Quick find some wood!

We need some wood to knock on around here! Believe it or not there really hasn't been much of a dinner time fight for about a week now. Hmmmm makes me wonder what the children are plotting as their next way of sending their parents to the looney bin! But hey for now I'm not complaining, just enjoying the nice dinner time atmosphere that happin' around our house.  And just for fun here's a recipe I put together for home-made salsa.  I got an entire case of tomatoes and we had a big bag of chips from Costco, sound like salsa to me!

Whadda's Salsa
10 tomatoes - skins removed, seeded and chopped.
1tbs chopped garlic
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 c. cilantro chopped
1 tbs. cumin
salt & pepper
Mix ingredients together and let sit over night. I like to put mine in the blender for a smoother texture, if you like chunky style salsa you're good to go! Enjoy and let me know how you like it.

It's Wednesday....

Wednesday at our house is always some what of a surprise.  You just never know how the day/evening is going to go.  Usually the 2 little ones are pretty tired, mom and dad are tired and the oldest could go either way. Oh, and just for fun, we are started on our rounds of spring colds/allergies/sinus infections & general gunk.  Que fun. 

An update on last nite's dinner with two REALLY tired kids... it actually went well all things considering.  Of course it helps when you have BLT's for dinner, I mean really who doesn't like BLT's.  Off to deal with my cold and whatever sicknesses/plagues the children have brought home.  Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Miracles do happen! Even at dinner time!

Well believe it or not last night's dinner was actually peaceful!  Everyone ate their dinner, ate without complaining and some even had seconds and thirds!  Nothin' like home-made spaghetti sauce to ensure a peaceful dinner process.  But alas like ying and yang as goes the parenting saga.  After dinner comes the bedtime process, and while it did go rather smoothly, it was late.  Late as in 9pm for the 3 year old, yeah that's good parenting, oh and btw he had to get up at 6:15 to go to pre-school. Yes he was a bit of a beast this morning.  And then there is the 6 yr. old who was put to bed at her regular time but then decided she would close her door and turn on the T.V. and not go to sleep until she was discovered about 9:30. Yeah..... so what does this mean.... I'm sure this evening's dinner will go just swimmingly with 2 of the 3 kids way too tired!  Please tell this also happens at your house? if not, please just lie to me!  Have a wonderful Tuesday and may all your dinner time's go peacefully!

Welcome to my little piece of the earth.  Prepare yourself.  Over the course of this blog I will attempt to make sense of the journey known as parenting. Wish me luck. I will need it.
