today in a nutshell


*graham throwing fits because i don't understand what he wants - so sad! i'm trying, buddy!

*the house turning into a disaster zone AGAIN.

*attempting to bake salmon in parchment paper. i overcooked it. also, the salmon had no flavor...the vegetables underneath the salmon had way too much flavor...it was a big bust. that's what i get for trying to make something other than sloppy joes.

*it's too cold to play outside.


*going to library story time - toddler time for harrison at 10:15 and baby time for graham at 11:00. i love the children's programming that our local library offers! both the boys love it, too.

*finding new ways to get ground golden flax seed into the boys diet. this morning i put it in our pancake batter and this afternoon i substituted six tbsp. flax for two tbsp. butter in my oatmeal raisin cookie recipe. both turned out great!! next time i'm going to try to substitute even more flax and see how they turn out. (by the way, i've made chocolate chip cookies and substituted flax for the eggs and those, also, turned out great!)

*jer giving the boys a bath so i can start cleaning up the disaster zone.

*my new catch phase - "it's not time to play, it's time to obey."
