True confession

October 28, 2008 Jordana

Last night, I made a pan of peanut M&M tollhouse cookie bars, in the full expectation that I will be the only person in the household to eat them.

Then I got things off to a rousing start by eating two.

Ngaire woke up from her nap last Wednesday flushed and covered with a wrinkly rash. Turns out she had hives from … something. We were supposed to keep her off eggs, totally blew that (ever thought about how many foods contain eggs?), but haven’t had another such reaction. We’ll try her on peanut butter again in a few days. The only other thing I can think is that I had sprayed carpet freshener in their room, so maybe she was having a reaction to that …

Put this one under the heading of “Just When You Think You’ve Got This Parenting Thing Under Control.”

Ngaire has a new nickname for Liam: “Bud Squb.” Or sometimes “Buddy Squbby.” She is also partial to “Liam Squiam.” She can also sing most of “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

During the course of this post-writing, Liam has switched from putting blocks in the kitchen trash (thanks for the clean-up help!) to climbing on kitchen chairs to access stuff on the table. Ack. He is also not above (as it were) climbing on the actual table to reach desired objects.
