Well, I hate to admit it, but after B went to work, something strange settled over our household. The kiddos have been fighting over toys, shows, food, drinks, pillows, shoes, who-touched-who, and have just been a bit surly. The little miss is having a particularly difficult time with B being gone during the day. She asks for him, and has had a few sad moments when I've told her he was at work. We all miss dad.
Even Stella has been a bit naughty and is back to her old antics of stealing the kids lunches...she wouldn't have dared with B around.
Thankfully, the week wasn't a complete bust...getting out of the house as much as possible seemed to do the trick. We had so much fun together, and the kiddos had me cracking up as usual:
To be frank, B has been wiped out too. We both crashed on the couch the other night downloaded an episode of '24' (we're just now watching them...we're lame) and made Chocolate-Peanut butter Fondue. It is nothing fancy, but oh-ma-goo-ness is it good! We just sort of dump and go and don't measure anything, but you really can't mess it up. These measurements are sort of a guess, but I think it's pretty close.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue
1/2 C Chocolate Chips (we use Ghirardelli 60% Bittersweet chocolate)
2 tablespoons of Peanut Butter (used Skippy natural)
place ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high at about 20 second intervals, stirring until ingredients are smooth (I did this a couple of times).
Use dippers such as pretzels, bananas, a spoon or a finger (clean preferably).
Have a great weekend friends!
