Strange Eats...

I made & veggie tofu stir fry for dinner. My son only wanted plain tofu.

I cubed some tofu for him and toasted it in the oven.

My son also asked for some "messketti" (spaghetti). I had some leftover so I heated it up for him. Then, my son requested a taco shell. I dug one out of the freezer and heated it up as well.

I placed everything on his plate. My son said he was going to make a taco and proceeded to put the spaghetti in the shell and topped it with the tofu.

He ate it all! And all this time I thought he was such a picky eater!

we have to fill ourselves with love.

but a fulfilling of who we are and what we want."

"In a houseful of 'kids' and pets, you can start out having a bad day, but you keep getting detoured." ~Robert Brault

How true-if we choose not to let ourselves get angry &/or frustrated-so many situations within the family unit can simply be silly and send us in another direction.

I guess the quote can also be interpreted to mean that are day is full of so many duties we don't have time to have a bad day.

I think I'm going to try and remember to see the sillier side of life...

Sock Monsters & how to make them!!!

My friend Jill in California sent this link to me. I think these lil' sock monsters are great handmade silliness! It looks a bit complicated, but I've been informed otherwise. I can't wait to create some with my kiddos!
