The other day I found Colin and Caleb playing "Star Trek." Colin was speaking in Klingon. And it actually sounded like Klingon.
It has probably been over a month since Benjamin has eaten a vegetable. I have not found one single way to get him to eat one. On my mother-in-law's suggestion, I found one of those new fruit fusion juices that also have vegetables in them. Benjamin LOVES his new juice. He drank two cups today. That's 4 servings of fruit, 2 servings of vegetables, and 54 grams of sugar. Okay, so it's not a permanent solution, but it works for now.
I need to start being VERY diligent in brushing Benjamin's teeth now.
Caleb is entering a defiant stage. Today he threw a piece of wood at a moving car. When I scolded him, he took off his sandal and threw it at another car. When I lost it again, he threw the other shoe. I made him walk home barefoot.
Crackdown tonight at Family Home Evening. I called a family council to put an end to the endless clutter around here. When the boys wake up tomorrow, they will only have one small box of toys in the play room. If they can play with and tidy up one box, they will get another the next day. They are aware of the plan, and on board. I really hope it works.
I did find a beautiful, girly, pink and green shirt that EXACTLY matches my new blog design. I love it.
I also found a pomegranate in the grocery store last week. I discovered them last fall, on the very last week they were in stock. Finally, the long wait is over and they are back again!
We are eating vegetarian this week. More on that later. Day one was a resounding success. Day two, okay. Hopefully we'll have more successes than failures.
I was feeling particularly nostalgic this morning, in a whole host of different areas, and for no particular reason at all. It was a lovely feeling.
