Today for breakfast I had a banana-peach-strawberry-kale smoothie. It was not as good as last time’s (though still okay). That might have been because I gave Rowan part of the fruit base before I tainted it with kale and turned it green. Annoyingly though, she didn’t drink much of hers but left it out on her little table, where Nova found it and a paintbrush and starting painting the table and assorted toys with banana-peach-strawberry smoothie.
Nova overall though was very sweet. She’s been a total pill for the last week, fighting some cold and frankly I was getting sick of being the monkey tree for my little monkey. I love her, but man, a week of non-stop whining and clinging. . . this is why I decided long ago that there would only be a few kids in my future (as opposed to 5 or 6) But tonight, I gave Nova a little bowl of blueberries and she took her bowl to Rowan’s little plastic mermaid salon and ate them while talking to herself in babytalk in the mirror. Cute.
I did grocery shopping this weekend because though Leif can get everything on the list, this time there were some specific items I was looking for. I hit the ethnic aisle pretty hard and I love all the weird stuff. Like Thai Sweet Rice, what it that? How different is that from Jasmine rice? I realized there is still a lot of food out there that I haven’t tried. Long term, that just won’t do. I am curious, I need to know these things.
And now I must go.
