I know some of you really won’t admit it. It’s hard these days to admit you like junk food. With buzz words like organic, low sodium, vegan, telling people you like junk food is like saying you eat small children for breakfast. Well, don’t worry folks, I’m here to admit it for you. I like junk food. Umm…period. I also really like butter, but we can cover that some other time. Now I do like to balance the junk food indulgences with healthy things like wheat germ and flaxseed, but if you give me the option of one of those or a hostess cupcake, I’m taking the cupcake people!
One thing I’ve discovered in having a boy is that he eats an enormous amount of food throughout the day. He’ll have just finished breakfast 10 minutes before and he’ll be asking for a snack. It’s a little mind blowing that such large quantities of food can fit in that little body. So I am constantly thinking of ways to make his snacking healthier and more varied. One answer…homemade whole wheat cheese crackers.
Some of you may have thought that I forgot about this little blog. I didn’t forget, really. I just became pregnant. And exhausted. And I’m trying to entertain a 2 1/2 year old. Hopefully, I can get back on track. At least until the baby comes. For those of you that haven’t seen, here’s a picture of the little peanut at 12 weeks. I’m 18 weeks now and in 2 weeks I will find out if it’s a boy or girl. Fingers crossed for the girl. Seriously.
Today both K and I were feeling a little restless so we decided to do an outdoor art project. We decided to lay out a big strip of paper and he painted with his feet. And hands. Then he decided to paint his body and clothes as well. He had a lot of fun, even afterward rinsing off with the hose. Here’s some proof.
One thing I absolutely adore about our new house and property is that we have black raspberry bushes in the back. So K and I have been sneaking back there every few days hoping that some will be ripe for the picking! We found a good handful today and it was all I could do to grab a few before he gobbled them up.
