Eating more veggies. Intentionally.

Summer break is upon us. Girls are home with a shared nanny. And it seems, they are always in the fridge. Starving and searching for food. My oldest has a huge aversion to green things. My battle has begun. She does like cucumbers and celery. So I bought a celery stalk and cut it up in "ready to eat" bites. And she loves chocolate. Nutella and peanut butter with cucumbers or celery? Yup. Now it all sits in the fridge ready to grab for a car ride or quick snack.

Play date eggs

The girls had some friends over the other day and we dyed a dozen Easter eggs. Cheap and fun. Before dying the eggs, I had them color and write on the eggs with crayons. We also dipped some of them in blue cupcake sprinkles.
