This was definitely a day that will go down in the History books for the BEST DAY EVER! Declan has shown so much excitement for these events and it is such a FUN way to teach the calendar to early elementary school kids.
Today we had our own version of an Elf breakfast. If you are one of the lone rangers on this planet that has not seen the best (Christmas) movie on earth, I suggest you get to it. Anyways. We had a breakfast full of spaghetti, swedish fish, crushed peppermints, Now & Laters and syrup. Since Declan usually lives off of carbs and sugar, I believe that he is actually an elf. No judgement, he is growing and and thriving and you only live once right? Um, yeah. Rylee tried some, and enjoyed it but didn’t eat a full bowl like Declan did. Noah is smart enough to know better.
For dinner, we had my favorite lazy meal. Spaghetti, Raw Spinach, Garbanzo beans, chopped pepperoni, fresh herbs, olive oil, salt and pepper. ( Leave out pepperoni for a great meatless Monday meal). I didn’t get a photo, but I will have to next time. It’s quick , easy and everyone seems to like it.
Disclaimer: Noah called this carb loading and that’s okay. Declan never stops moving. Also, he brushed his teeth. This was important. SUGAR overload. It is worth the day of sugar and carbs for all of the excitement and all of the memories.
