Mamalicious Monday

Do your kids like eating soup? Mine LOVE to eat chicken noodle soup. When I asked my son what he wanted to take to school for lunch on his first day this year, he said soup. Which I found odd because it is really warm here in the beginning of September. When he started kindergarten a couple years ago I bought him a thermos bowl thing so I can send him to school with soup. I think my kids love to eat soup because they get to eat it with a straw. Yep, every time they eat it I give them a straw. I have learned though, that loopie loop straws are no good because the noodles get stuck. The bigger fatter plastic ones work great. For my daughter I cut one of the McDonald's straws in half. She gets so excited to use the straw.I also want to let everyone know that on this Thursday, I will be donating all of my proceeds from my daisy necklace to the Cora's Playground Fund. There is still time to donate and buy etsy items that were made for this cause. Click on the link on my side bar and it will take you to all the Cora Paige items on etsy. I plan on selling the daisy necklaces until all I made for this cause are gone. Cora's mom has set up her own etsy shop, go on over HERE and check it out. The reason we picked Thursday, March 5th to donate is because it's a special would have been Cora's first birthday.

The weird thing is March 5th also happens to my husband's 35th birthday.

Oh how cute! That reminds me... I should make some soup for my girls. They are huge soup junkies, too. I'm sure they would like it even more if I give them a straw. And I love soup because its so easy to hide veggies in. I buy jars of baby food (carrots and sweet potatoes are my favorite to buy) and then mix them into the chicken broth. Shhhh... no one will ever know that the yummy sweet taste is really sweet potatoes!
