Mommy and Me Monday | Toddler Foods Ep. 2

And Another week has gone and with it August! This past week was pretty typical around here. We hit up the gym every day and the kids had a BLAST in the bouncy house. We also went out to eat a couple times so I’m going to share a few pictures of our toddler foods when eating out methods! And there are some funny faces being made on a regular basis that are just too good not to share!

We went to our favorite taco store last week on Tuesday to celebrate Auntie’s birthday – Even though she isn’t here with us! Its her favorite place to eat at our house! I usually get nachos and so we have lots of chips – but the kids aren’t huge chips fans because they are so hard. The guy sat this place are super accommodating to toddler foods and so we order a plate of rice, a plate of beans, and some flour tortillas. They bring us plastic spoons and the kids ate almost all of the food! You can see their plates here and most of it was gone when we left! Serious win!

We also went to 5 guys burgers this week and the kids split a little hamburger. They both ate their half a burger plus a good bit of yummy fries! I realize it is peanut friendly so not great for everyone – but they definitely enjoyed it and Hannah asked for more after it was all gone!

We also get Jersey Mikes once a month – I get turkey on white bread and they both eat 1/2 of the kids sandwich (they split one).

We had some super fun play time and some good brother & sister play time. these moments make my heart so happy to see them having such fun with each other. Yes they fight at times. Yes Teddy actually but Hannah this week. But they have fun playing cars, coloring, and always with our Lillebaby carrier!

Mommy and Me Monday | The beginning Ep. 1!

This past week I read two articles about how one person blogs so she can have memories for her kids and another was someone who was very sick and wanted to know what sorts of things she should write in letters to her children. This really really struck me that I want to at least try to record a few things for my kids about what happened when they were little.

Last Sunday we spent a lot of time working in our yard. Our new rental had a pretty nasty yard with a ton of weeds and a garden box – full of mostly dead plants. We finally got everything dead pulled out. Then we bought some new potting soil and planted some wildflowers and sunflowers – a favorite of Hannah! We also used some egg crates to try and start some seeds for spinach and zucchini! I tend to have a black thumb but here’s hoping we can get something to grow!!

Then our week kinda flipped. I woke up Monday very sick with a stomach bug. Like I couldn’t get out of bed until almost noon! Thankfully hubby was able to stay home and watch the kids. They had a blast playing legos and matchbox cars! But then this bug went through the house. We had a good and easy Tuesday and Wednesday so I could recover. Wednesday evening Teddy decided was the perfect time to get sick. So long night there. We took it easy Thursday. Friday on the way home from the gym Hannah started feeling bad and poor girl got sick during her nap.

Mommy and me - surviving a week of the stomach bug!

Floor cuddles (I have shorts on don’t worry!) on a towel with our bowl nearby…

The stomach bug is no joke. My essentials this week were the following: Gatorade, bread, crackers, cheerios, Diaper sprayer & SprayPal , shout stain remover, and Norwex. My diaper sprayer and spraypal were awesome for cleaning off all the blankets, sheets, clothes, animals that became casualties of this bug! My shout was to try and keep everything clean!! and my Norwex was to first clean everything up ( they hold so much more and clean up better than any number of paper towels) and then since they are antibacterial I used them to clean my whole house!

This may not be the happiest Mommy  and Me Monday but hey we got through a week of the stomach bug so that’s a win in my book!

Sadly my dear hubby got the bug Saturday so we had a low key weekend with lots of downtime and cleaning. Now we are all feeling better so its time to ramp up for a new week! Do you have anything special planned this week?
