Rather Random Ramblings

Quite a few rather random thoughts....

Brennan (5) loves to fish! While at grandma and papa's last week he spent a minimum of 3 hours, each day, fishing. Papa is always down by the pond with him, but he's learning to do most everything on this own. It's great to watch him do something that makes him so happy. He's so focused and calm and I love the look on his face when he reels one in!

Speaking of Brennan, he's our "strong willed" child. We have a feeling he's border-line ADHD. I've been doing lots of research and we're starting him on a preservative/additive free diet. Or at least very minimal preservatives. There is so much info out there and it's all so confusing! But we feel like this is something we should try. My grocery shopping yesterday took me 2.5 hours....uggg, that's lots of label reading! If any of you out there have any tips, please let me know.

I made bread yesterday. I realized I'd never made bread in this house, which means it's been at least 16 months since I last made homemade bread...yikes. We ate an entire loaf last night....so yummy!!

Tyler and I had an "in home date night" last night. We put the kids in bed at 7:30, made dinner and actually talked to each other as we ate. KC strips, crash hot potatoes, asparagus and a bottle of red wine. I don't know why we don't do this more often. By the way, I've got the best husband in the world. I literally married my dream-boy.

Yesterday I picked up my CSA veges. We got beautiful red rasberries! Well these rasberries came in a plastic-looking container. They told me the container was made from corn (how in the world?!?!) and that it was reusable and compost-able. So I figured after I had used it a few times I'd throw it in our compost pile. What they didn't tell me is that it was NOT dishwasher safe. Here's what it looked like this morning....

Well, there you go. Random Ramblings from my head to yours. Thanks for "listening".

I am curious as to what signs you have been noticing for ADHD? I admire your "natural" approach to this. Keep me updated on how the diet switch goes.
PS Those potato things look good!!!

I love Calvin in the top picture. He's not so sure about this whole thing. Brennan on the other hand is smiling his face off.
