It’s funny the curve ball life can throw at you when you least expect it, right? Saturday’s plan after L’s b-ball practice was to pick up some Bull Dogs for lunch, L was off to a play with Grammie, and B would blissfully nap while I got to spend some good time in my kitchen working on chili.
Instead B decided to run full speed towards a glass door, trip, and fall into it head first. I was no more than 3 feet away from him. I heard the impact and thought, oh man, we either are going to be incredibly lucky or this is going to be reeeeeeally bad. One look at B confirmed it was definitely the latter.
It’s funny what happens when your baby gets hurt, right? You almost freeze. Luckily a friend (who happens to have 3 boys, I know!) had the brains to get a first aid kit, get some gauze out, and suggest we head to the ER. Duh.
So off we went! 2 hours and 7 stitches later were home. I got a long cuddle time in with my exhausted toddler which I would not have traded for the world, let alone to make chili. Once he was up we confirmed basic things (B, please wave – B can you give high five – B say ‘mama’ – B do you want a cookie?). All was good so we headed out for a Red Mango treat. Next up will be convincing M that B needs a chocolate lab, to be named Stitch.
Alright our line up for the week! It’s got a rather ‘around the world’ feel – not sure why, just sort of worked out that way.
I have a confession to make. I am 100% addicted to Heinen’s garlicky grilled shrimp. My dear friend calls them ‘death row’ shrimp (i.e. they would be one of your last meals) and she could not be more accurate. My new fav recipe is to roast up cherry tomatoes drizzled with evoo in the oven (425 degrees for 10-15 minutes) and toss them together with the shrimp and some angel hair pasta. HEAVENLY.
Wednesday will be chickety china some chinese chicken. Do you remember that song? Anyone…..?
Tostadas sounds great for Thursday night – ole!
Friday night I’m outta here for a girls night, and L is in the city with Aunt Becky & Uncle Tyler! M and B? You’re on your own.
That’s our meal plan for this week – what are you cooking? I’d love to hear!
