Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well.
Some mornings are very hectic in my household even when I try to have things laid out already. Time is a sneaky little monster that jumps out horribly at you when you’re trying to put shoes on, zip up sweaters, wrap scarves around, and place hats on two little girls with ants in their pants. Oh, and don’t forget bundling yourself up. Today was a good day. I was able to leave the house on time and actually walk my daughter to school instead of jogging/running with her there before they
slam close the doors. She doesn’t mind the fast pace though because in her case she BOUNCES her way to school with excitement practically every day. My kid doesn’t do walking, unless there’s three feet of snow in which then she wants to drag her feet and bask in the glory of snow heaven. Other than that, it’s all running everywhere.
This morning my daughter was EXTRA excited because they were going to dye eggs in her classroom. Her teacher asked that the kids bring in two hard-boiled eggs and I was brainstorming yesterday night on how I was going to transport these eggs without them cracking in her bag. I thought, “Why not use the egg carton itself?” so I cut off one of the ends of the styrofoam carton and placed the eggs like this:
Then I put it into a food storage container that fit perfectly and off to school she went with her eggs safely in her backpack. I don’t really remember if I ever dyed Easter eggs with my mom or even in school, but this year we’re definitely going to be dyeing some eggs come Easter week-end. I just have to remember to be patient and have fun, no matter what messes occur. Let the cracked eggs and spilled paint fall where they may. That’s what brooms and paper towels are made for, but just in case I will repeat silently this little mantra, “Just let go and make sweet memories. That’s all that matters!”
Today is the start of Spring so lets welcome it with open arms even if we’re still bundled up over here in Brooklyn.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
