Yesterday, Syd and I took a short trip to the mall. We rode the carousel, the train, drank a strawberries and cream from SB (of course) and stopped by Bath & Body. With Hannah Banana in mind, I let Sydney pick out a few things to girly herself up. She was just thrilled. It was so nice to see her smiling (IN MY DIRECTION)! It was absolute bliss.
I know you all have probably seen the Hidden Valley Ranch commercial where all the kids are devouring their vegetables, eating giant bowls of salad and playing games for veggie dippers. Well, Syd hasn't shown much interest in ranch, but last night she asked to try our "leaves". We assumed she would just spit it out and move on, but to our surprise, she asked for her own. The salad dressing of choice last night was Brianna's Blush Vinaigrette (one of my favorites). I was stunned. My kid was eating salad! I already had her convinced that sweet potatoes or butternut squash mixed with cinnamon and sugar is "pie," but now I get to add salad too! WOW!
I got a sweet package from Tib today! Thanks so much! :) We really appreciate it. Marc picked up the package and said, "Who do we know in Vermont?" Ha ha! :) Silly silly. Thank you again.
Well, it is 8:19pm and I have got to run and eat dinner. Then I will throw myself into bed and hope to get some sleep before little Nathan starts his evening.
