy with the baby and dogs =)  I did learn some interesting things this week, though.

How to make cheese:
  1. Fill a sippy-cup with milk.
  2. Leave the sippy-cup in your car, in the sun, for three days.
  3. Voila! Feta!
When to double bag:

In an attempt to 'do my part' for the environment, I always tell the clerks at Trader Joe's to single-bag my groceries. Why use two bags when one will do, right? Well, one doesn't always cut it.

Unloading the car, I was holding: Noelle, a gallon of milk, two grocery bags and a small pie pumpkin (these make wonderful, homemade pumpkin pie!). For whatever reason, I felt doing an impression of a pack mule was better then two trips with the baby and the groceries.

Halfway to the house, one of the grocery bags ripped and crashed to the pavement.  'Crashed' being the important word here, since at the bottom of the grocery bag was my long-anticipated bottle of 2-buck-chuck chardonnay. It broke, and soaked all the groceries in it's immediate vicinity. Very disappointing.

Why baby swim classes exist:

When your baby is fussy and insists on being held 24/7, go to the pool. Noelle had a blast at the pool this weekend. We went both Saturday and Sunday! The best part? Since babies are 99% fat, they practically float and are super easy to carry around the pool =)

You know you had fun at the play ground when...: get home and find wood chips in the baby's diaper! At the park this evening, Noelle discovered that wood chips make a very good substitute for confetti. She threw her own little party on the playground!

  1. I totally feel your pain with the shattered groceries....and of course it was the wine. Not like you needed a glass of that to relax, you know? but hey, you didn't drop the baby. Major mom points.
