Easier Said than Done!

I made some yummy peppermint brownies the other night. I don't know why I did it, because I have no self control when they are in the house. I told Jess that he had to eat what he wanted last night because I was throwing the rest out. This morning, T. Jay asked me if he could have a brownie. I told him that we didn't have them anymore. He asked me why and I told him that I couldn't stop myself from eating them and I kept getting a tummy ache from eating too much so I threw them away. He said, "ya know Mom, eating one a day isn't going to make your tummy hurt."
I am such a hypocrite! :) I only allow my kids to eat one treat each day, if that, I make them eat lots of veggies and drink enough water and talk to them about foods that are healthy. Now to make myself do as I say and not as I do...

loose tooth

T Jay has had a loose tooth for over a month. I told him that we needed to pull it out because I was afraid he might swallow or choke on it. His adult tooth is already nearly in behind this poor cliff hanger of a tooth. He was hysterical at the idea of me pulling it out, but fine with doing it himself. After about 9 tries and the occasional "it'll probably take 3 more tries" he pulled it out! He was very pleased with himself and eager to put the whole Tooth Fairy thing into action!
He has been walking around all morning with his loot in hand. He took me up to his pillow to show me that it was indeed empty under his pillow. I said, "boy the Tooth Fairy must be pretty sneaky." And T Jay said, "or she probably has a magic wand so that she doesn't wake the kids up." Yep, your probably right T. Jay. That makes much more sense!

Speed Racer

Summer's new bike from Kelli Melin on Vimeo.
Summer got a new bike this weekend, so my kitchen turned into a race track! Just as an FYI, my kitchen counters always seem to get cluttered on Saturday evening and Sunday. A trip to Sam's club didn't help any. I have cleared them off, just not in time for this impromptu video. I am sure Jess didn't even noticed he was archiving our clutter. Oh well, I'm caught! What can I say!!!
