Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Chiplet is 18 Months Old!

Hello hello. It is time to update you on the last 2 months with the Chiplet! He has still been causing quite the stir here. Sometimes he is super sweet and snuggly, and other times he is throwing food and heavy objects. So, you know, all the fun parts of a toddler. He still causes just as much worry as when he was a baby, if not more. I read a post the other day that newborns are the best and it only gets worse. I don’t know if I agree with that completely but I do feel that there are ups and downs with all of the ages. I do like that he can express himself even if I don’t always understand him completely.

As I write this, I have no working oven. I had someone come yesterday…and all they did was damage the screws that held the oven into the wall. So then I had to have a different person tackle the screws so that tomorrow the first person can come back and hopefully repair the oven. Because I really do miss it. I’ve been terribly sick all week with a cold and am finally getting better, which means I am finally up to more cooking. Like cakes. I luckily had some cake because I made it shortly before my cold and I couldn’t taste anything so just saved it. But I am running low and I also want to use the oven for other things, like dinner. I have a stove, a microwave, and a toaster, so I am not entirely without appliances, but the oven is making me sad. Fingers crossed it gets repaired, otherwise I will have to wait much longer if it needs to get replaced. In the meantime, I am sharing some recipes I wish I could make.

Fudgelet and Chiplet Adventures (part 22): Snowy Winter

I know we are a month into spring already, but I figured this was as good a time as any to wrap up winter with some pictures. Maybe you will see something of interest for next winter.

Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Chiplet is 16 Months Old!

If you want to refresh your memory from 14 months, here it is. I left off talking about his snuggles, and really he is still like that. He has separation anxiety in such a big way. It started when he was around a year, but it has gotten worse over the last few months. What makes it really bad is he mostly wants me. Even K isn’t enough to appease him sometimes. I think part of it is he sees me as his food source (he doesn’t like to eat much for other people) and his source for sleep, so if he is hungry or tired, he wants to come to me. He also wants to come over to me to check on me and make sure I’m still around and okay. So, all of this to say that he is still quite attached. I’m not worried, though, since I remember the Fudgelet was also quite attached and he has no problem being dropped at school; sometimes, he won’t even say goodbye until I remind him!

I know it is a day late, but I don’t have a new pie recipe to share for pi day. I didn’t want to let the day go by without saying anything, so I decided to do a day after post showing some fun pies I’ve seen. My fingers are crossed right now with the hope that I can make a dairy and/or nut pie for the family and then maybe share it soon. The Chiplet is having more tests done and I really really hope to have some good news. Either way, I will make something circular for us.

Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Fudgelet is 4.5 Years Old!

So, what has changed since last summer? Well, the Fudgelet has been in preschool which is a major change for us. I wasn’t sure how it would go but it has been great for him. Even though he knows most of what they are teaching, he isn’t bored and finds it fun. As of the time I am posting this, I will have had a conference with his teachers to hear about his progress. But, I am writing this ahead of that soooo I am hoping he has been good.

Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Chiplet is 14 Months Old!

So, I thought I was only going to update every 6 months or so now but then I remembered doing every 2 months for a bit with the Fudgelet so I might do that at least for now. I thought of it because I was thinking about all of the advances he has made since I last posted about him…and yet I didn’t get to share it. But now I can! It was fun reading back over the Fudgelet’s post too.
