So I went to get my kids ready for school (which thanks to Mr. Day Light Savings Time it has been rough to say the least) and my second son asked “Mom, why are you talking to us in a grumpy voice?” Yep. That was the wake up call I needed to realize that my kids have been getting the short end of the stick. While I have been working on my “project” night and day, they have been getting the “leftover” me. The tired, and yes, grumpy me. So I decided to make a surprise while the 2 oldest were at school. I made rainbow bread!
My boys are OBSESSED with St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t get it to be honest. But they love it. I haven’t decorated. I didn’t make them a green breakfast, I didn’t even wear green today. So they were happy to come home and get a St. Patty’s Day surprise from me :) I separated the dough into 6 balls. The my 4 year old an I worked the food coloring into it by squishing it. It took awhile but it was like playing with clay so it entertained him the whole time. Then I rolled each color flat and stacked them up. The I rolled it up so it looked like a loaf of bread and stuck it in the bread pan to rise again.
See, I told you. Obsessed. This is how they went to school! They hate posing for things like this by the way. They are always like “Mom, why can’t we just eat it???”
Well, I didn’t get much done today besides this. But I am also not speaking in a grumpy voice either :)
