Welcome spring

The day didn't start out so great. I was up most of the night with a boy who had a tummy ache. It wasn't too bad until he suddenly developed a rash on his torso and Benadryl made him throw up. At 5:30am, I headed out to the few 24-hour stores to get chewables. I forgot that it was the morning after a holiday and they were all closed until 7am.

He had fallen back to sleep while I was gone the first time and when I got back from a second trip out, the rash was gone. My outing wasn't in vain. These beauties were with the rest of the Easter items -- priced at 99¢ a bunch. A little bit of spring sunshine. And they smell great, even all the way across the room.

No, the Peeps below aren't the only candy my boys didn't eat yesterday. They are actually from last year. When the kids took out the plastic Easter eggs last week, these green babies were still safely tucked inside two of them. Rock hard, preserved forever so it seems. Should I pack them back up with the rest of the decorations?

Petrified Peeps LOL! I found a candy coated marshmallow egg that had WARTS! It looked like a witches nose!
We have 3 boys....hope yours is well now and thanks for dropping by!

It's one of the unwritten laws of motherhood--if a kid is going to get sick it will always be on a weekend or holiday. Always!
Hope your little one is feeling better.


P.S. We've found a forgotten chocolate Santa or two in our Christmas stockings.

Since there's nothing natural in the Peeps, they should last till Armageddon, right? Sort of like cockroaches? (ha) Those are gorgeous flowers - glad you found the silver lining in an unpleasant day. :)

My daughter bought herself some Peeps because they said Gluten-Free on them (she has Celiac Disease). She wasn't impressed with the taste - maybe your boys weren't either! I don't think I'd store them just in case cockroaches take a liking to them :-)

Beautiful flowers!
