There are just too many things that I could write about today. I had quite a bad afternoon yesterday - it was the kind where I had to pick between "Do I burn the house down" or "Do I let my two year old get hit by a car?"
I had both children running outside in opposite directions at the precise moment I really needed to be paying attention to my stove top. I scooped my two year old out of the driveway ( he was aiming for the street) and ran like a mad woman back into the kitchen. The air was smoky, but nothing had actually burned. The six year old was too far away for me to hail back towards home, but he is a traffic savy kid unlike his younger brother. What I wouldn't give for a fence!
By the time dinner was finally finished, both kids were crying for different reasons. Mama was also losing her cool. A brief thunderstorm visited the neighborhood and then vanished before dinner was completed. Thank Goodness the hubby saved the day by managing both of our children an hour later. I was off for a haircut and a big bottle of wine!
The A's had pan fried salmon patties with tossed asparagus (olive oil, salt and lemon juice.) The O's had pork sandwiches (AAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ugh!) Dad cooked for the O's. I did smile a little bit though, as my six year old asked me ,"Where are the healthy buns?" (Ezekiel). Take care everyone.
