Does anyone else’s kids scream while angrily do math problems while on the treadmill? No? Just mine? Oh, Elli Lou McGoo! ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Can’t relate to being on the treadmill but I do scream and get angry while doing math problems

Elli has been struggling (and screaming) so much lately that it is hard to keep everyone in the house from melting down and even harder to keep everyone safe. I am so happy to say that Elli had a mostly good day. As a reward she got a new Pez dispenser and later in the day got to make “recipe” (as Elli calls it) of brownies. She did not want to wait for me to finish dinner to help her. I walked in to find that Elli made her brownies ALL by herself!!! She did a great job following the directions! Great job Elli Lou McGoo!!!

(Sadly as I am writing this Elli is now screaming at the top of her lungs. We will try again tomorrow.)

So proud of Charlie for trying 2 new foods. He is not a fruit fan. Today he ate a strawberry... not a huge fan but he ate it. He also ate about 10 raspberries and loved them! The best part is that he picked them himself from our garden and ate them. Him helping me in the garden is paying off. ❤️🍓 ... See MoreSee Less

The kittens love Tedi’s temporary pottery studio (AKA corner of the living room). They are taking a break while Tedi throws. ❤️🎨 ... See MoreSee Less

Tedi Marie is the BEST big sister! A few years ago she painted a “Little Mermaid” picture for Madicyn. Sadly, Elli got mad and shredded it. Instead of being upset, Tedi jumped in and made Mads a new painting in no time. So talented! ❤️🎨 ... See MoreSee Less
