A couple of weeks ago, Shrike and I established Sunday as Mama's Sleep-In Day, since I usually get up with Peeper and let her sleep because she has to go to work and be alert (not so much for working as for the drive home!) past midnight.
- Replaced 1 cup white flour with 1 cup whole wheat flour
- Replaced 1/3 cup white sugar with a scant 2 Tbs stevia and heaping 2 Tbs brown sugar
- Replaced 1 cup milk with 3/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- Replaced 1/4 cup oil with 1 banana, mashed
We pretty much just hung out the rest of the day, and I even took a little nap on the couch.
Peeper, of course, found plenty of ways to keep herself entertained.
This is a much more elaborate version of the drum kit that woke Mommy up.
This whole "dancing elephant" thing comes from an episode of Micky Mouse Clubhouse.
"Get out, and stay out!"
She thought this was the funniest thing ever.
It was Peeper's idea to build Lego stairs, but Shrike helped with the actual construction (they kept falling apart and really frustrating Peeper) and I'm not sure whose idea it was to install them in the castle.
And one more concert before bed. Xylophone, this time.
She was saying, "Do you want to hear some notes? Okay!" so I asked, "Who are you talking to?"
I figured it would be Baby Bear or Mickey Mouse or Rapunzel, or one of the many characters that she interacts with on a regular basis, but she just said, "Myself!"
Oh, okay then. Sorry to interrupt.
