1. Go to Bali
2. Find a cool bar
3. Assume cool relaxed pose.
4. Listen to your daughter say... “mum your bun looks a bit weird, don’t post this anywhere.” This seems to be my life. 🤔😏 #penisbun#strikesagain
This child will be the death of me...... Had a super quick shower this morning while she was eating breakfast & came out to find she had poured an entire bottle of maple syrup (that shit ain’t cheap!) into her cereal bowl & all over the table & had also managed to open a pot of my blistex which was all over her hands & face & through her hair. Anyone want a 2.5 year old?? Going cheap! 😳😫😖 FML!!!!! #hurricanematilda#strikesagain#mumlife#nowonderimgrey
Our sweet Emi-G has a double ear infection. So, that’s been fun.
To top it off, tonight, while making dinner, Cohen came over and asked me if he could have a piece of gum (with said gum in his hand). I said no, obviously, because I was in the middle of making dinner. He proceeded to tell me that he could, then unwrapped the gum and brought it up to his mouth, at which point I firmly told him “No, you may NOT have gum. And now you have to throw it away.” He took the gum and put it in the trashcan then threw himself on the floor, like any dignified toddler would. After a few seconds of protesting he stood up, looked me dead in the eye, and yelled, “I don’t love you, stupid person!” And stormed off.
I wanted to be mad but I honestly had to stifle a laugh because the drama of it all was just too much.
To add to that, he came back into the dining room and started to crawl on top of our trash can. I told him to get down so he wouldn’t get hurt. Of course, on his way down, he hit his hip. Hysterics ensued.
We had a brief conversation about safety and I also tried to tie in a lesson about not saying things we don’t mean just because we are frustrated but to say “I’m frustrated” instead. And then I was met with this gem: “Mom, you’re just a girl and you can’t learn.” Baffled, I retorted, “Bud, everyone can learn!” And was coldly met with, “Not ladies.” So, there you have it, friends. My day in a nutshell: Fussy, crying, clingy baby and a little boy who thinks I’m too dumb to learn. 🙃 *Note: This picture has literally NOTHING to do with this story or my day, but it stands as Exhibit A for why I’m in over my head with that attitude of his. I mean look how cute.
In case you’re not yet tired of hearing about buffalo cauliflower’s amazingness, here’s a tip for those leftovers: VEGGIE. SCRAMBLE. With eggs & yesterday’s buffalo cauliflower 🍳🥦🥕YASSSS! Use whatever you have on hand. I sautéed a mix of veggies first, including my leftover spicy cauliflower, kale, broccoli, zucchini, carrots, green onion, after 5 minutes I added 3 scrambled eggs. When everything was cooked, a few minutes later, I piled the deliciousness onto my fave almond flour tortillas @sietefoods topped w/ avocado, cilantro, pumpkin seeds, and, of course, more buffalo sauce. This was SO ridiculously good & filling that it doubled as lunch 😍
If you haven’t tried these yet, make em ASAP and keep the leftovers for a breakfast scramble the following morning. Two meals in one 🌮❤️🌮❤️🌮 happy dance!
