This morning I ate this for breakfast:
Real buttermilk pancakes. The 1yo seems to be done nursing so I am eating dairy again! Thanks to her daddy’s brilliant strategy, she’s been taking a drink of water at night when she wakes up instead of nursing. (She doesn’t really want the water at first, but once she feels a few drops she takes a long drink and then lays back down.) Hopefully the waking up will soon subside, too, but for now I am grateful to be able to eat dairy again. :) I have really enjoyed nursing my five babies but after eight years of being pregnant and/or nursing, I’m grateful to be entering a new phase in life!
We are planning to get a dog at some point after we move. We have never owned a dog before, and aren’t really sure what we are going to get. We want something that’s good with kids (duh) but one that has some good watchdog abilities, too. I’ve heard that lots of people have lots of opinions on dogs, so I’d love to hear your thoughts (click here) as long as you realize that whatever we get can’t possibly please everyone, haha. :) I’d especially like to hear about shelter dogs – while I like the idea of getting a dog from a shelter, I’m a little leary of not knowing the background of a dog when it’s going to be around five kids. Oh, and whatever dog we get will have to be relatively short-haired – that is a non-negotiable at this point!
A couple of my kids have been wearing shoes without socks and the smell is starting to make that obvious. Yesterday, I told the 5yo to take her shoes off and she protested, saying, “but my feet smell like elephants!” (We had just been to the zoo so the scent was fresh in her memory.) Well, she did have a point!
Here are seven recipes that use eggs! (For more ideas on how to use eggs, check out last year’s What To Make With What’s On Sale post on the same topic.)
