Riley and Davis at Silver Dollar City

Riley and Davis at Silver Dollar City

I love pop ice.  I know that I love pop ice, so I almost never buy them, because I don't share well and it would make me really mad if the kids asked for them.  Knowing this, I have 2 boxes in the freezer.  And it may just be that sharing them is better than going without myself.  And that brings me to a question, why haven't they made those calorie free yet?

What do your kids eat for breakfast?  My kids are super weird at breakfast time.  Davis would rather have a bologna sandwich than most anything else.  Riley likes applesauce.  Both of them abhor eggs.  And if we happen to be going out to eat for the most important meal of the day, they always choose Steak and Shake because they can get a cheeseburger.  They will eat cereal, but not with milk. And they usually prefer it in the afternoon. 

Both kids have rapidly approaching birthdays.  I have no gifts for either of them yet.  And really no good ideas either.  Davis asked for an ax, so he is no help.  And Riley asked to go on an airplane, so she is no help.  Hopefully some cheaply made plastic toy catches their attention soon (that was sarcasm...)

We are 25 days from embarking on our first family roadtrip.  I feel ill prepared despite the lengthy spreadsheet to organize our packing and the fact that the first few bags already have a few items in them.  I hope the Great Smoky Mountains are in fact peaceful, because the 10 hour drive to get there is sure to have my nerves on edge. 

I am worried about Riley.  Everyday when I am at work I leave a to-do list for her.  And she gets up every morning and does all of the things on it immediately.  Each day I try to make the list longer and longer, and everyday she has all the tasks crossed off before noon.  Today one of her chores was to write a letter and another was to read three books (yep done before noon, along with all of the cleaning).  Maybe tomorrow I should make the task "memorize multiplication tables".  I don't get why she doesn't procrastinate.  Seriously. 

I have great optimism for our tomato plants this year, but I don't understand why the dang tomatoes won't just go ahead and ripen!  The plants have a wonderfully healthy appearance, and a ton of blooms and green tomatoes.  But not even the tiniest pinch of pink or red.  Not even the Early Girl.  Sigh.
