Not me. I would never let my food-phobic toddler munch on strawberries while we picked strawberries. Nope, not me.
Don’t ask me…I only took the photo.
And this sums up exactly how Apollo felt about the whole strawberry-picking thing.
While Apollo is doing much better overall now that we can tube-feed him, he still has a lot of bad days (and even more bad nights). He cried most of our strawberry-picking time and once home wouldn’t let me put him down. The upside of this means Iris, Judah, Tilly, Enoch, and Kalina took care of the berries from start to finish. They: washed, sliced, froze, mushed, made jam, and cleaned up the mess. All with zero help from me!
Here’s a tip for you new(er) moms: let your toddlers and preschoolers help in the kitchen. It will pay large dividends in the end. I promise.
Today is Judah’s 15th birthday. Crazy. He isn’t having a party for a few more days, so expect more on the topic then.
My teens are participating in Blimey Cow’s 72-Hour Film Festival. If you aren’t familiar with Blimey Cow, you should check them out. It’s a couple of formerly homeschooled boys who make hilarious short comedy videos. If you are Christian, you will find these particularly funny.
Wish my kiddos luck, and look for a link to the video when they’re done.
