Laugh It Off

I wanted to make lunch special for Sadie yesterday. I decided we would eat outside and made her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with the crusts taken off. Fancy, I know ­čśë

I set up her booster seat and gave her the sandwich. She took a bite and wanted a drink, so I ran inside to get her a cup of water. When I went inside, Niva stole the sandwich right off of Sadie’s plate.

I gave Sadie her drink and took Niva inside. While I took her inside, Sadie purposefully poured the water all over herself.┬áSo, that was our lunch experience yesterday, lol. If I’ve learned anything as a parent, it’s that laughter is so important.

Another laughable moment? Sadie slept in yesterday morning, so I vacuumed our basement stairs for the first time in months. Later on, Malcolm knocked a glass container of dog treats down the stairs. Glass and treats everywhere. So, the stairs were cleaned twice in one day. Laugh it off ­čÖé

Truth be told, yesterday was a great day.

Sadie and I did some cooking and baking together. We made double chocolate cookies and cooled them in our bedroom with the door shut to keep them safe from a certain someone, as usual.

I harvested a few green peppers and jalape├▒os from our garden and made stuffed peppers.

I usually use this recipe, but decided I was feeling spicy, so I added red pepper flakes, hot jalape├▒o and habanero jack cheese, and of course fresh jalape├▒os!

In the evening, my mom helped me teach the toddler class at church and I got to laugh some more. She has two pairs of the same flip flops and left for church in a rush.

She accidentally wore two left-footed flip flops!

When was the last time you had to laugh something off?
