I've been trying really hard to keep on top of the dishes situation. So I've been washing a whole lot. Trying to clear out the sinks and wipe down the counters every night before I go to sleep.
This funny kid. He was displeased about the fact that the new gan has a huge sand-pit area in the yard outside. He is really not a fan. But he's a master of solving problems - and realized that if he wears sneakers instead of sandals that sand doesn't go in his shoes when he walks in the yard. Z was taken aback when the kid requested his sneakers - but it really makes perfect sense.
Yesterday at pickup the teachers actually cornered me about his lunches. I was a tad nervous when they said 'we need to ask you a question about the lunches you've been sending' - but then they launched into praise about the cute-ness level of the rolls and how they all want the recipe and are all curious how I get the rolls to be so soft.
I was decidedly amused and told them that I would happily share the recipe with them. Just as soon as I've translated it.
In the meantime I'm thinking about cooking up the apple pie filling for apple turnovers just to get them done and out of the way.
Abe is coming for Shabbos and Sunday night is already Rosh Hashana. It's craaaaziness.
