What a difference a week makes

March 20th, 2011

Nothing makes my household more lighthearted than the first real, true, honest to goodness spring weekend.  Windows open – check.  Short sleeves donned – check.  Playing outside – check.  First popsicles of the year – check.  Tessa’s little nose running like a sieve because she seems to have the notorious Tennessee allergies – check.

Sabrina taught Tessa to swing on her belly when Mommy was mean and refused to push any more after her arms fell asleep.

Even when swinging, she can’t stop talking/lecturing.

She who splits open green beans and eats the individual seeds before then eating each half of the bean by itself thereby making each bean last 2-3 minutes wolfed down her popsicle before I even returned with my camera.

Excuse her orange teeth.  Whatever coloring they used in these cheap popsicles dyed teeth, lips, arms, and hands for hours.  I need to make my own but they always end up like giant ice cubes instead of popsicles.

    Homemade popsicles are far less like ice cubes when you add gelatin to the juice.

    Glad to know my kiddo isn’t the only one that eats green beans that way…

    I’ve got the green bean picking and swinging lecturer, too! I didn’t expect the “Mom you’re so dumb I have to tell you how to do EVERYTHING!” phases until the teenaged years…
    Good luck on the homemade popsicles. Mine won’t eat them – or push up pops, “Because, Mommy, they melt and make me too messy!” sigh.

    Love their matching Dora shoes! Tessa is growing up too freaking fast and she is SO cute enjoying that popsicle!

    Like the gelatin tip. But, I too buy them. I do like the 100% juice ones. For whatever the reason, a popsicle makes Reese go over the top nuts! I am convinced it’s the dyes. The juice ones aren’t as bad, but still not good

    Jealous of the green grass and short sleeves. We had two days of warmth followed by three days of snow!!!!!!!

    Sabrina is going to make a wonderful wife and mother!!!
