Today I have a lot of random things on my mind.
Last night I was feeling overwhelmed by all the different things and areas of my life that I struggle to balance throughout the week. I wrote them all down in no particular order to clear my mind and realized that I had put God at the bottom and my husband never even made it to the list. Then I was feeling bad. So today I think for myself I need to write down all the areas again but in a priority order. That way when I feel overwhelmed again I can look at my list and pick something to work on.
Okay so on my list was to make more food from scratch. I'm trying to move towards a healthier lifestyle (not that we were all that bad). Once I got into my mind that our activity of the day was to bake, we were very relaxed and not rushed about it. TJ had a great time driving the ingredients to me with his truck. He scooped, measured and had so much fun. We made a double batch of the dry ingredients (our our muffin mix) for next time. He loved to bake so I think this is going to be fun. I usually go all out with an idea and give up because it is a lot of work. I'm going to go slowly with one food at a time. I welcome your recipes or suggestions here.
My last thing today is a problem I have with TJ. I really need advice !! TJ eats play dough.
Ever since he was a baby he has eaten play dough, paint, glue, sand, gravel, dirt... He is starting to outgrow it now. When he was really little he'd eat things as a way of telling me he was done because I'd get upset and take it away. I gave up on the paint and let him eat it, now he doesn't do it anymore. I have asked nicely, explained why he shouldn't, given a time out, threatened to throw out the play dough but nothing works. Should I just let him eat it and see if he gives up one day?
Thanks for reading. Looking forward to some comments.
