I’ve tried everything to get Ember to drink something other than breastmilk all the time. Luckily the girl loves to drink water but milks of any kind? No way. I even tried adding chocolate syrup to her milk thinking that would surely get her to gulp some down. (Payson got chocolate in his rice milk too, of course!)
I get really bored really fast stuck at home. Really bored. We spent some time putting on tattoos and the kids used two boxes of bandaids on pretend owies.
We made a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and I called the kids in, “Payson, Ember, I need your help!!” When they come running in I always ask them, “Can you please clean this spoon for me?” And hand them a chocolatey spoon. The older girls know, if I call for help from the kitchen there’s going to be something sweet involved.
