five on friday

{1} So Edith is frequently asking me to sing her a new lullaby before bed. I'll be honest, I'm tired and by 8 pm totally mentally fried. So when T-Pain's "Buy You a Drank" popped into my mind one night, I modified it slightly and played it off as toddler appropriate. Naturally, it quickly became both Edith and Elden's favorite lullaby, so they now have the words memorized. #unconventionallullaby #momoftheyear

{2} I shared a few thoughts about the #walkout protest yesterday.

{3} Elden is hands down my pickiest eater. Edith is always willing to try new things but has many favorites she falls back on. They love chicken nuggets, but only the frozen kind, never any homemade varieties I attempt. I've been searching for a healthier alternative and when I saw these Kidfresh meatballs in the Target frozen section I decided to give it a shot. The verdict is in: my kids are obsessed. Now the next step is minimizing processed foods all together.

{4} Etta has been particularly clingy and challenging lately. She loves to hit when she isn't getting her way. She thinks all animals are called "Pip." She loves accessories arguably more than Edith.

{5} In case anyone is in the market, the Silhouette Portrait 2 Starter Bundle is on sale on Amazon today - $139.99 (normally $200+)!

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!


  1. I'll have to try those chicken meatballs for my niece and nephew. I watch them two days a week and I'm trying to get them to eat healthier, but they're currently obsessed with processed foods.

    1. If you use the Ibotta app make sure you check it first! There was a $1.30 rebate per package (up to 5 per receipt) when I went last night!
