Yesterday was a day of firsts for Sadie.
First time eating chocolate.
First time eating macaroni and cheese.
First time eating cheerios.
Obviously, I need to keep up with my older kids' spills better. And I haven't taught them as well as I thought I had because there was perfectly good chocolate that had been wasted on the floor. If you're going to follow the five second rule, follow it by saving chocolate.
She also had her first blood. She cut her finger on my friend's vent, and I didn't notice it until it had been bleeding a minute or two. There was blood everywhere! She did not like her band-aid and kept trying to take it off. Then she kept trying to eat it.
Also, a good way to get free daycare for seven hours: Have your four-year-old child tell your neighbor that you went to a town two hours away and that the seven-year-old brother is in charge. It worked for my neighbor, and it can work for you, too! (I have had kids here all day, and they have eaten all my food and made a huge mess, but at least they were safe...)
