We made a little family venture to Krispy Kreme Saturday morning and enjoyed some of the best doughnuts around. This Saturday morning jaunt has been a regular occurrence with Jay and the girls where they leave early (sometimes to Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robins for ice cream for breakfast...and we wonder who the girls' favorite parent is???) and come home cranky from sugar overload. Then they crash on the couch and watch hours of cartoons while resting off the sugar crash...makes a GREAT start to the day. (Totally sarcastic there...I am notorious for being the healthier parent, thus making me the least fun. Toad. (trying out a new word there instead of "Beast". Let me know what you think. Catchy? Very toadalicious? You know you love it. It's so toad.))
Nafey had his first taste of fried sugary goodness, and by "taste" I mean that he ate 3/4 of the doughnut. He obviously thought it was so toad. Okay, okay...I'll stop.
Ummm, can the girls get anymore ragamuffinish? Totally Saturday morning stuff. I gave them the option of brushing their hair or wearing a hat. Guess which option they chose. Obviously, the hats were shed as they started bouncing around with the sugar jitters...these are totally the moments we will remember for years to come.
And here is the look of a full blown sugar crash...
Just because I once said that I would never have a kid that screamed all of the time for no reason at all, I have indeed been blessed with a kid that screams all of the time for no reason at all. The girls never did it this much, and I am a bit perplexed on what to do about it. Nate screams when he is happy, mad, playing, tired...yeah, pretty much with every emotion. It goes hand in hand with his manhoodliness episodes of hitting everything. Kind of like a primal yell that this is his territory and he needs to let everyone know.
It's driving me batty.
Even Emma will stand with her hands on her hips and reprimand, "Don't you scream at me, Nafey!" And he will give her the biggest smile ever...and then scream in delight that she is paying him some attention. Toad.
