I made these egg rolls for dinner. We did NOT like all the ginger! If I make them again I’ll cut back on the ginger. I also made this sweet and sour sauce and we did NOT like the Sriracha! I made another batch the next day to eat the leftover egg rolls with and left out the Sriracha and it was much better! (Those pictures were from Saturday night actually)
Ember was staying away from the kitchen because she hated the smell of the vinegar in the sweet and sour sauce I was making. Allan went up the stairs to cuddle with her and sympathize with her over the horrible smell from the kitchen.
Everett’s getting much braver with that car!! At Christmas and for a good month after he’d cry hysterically if he saw it in the same room with him… even if it was off! Then one day he crawled over to it while it was just sitting there, not in use. He timidly tapped it with a finger. Then he grabbed it. Let go. Then slowly touched it again. Then grabbed it. And ever since I can visibly see his determination to fight his fears with that car. He started being okay with it even when it was on and making SCARY noises (haha)… he’d do this forced laugh and look from family member to family member, searching for confident faces and support. Then he’d force a laugh again and then over time, and days and weeks of exposure, he started having real confidence, realizing the car wasn’t going to hurt him and now he can be in the same room as the car and a sibling can drive the car near him and he’s just fine. He doesn’t like when the car drives right next to him but he doesn’t cry or anything anymore! It’s been fun watching his transformation!
