Just a Box

The best toy in the world? Yes- the famous box. Will and I have been bad parents- and not keeping most of the boxes that we have had.

This was by accidental  – we were rounding up the boxes to place in our recycle bin by the door. Then I walked by and saw Xander playing in it. So lucky to have captured the picture just in time!

What else does your kids play with that are naturally free around the house? Chairs? Cabinets? Why do we even need toys?

 

Bullet Proof Coffee

I also add Splenda to my coffee

Probably the most delicious coffee ever. 

Recipe: 

Coffee

1 tbsp coconut oil 

1 tbsp of Kerrygold butter 

2 tbsp heavy cream
Make sure you have a handheld blender to stir it all up, a simple spoon stir is not going to do it!

Here’s the kind that I have: 

Norpro mini Mixer

These are at all local grocery stores usually next to protein blenders and in the coffee aisle. 

If you run around the house like me, I work at home- I reccomend putting your bullet proof coffee in a thermos. With the butter, heavy cream and coconut oil in it, the coffee tends to get colder faster. 

Please let me know how you liked it! 

I will always take a picture with you

There are lots of time I never want my photo taken with Xander. I’m too out of shape, I have no make up on, I’m EXHAUSTED, what exactly am I wearing?, did I even brush my teeth?! Then I realized there are moments that will never happen again, moments that are shared between me and my son that we will always have. Always have a camera around, if you’re ever so lucky to capture those moments, and freeze time.

Everyday I’m getting older, and everyday Xander is getting older. We will never be what we were yesterday. So it doesn’t matter what you look like, TAKE those photos. A picture takes an instant out of time, altering life and holding it still.
