So far it’s been a great day! I don’t usually do a middle-of-the-day post but I have a minute (just) and I realized I have a bit of cute-picture buildup on my camera, so I figure its a good time to divulge what I have:)
I went to the grocery store this morning, and saved $54.00! I’m not usually a big fan of Winn Dixie but they had basically every kind of meat on buy one get one free, so I got all kinds of chicken, pork chops, even fish and chicken nuggets, basically half price. I really need to work on my grocery shopping skills. I try so hard to only buy the cheapest variety of everything, but somehow I still end up spending over 100 a week on groceries. This week I stretched our food out to 9 days, and next week, (and maybe the week after), we won’t have to buy any meat, so I think I did well!
The kids are cracking me up today. Since I went grocery shopping this morning and replenished our banana stash, it was a major treat at lunch for them. Usually I get a variety of fresh and canned fruit- the beginning of the week, they get a lot of fresh stuff, the end of the week is a lot more canned, for obvious reason. So after about 4 days of no bananas- Ben was ecstatic to see them at lunch. He started clapping and laughing and signing “more”.. my bananaholic boy!
I decided to try some coloring again today.. the kids kept climbing into the big chairs, so I let them sit there for a few minutes and they did well sitting… but not coloring. They still really like eating the crayons. (Thank God they are non-toxic!) Can’t wait to try finger painting!
Uh-oh, I hear babies. naptime=over:(
