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.

Homemade Coffee Soap

Every year, K’s cousins do a Secret Santa exchange for Christmas. Some years there are themes. This past Christmas, the theme was homemade gifts. I slightly cheated by buying a few gifts for my person as well, but that was partially because she made a list. So, I got her a book she wanted, along with mugs that coordinated with the book. But I also picked the mugs since I decided to make her coffee soap.

Topic-Changing Thursdays: Family Meal with Matzo Ball Soup

Last month K had to do a work trip. Since I knew about it ahead of time I asked my dad and M if they wanted to come hang with me and the kiddos to help out. Sure enough, they were able to come and we got almost a week with them! It was great. One of the nights they wanted to make matzo ball soup using M’s family recipe. The Fudgelet was super excited to help make the matzo balls. They started the soup in the morning and then after the Fudgelet had school, they made the balls. He couldn’t roll them into balls but did the scooping and filling. Earlier in the day I had the realization that I could contribute, too! I had made challah bread the previous month and it made two loaves, so I had frozen one. This was the perfect time to pull it out and share.
