Things I learned today….
with a smattering of things I already knew, but had forgotten:
1.) Children are much more enjoyable when their body temperatures are below 104°
2.)When blessed with the rare “both children napping at the same time” scenario, using the sacred silent hour to steam, purée, chop and prep veggies and other recipe items providing easy access for the week’s mealtimes is much more invigorating than taking a nap yourself. No matter how loudly your bed screams for you after only three hours of sleep the night prior.
3.) Scooping out the yolks of hard-boiled eggs is much easier with a spoon than a knife.
4.) Removing the side from your two and a half year old’s crib, converting it into a Daybed before there are ANY signs of the child physically outgrowing it or putting himself in danger by attempting to climb out is STUPID. Thank heavens for the simplicity of the Allen Wrench. Without it, rewinding time and pretending this stupidity never occurred would not have been so quick and painless.
5.) Blood tests on both children show that lead levels are as low as they can be. (For those of you who have lost sleep since last Thursday’s post over my children’s possible lead poisoning)
All is well here in the Motherfog household…
