This is my weekend to do the food shopping for my family. Every two weeks, I go through all of my recipes and select a plethora of tasty meals to make for them. I put much thought into this and try really hard to make several new recipes a week.
I can no longer do this. There will be some changes around here......
On Tuesday, while I was grilling chicken and vegetables, Alex escaped from his spot on the couch where he and his sister were watching the Yo Gabba Gabba episode about sharing.
I found him upstairs, slathering Vaseline all over his legs and arms. Alex has very dry skin and we put special lotion on him everyday....apparently he needed more.
I chased him around the kitchen trying to remove as much Vaseline from his limbs as I could. Calvin came home in the middle of this and said he would handle it. I went back to preparing dinner.
I called them to the table and discovered that they had all been outside, under the deck in the dirt pile. Vaseline + Dirt = Mommy drinking Wine!

Yesterday, I am grilling dinner again. This time the kids are outside. They have lots of toys out there and generally play nicely. I am in and out of the house...grilling and cooking noodles on the stove.
I come out and don't find the kids. I find them under the deck in the dirt pile....but at least there isn't any Vaseline involved so I let them play there.
A few minutes later, I come outside to find this.
And then Mallory fell....
And this is why we will be having SpagettiO's for dinner from now on.
