As I type this it is 8:10pm on Wednesday night. I don’t know if you know this, but I think hell hath frozen over. Here’s why. Andy asked to go to bed at 7pm. 7pm! And HE asked. I didn’t have to chase him and read fifteen hundred stories. Then stand at the door counting down from 30 and then closing the door to him whining. Yep, so that’s why hell has for sure frozen over.
Reason number two hell has frozen over is that, on day three of potty training, we have had 1 small minor accident Tuesday and other than that, he has peed and pooped on the toilet like a champ. I may or may not have cried after his first poop. He was just so proud! But! We have yet to leave the house sooooo potty training has yet to really be tested.
Like I said, hell, frozen over!
As a slightly seasoned parent, there are these small moments that occur in which you stop yourself from feeling that sense of accomplishment because you know you will pay for it later. Like, Andy will either wake up right as I lay down to go to sleep or he will wake up at 6am. I know there is a balance. Right now I am going to push that out of my head for a moment and just enjoy this rare moment of overlapping quiet from both kids while the sun is still out, none the less!
I would pop a bottle of champs but I have none and I am creeping around here like a mouse because I don’t want to stir the pot or make any noise at all to wake the babes. So I think it is time for my newest obsession, babka toast. I basically made this recipe for babka, but instead of pimento cheese I used 3/4 cup of Nutella. Babka is normally the best for french toast but forget all that. This is way less mess and way easier!
I used strawberries macerated in orange bitters, lemon juice, and sugar. After an hour they are good for topping sweet toasts like this or even ice cream or yogurt. Give it a try, but keep it down.
You wake ’em, you take ’em!
