We have a new form of punishment around here. It involves one messy kitchen floor, one handy SwifferSweeperVac one naughty toddler.




Ha. Just kidding.

Zachariah is at the weird age where he begs to help with stuff. He wants to be included so badly. So by golly, I let him vacuum the kitchen when he asks! And he is actually quite helpful! (Well, with this one thing. The rest of the time he "helps" mommy, its quite the opposite. )


And he is just so darn cute while vacuuming. I mean, seriously. Cuteness is oozing out everywhere.


And I will frequently catch him making the noise of the Swiffer during the vacuuming process. Not like you can really hear him, but seeing him do it cracks me up.


And after a hard couple minuets work, he comes and tells me all about what he has accomplished. What a cutie patootie.

Now, if only I could get him to do the dishes...

This is Z's giraffe blanket. I thought it was a bit weird at first, and I would get weird looks from people who haven't seen these before. But its actually pretty cool. It is a giraffe stuffed animal and a mini-blanket all in one.

Zachariah actually picked this little friend out at Target when he was about 6 or 7 months old. We were walking around in the baby section and he pointed to this blanket. So what did I do? I bought it. And boy am I glad I did. This is one of the two items that Zachariah will NOT sleep without (the other being his blanket). Since the day it came home with us, it has been a staple for nap time and bed time. Mr. Giraffe Blanket is also the recipient of a good bit of Zachariah's hugs and kisses.

Can you tell that he adores this thing?? :)

Happy Monday!

I'm a wife

I'm a pretty good wife, if I do say so myself.  I'm just not a very good housewife.  OK, I'm a horrible housewife.  I don't do the dishes.  I rarely do the laundry, and the only time my house is truly clean is the day the exterminator comes.  Fortunately my husband is a neat-freak who needs to be needed.  So he is constantly picking up the slack, and for that I am forever grateful. :)

I'm a mom

I have two boys, Zachariah (age five) and Micaiah (age two). They are both sweet, ridiculously smart, hilarious and just all around awesome. Being a Mama to these boys is THE best thing in the world. I love them both to pieces and I thank God for allowing me to be their Mom!

I'm a (re)cook

My mom is a true southern cook.  Everything is from scratch and is her great-grandmothers recipe.  I'm a (re)cook.  Everything I make is really good, but I probably got it from the Pioneer Woman.  When it comes to cooking, I want to be super healthy but my taste buds keep getting in the way.

I'm a homeschooler

My siblings and I were home schooled for a few years in elementary school, so for as long as I can remember I just grew up assuming I would homeschool my own children. Thankfully I have been able to do just that! We are about to complete our first official year of homeschooling, so I still consider myself a newbie, but I am loving it so far. Hopefully I can get into the habit of sharing a few tips and tricks that I have found helpful in our homeschooling journey!

 
Zucchini Fritters PDF Print E-mail

Since Zachariah is eating nothing but table foods, I have had to be a bit creative. I don't want to feed him fruit and yogurt for the rest of his life... so I am forced to actually use my noodle. Here is one of mine and Z's favorites. I call them Zucchini Fritters. My mom made them all the time when I was growing up and they are yummy! I don't even necessarily like zucchini, so if you are not a veggie fan, no worries. You can hardly taste it. Here ya go!

Zucchini
Fritters
1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour
1 cup of shredded cheese
1 cup of milk
1 cup of shredded zucchini (one medium sized zucchini)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
A couple shakes of garlic powder  

Preheat oven to 375. Mix up all ingredients and spoon into muffin pan. Bake for 20 minutes (or until lightly golden on top). Makes about 18 fritters... depending on how full you get the muffin cups.

Note: -If you want to change it up a bit, you can add a cup of squash, or carrots or some other veggie along with the Zucchini (Zachariah likes squash and zucchini in his). - These are really easy to freeze. I freeze half of them so that I don't have to bake them as often.

Enjoy! Let me know if you make them and what kinof veggies you use!
