Well, here we are, feet firmly planted into August. How has your summer been so far?
Besides a general theme of uncomfortable, sticky heat (yes, summer, hello, hi), mine has been filled with good things: popsicles, peaches, chubby toddler toes in public wading pools, ferry boats, merry-go-round rides at the zoo, cold wine, flowy shirts, bags of fresh cherries, Moana dance parties, grilled salmon, and a handful of rocky beaches. The usual, you know.
And we’ve only had two instances of toddler food poisoning, and just one semi-bad allergic reaction. Not too shabby!
OH, also, here’s a fun question: anyone know what happens when you accidentally run a (used, yes, ugh) non-cloth diaper through the washing machine?
I don’t really want to talk about it – there is weird chemical gel involved – but let’s just leave it at GROSS, cool?
Let’s get back to the popsicles and the wine and the cherries, okay? Maybe in a bright, tangy baby kale salad with pops of sweet fruit and salty pistachios? There’s still plenty of summer left to grab.
