It’s always so funny how kids perceive things. Colton is almost four and a half and he came to be in the kitchen the other night and this how our conversation went:
Colton: Mommy, I want an octopus.
Colton: Mommy, I want to get on your computer and order money so I can go to the store and buy an octopus top put in my room.
Me: Oh, Colton if that’s only how it worked. Come on, let’s go tell Daddy.
I’m not sure why he thinks that you order money. LOL Maybe because we order a lot from Amazon and other online stores. We did talk to him later about how Daddy works very hard for our money and maybe it’s time he gets a very small allowance for doing chores. I plan on getting both him and Liam the chore chart from Melissa and Doug. It was just so funny that he wanted to order money.
:/ It’s true. I’ve been neglectful of my blog this past month. A lot of it has to do with I normally from my phone but it has gone miss and I really don’t want to pay the $100 fee to replace it. So, I’m holding out. I am hoping that in packing up the house we find it. I will post from my computer but I may not have pictures to go with my post but I do need to get a couple of them up that have been requested (very excited about that, by the way!).
Oh and if you didn’t know….today is my birthday!
So I just purchased a one month membership to Once A Month Mom. It’s a pretty neat website and I am excited about trying it out. You choose your type of menu from: traditional, whole foods, gluten & dairy free, paleo, diet, vegetarian, baby food, and mini. You can choose from two membership plans, monthly ($8) or yearly ($75). Right now I just have the monthly plan, if I really like I might get the yearly membership later.
With the membership you get recipes, editable recipe cards, instructions and labels. The whole idea is to take one day and do nothing but cook and freeze your meals so that they are ready when needed. It seems very well put together. I’m not 100% sold on keeping my membership mostly because I’m not real inpressed with vegetarian recipes given. I’ve looked at the meal plans and they look great. I deffinately suggest taking a look at past meal plans and see what you think.

Now, that I’ve had some time to study it I really think I could do this on my own. I have actually found a few other sites with the same comcepts. I may check them out as well. I probably wont be keeping my membership with OAMM. I already take the time to meal and think that I could easliy do this on my own. I will test some recipes out and find some out favorites that are freezer friendly and just keep those on hand. Something like this might be more helpful when the kids are older my schedule is a little more full. But for now, I have the time and ability to do it on my own. I love the concept though and know some that wouldnt be able to do this on their own.
I received my trial pack from The Honest Company. See my frist reactions to the box.
New hair color for this mama! I have always experimental with hair colors. I’ve just about every color except green.
My friend did it for me in my kitchen! LOL
Our funny kid moment for the day? Both boys were sitting at their trays watching cartoons during lunch. Addie (16mo) decided lunch time was over and while her brothers were both watching cartoons she picked up their lunch bowls, still with food in them, and put away the trays! All without the boys even noticing until she was done.
This morning we all woke up to snow in the High Desert of California, which does not happen every often! My poor dessert babies thought it was the coolest thing ever!
After their short snow adventure we came back in side for hot chocolate. It was way too cold to stay outside for a long period of time! I felt really bad though.
The one year we don’t buy the kids’ winter jackets is the one year it snowed. At least they have boots! It hasn’t snowed like this in 3 years! We’re in Barstow and it gets much worse the further towards the Cajun Pass.
The sun is out and most of it is gone now.
