This is our after school routine ……
My girls walk in from school and they get a little treat.
They’re still hungry so we open a bag of carrots and I slice up a few apples.
My oldest announces that she needs something a bit more filling as she pops half a bagel in the toaster and grabs the cream cheese ……
………. as my nearly non-verbal youngest struggles to get out the sentence: I.Want.Salad.And.A.Dressing.Please. Considering how hard she worked to say that sentence she‘s going to get a salad …….
………and my oldest sees me slicing cucumbers and realizes cukes and vinegar would go well with her half bagel……..
…….then she reminds me that we have fresh spinach for her little sister’s salad.
By the time we have the kitchen all cleaned up it’s 4:30 in the afternoon and I say “So what do we want for dinner” and Ice Cream seems appropriate.
