Weekly Meal Plan #34 {Plus a review and FATHER'S DAY}

I'd like to wish all the Father's (and soon-to-be Fathers) a Happy Father's Day!

This is also a day to remember all the wonderful fathers who are no longer with us on Earth. May they always stay fresh in our memories!

Tea Party Set {Themed Girl Gift}

We are coming into Birthday season for all of Charlotte's little friends, which, if I'm not paying attention, can cost me QUITE a bit.

We joined this mom group when Charlotte was a baby and the mom group's playdates go by age. Therefore naturally all the kids we because close with are Charlotte's age and have birthdays within 3 months of each other. Yikes! Talk about a busy weekend schedule.

So I was wandering around Targets Clearance aisles a while ago and came across these kids tea party set; how perfect for a 3 year old?

I admit, they were kind of plain all by themselves, but personalize and paint-pen a plastic box

and add some "tea party goodies" and you've got the perfect little (cost effective) gift.

Then all you need to do is lay it out cute and organized...

... like put the silverware in a fun little container ...

 and throw crystal light into the teapot...

 ... and VOILA!

What we do with {THIS ONE}?

Now Charlotte, the 3 year old, is SUPER excited about the new baby and the main reason is because she will get to sit in the back row of the car.

We have a Honda Odyssey that we bought brand new, but off the lot, so it was without a lot of perks (like TVs, compass... yes...  I have no directional finder on my car, thermometer... again ugh, etc) including a lack of center middle row seat, but it had leather and it was the right price! Plus, I like that people can easily get to the last row of seats especially now that we have 2 car seats.

The other weekend we carpooled with a friend to a birthday party that we knew was going to have some parking issues and her little friend, Andrew, sat in the 3rd row. Well, Charlotte thought that was the Coolest. Thing. Ever! AND ever since I told her that there was a new baby was coming and she was going to be a big girl and sit in the back seat, she's been ecstatic and brings it up at all times!

Let's jump ahead to the other day on the way to Disney...
The girls and I were in the bathroom at a gas station and Charlotte just starts babbling... here is the conversation that follows:

C: There's a baby coming.
Me: Yes, Charlotte
C: Then (all proud) I get to sit in the back, in a BIG girl seat and.. and..
Me: Yes Charlotte, you will sit in the back row...
C: ... where Andrew sat! And we will get a baby seat in the car, and I get a BIG seat...
Me: Yes...
C: ... that's so fun. (long pause) So there be two babies...
Me: Oh no hunny, there's just one baby (pointing to my stomach).
C: Just one? (offhandedly pointing to her sister) What we do with THIS one?
Of course I start cracking up at the Charlotte asking me if we are getting rid of Jillian. Her beloved best friend, only sister in the world, and buddy.
Me: Oh no, hunny.... we are not getting rid of sissy.
C: Sissy... baby?
Me: Well sissy will be a bigger girl then, she won't be a baby anymore. So it'll be you, sissy, and the baby.
C:.... oh.... ok

At least she is kind of concerned with the thought of mommy getting rid of her sister.

Kids say the cutest things sometimes!

{Pinned there, Done that} Experiment Night

So a while back I pinned this how-to on making soap clouds over at Out Best Bites. I chose a night when hubby would be working late and decided it would be a great time for a little experiment.

Before: Bar of Ivory Soap
Toss in the (dirty) microwave (on parchment paper or something) for 2 minutes

After: Soap Cloud

We then went immediately to the bath tub where I "made it snow" and the girls lathered themselves with soap. I must say, though, that the water nearly turned white so I turned the water on and rinsed them with fresh water.

Fun times had by all!
