...throw your hands up at me!

So, I'm trying to follow the suggestion to encourage my kids to be independent. Its so messy. I usually do let Theo go for it, but yogurt has been under my control until this week. I was preparing to feed Suvi carrots, when Theo got a horrible look on his face. I walked around the table to comfort him and Prec' reached out and touched something! Good girl. Eat those carrots.
I bought some raspberry tea to help with my female functions, but I'm too crabby to make it. I feel like an alien has taken hold of my innards; meanwhile a heavy, wet wool blanket has been planted on my brain. Go away, crabby hormones, come back gregarious, charitable sunshine of a dream girl (okay, maybe I am not that 'up' on a usual day, but I am close). I think my husband would welcome back the other Jenny with open arms. Wouldn't you? WELL?
Perhaps it is tea time.

Did Prec' get any carrots in her mouth?

Raspberry tea is good for us girls? I'm going to try that next...uh...month! ;) Seriously.

hmmmm .. I'm tempted to tell you what I've been doing. It involves water, eggs, raw cane sugar, and sake. I got the idea from my Chinese Medicine book and it seems to work nicely, though my innards don't usually put up too much of a fuss. :-)

l: she did get some in her mouth, but I fed her with a spoon the tiny bit left in the container!
j: I really like it. i put splenda in it once, but it doesn't really need sweetener.
E: email me with the potion!
Jan; see how smart you are? :)
