I was talking to a friend the other night. She recently had her third child and was telling me how she’s finding things to be very hard. She mentioned that she feels stressed that nothing is getting done, she’s busy with the kids all day and it’s emotionally draining. This friend asked me how I do everything and how do I manage.

Keeping Track of Library Books

My kids really enjoy taking books from the library. We go every two weeks, usually on Fridays after school. We spend at least 30 minutes choosing books, coloring and playing with puzzles.

My Failed Attempt at Rice Krispies

On Thursday, I had planned to make watermelon rice krispies from  an idea I saw on Pinterest. I had this grand thinking that I wouldn’t use regular food coloring, because it has so much junk in it…. Instead, I found myself buying pomegranate juice and blueberry juice among others to create the colors I wanted. I was overly excited to see how the natural food coloring would work, so I decided to make a double recipe of rice krispies. I’m not sure why I was so…
