Food funnies

So, last night I cooked spaghetti for supper. When we were putting things away, of course, there were no disposable containers to put the food in. How could that be? I mean, there must be TWENTY lids in the cabinet just waiting for a match! But, now bowls could be found. So, in the ziplock bags supper went.

So, you are thinking, that doesn't look like spaghetti noodles... No, it isn't. I am the queen of improvising because I NEVER seem to have what I need to make a meal according to recipe. So, last night, I realized that we didn't have any spaghetti noodles, so here comes the macaroni. Kate was excited, however, because there was "macaroni and cheese with the spaghetti!"

While I was at the dentist the kids stayed at Mom and Dad's. I came to get them and left their house around 12:15pm. They both fell asleep in Bullet on the way home and I put them straight to bed - and they both went fast asleep. And, so did I.

While I was asleep I heard a noise in the kitchen. Well, I thought Kate was awake, but I didn't think much about it (truth be known my mouth hurt and I wasn't worried about it). Well, the noise continued, and I found her in the kitchen STRAPPED into Brooks' high chair. She was stuck - because she can't get the straps undone. I let her down and asked her to get back into bed and be quiet so I could rest a little longer.

Ok - fast forward to dinner. I'm talking to Mom on the phone, and she asks if the kids ate a good lunch - she bet they were probably hungry when they got home. What do you mean, Mom? I thought she had fed them! Well, she hadn't. Poor kids!!! Well, at this point, they are H-A-P-P-I-L-Y eating dinner and all's well that end's well,
right? :)

Why is it that our disposable containers and lids never seem to match up? Some day in my "spare time" I need to empty that drawer and resort. That will be a great project when Emma goes to college!

I just love it when someone is brave enough to admit what we all have done :) :)
