My 8 year old daughter told me one day this week that she got to "eat my lunch in alphabetical order". I looked at her confused. She explained, "I ate the carrots first, then pizza, then strawberries, then sugar cookie, and water. Alphabetical order!" She was very thankful that I'd packed her a lunch conducive to the ABC order!
I walked in on this happy little scene my 5 year old had set up to read to all her little stuffed friends:
Every Friday I do a "special snack" for the kids after school. The rest of the week is fruit or granola bars or whatever happens to be around, but on Fridays I plan something a bit special that I know the kids will love. Last week I was too busy to make anything but did plan ahead enough to grab three bags of popcorn while I was at Trader Joe's, one regular, one cheese, and one kettle corn. I set up a "Popcorn Bar" for the kids and they LOVED it! So easy!
In a throw-back to the 1980s, the 10 year old has gotten into the Rubix cute lately. My husband was quite the Rubix cube expert in his time and has taught the 10 year old some of his tricks to solving the Rubix cube. Then this week, a 2nd Rubix cube arrived in the mail. My husband ordered a 2nd one so that he and the 10 year old can have Rubix cube races. Here's one that happened after the 10 year old's swim practice tonight:
I love the serious face on my son! My husband won, solving it first in about 5 minutes, but I give the 10 year old just another month or so before he'll be beating his dad!
Happy Friday, Friends! Try eating a meal in alphabetical order this weekend!
