well...there goes the neighborhood
david is the best papa in the world. no really.
my children are my greatest teachers. for example, every morning augustine runs downstairs and throws back the blinds on the sliding glass door and half announces half asks nice day?!. it could be a blowing gale outside, spitting rain, the whole nine yards and that boy still proclaims its a nice day outside. what an optimist i am raising! sometimes he asks me if i think it is a nice day and i always say the same thing it is a nice day because we are together. some mornings that is all i can muster, especially after nights when olive wakes up a million times, or she wakes up and doesn't want to settle back down so she ends up rolling all over the bed hitting me repeatedly (and of course david has the audacity (haha) to sleep through all of this.
oh and i love it that meijers has organics now. i went there last night and got organic apples, teddy grahams (3 boxes on clearance that were actually much cheaper than the name brand type), soy milk, 2% milk, yogurt, peanut butter, mac & cheese, and potatoes. im getting more strict about our organic intake, especially the "dirty dozen" (as described by this great book im obsessed with reading called to buy or not to buy organic. anyways the foods the book says not to eat EVER unless they are organic - in order of concentration of pesticides -
red/green bell peppers
grapes (esp from chile, though domestic non-organic grapes are ok)
and also the "clean fifteen" which means basically don't bother buying these organic
watermelon (domestically grown)
