I work at a Nursing Home and there is a Children's Daycare there as well. I have two children that attend the daycare and come to work with me daily. Unfortunately, the daycare was closed early today allowing the teachers to attend a statewide conference for daycare teachers. I took a half a day off today to spend the afternoon with my three kids. My first grader also had a half-day today.
Well, we ate our way through the afternoon to say the least. They had all eaten at daycare or school and when I got home, I hadn't eaten lunch yet. I made a great lunch, a cod fillet, mushrooms and carrots, a cheesy potato and yogurt. Really was a low-point lunch. It was after lunch when the troubles started. My kids were looking for something to eat every 5 minutes. They ate popcorn, crackers, jello, yogurt, fruit snacks and finally we made peanut butter cookies.
Ah! The smell of those cookies haunted me. I did very well. I ate two cookies and my kids each ate a few and after dinner, I took them outside and offered them to our neighbors. I don't think we've ever offered our neighbors food before, so it was nice to be able to share the "fat."
Not a bad day, for being home most of the day alone with the kids.
