Big Big Mess

 Ryder loves milk. He also loves nutter butter cookies and snacks on them all the time. He is also a very early riser, so a lot of times when he wakes up, I will bring him in to our room.  I will lay on the couch and try and snooze a little bit while he plays. Well one morning, he really had fun making a mess with his milk and some nutter butters. When I saw what he had done I said he had made a "big big mess."  He then kept repeating that while pointing at the mess. The next day, he got into a drawer in the kitchen that i did not realize he could reach yet.  He pulled out a box of toothpicks and emptied all 1500 of them on the kitchen floor. While we were picking them up, he kept saying, "No No. Big big mess!" He actually says "big big mess" all the time now, even when it's just a small mess.

Valentines Day

 Our Valentines Day was very low key this year. When Kevin came home from school, I gave him his presents which were Chex Mix and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Ryder's presents were a box of fruit snacks, a Thomas the Train book, and a monster truck. We gave Ryder a bath and got him down for the night. Then we had a candlelit dinner complete with some Martinelli's bubbly. It was nice to have a quiet dinner after Ryder was asleep and just be able to talk and relax without Kevin having to rush to go study. For dessert, I made one of my favorite desserts, creme brulee. It was really good! After dessert, he did have to study for the rest of the night, but I'm glad we got to spend some time together!
