Joining in with Maxabella today on this sunny day making it feel easy to be Grateful.
1. Handcream - never in my life did imagine that I would need to wash my hands so much as a stay at home mother. It seems that there is always a toilet visit, food preparation, craft expedition, dirty face, chore, mess or dishes to be washed, which inevitably means hand washing for me at every turn. Hand cream is my saviour!
2. Cookies - Christmas cookies to be exact! Found a quick awesome festive cookie dough recipe* during the week. Made a double batch and took it along to Playgroup for all the kids to roll and cut and make cookies. We baked them at playgroup and the little people just loved having a little something for morning tea (i know mine did!)
3. My little translator - my 4 year old son has become quite the little translator for my 2 year old daughters growing vocabulary (some of which is perfect and new words are just a mumble jumble of vowels and consonants all in a bit of mess). Some of his helpful translations include;
"I waaa my shhhhh on" - "She wants her shoes on mum"
" Some shhhhooo" - She wants food (which sounds very much like she wants her shoes on!)
"baaaawaaaa" - "She can see a van."
"I ne baaaawaaa" - "She needs a band-aid (yes baawaa means both Van and Bandaid - see my confusion!)
"I wa do paaa do" - "She wants to play playdough"
It has gotten to the point some days when I listen to my daughter, shrug and turn to my son and say "What did she say?"
Happy grateful day! Do be sure to visit some other grateful bloggers too
