Yehoshua loves to help me in the kitchen! Today we made granola. Our morning started our rather hectic.
For one thing, we went walking later than usual, and so it was getting really hot out by the time we got back. It seemed like "everyone" was hungry (and with a nursing baby, it can be a challenge to feed "everyone" at once!) and "everyone" needed a diaper change (actually only 2 people ;D) and "everyone" was getting grumpy from being hungry, hot, and stressed out (really probably just me!).
But, we made it through the morning, despite a fussy (gassy, maybe?) baby and all the "help" (i.e. dropping crumbs on the floor and getting into trouble) provided by a two-year-old. ;) And our granola turned out just fine.
Of course, just moments after making granola (we had been out of it and were missing having it for breakfast!) we discovered that our milk had all gone sour. :D
The afternoon continued, thankfully a little less-eventfully than our morning was, and by bedtime everything was running smoothly again. :)
Yehoshua did get into a bit of mischief by trying to fill his sippy cup from the water dispenser by himself. He's not allowed to do that, because he can't always get it turned off in time. This was no exception, unfortunately.
We heard him calling, "Dada, Mama, water!" When we asked where the water was, he took us to the kitchen and showed us a big puddle on the linoleum.
Joshua said, "Yehoshua! You aren't supposed to turn on the water!" I said, "Did you run into a little problem here, Yehoshua?" and Yehoshua said, "Yeah!" in the CUTEST little voice and we started cracking up. Then we got him a huge bath towel and made him wipe up the water. :)
But now it's late, and I must head off to bed... Good night!
