I’ve been asked the following questions recently, and I’m sure many of you have the same concerns but were too polite to vocalize them. So as a public service, I will answer them here:
Question: Could you dress Mackenzie in any more pink?
Probably not. But we were given (generously) nearly everything she wears and besides, it compliments her skin tone.
Ok, ok.. the real reason for all the pink is that last time I dressed her in jeans and a non-pink tshirt, someone said “he looks just like his daddy!”
We can’t have that.
Question: How come you call your daughter a worm? That’s not very nice.
Answer: Technically we call her “a bit wormy” and we mean it in the cutest way possible. It all started when Scott caught the following on camera at our church’s annual chili/chocolate cook-off/pinewood derby:
Our dear girl has 3, possibly 4 chins. Who knew? As if that weren’t enough… the other day I was talking on the phone and I glanced behind me to check on Kenzie and she was lying 180 degrees opposite of how I’d put her down. I watched in amazement as she methodically lifted her bum in the air and flung out her legs, thus “inching” her way around in a full circle. Now, a week later, she is an accomplished inch worm and will lie on her back and happily scootch backwards.
Question: Don’t you think it was a poor decision to put Scott in charge of layering the ratatouille you made for dinner? I mean, he is picky about how towels and socks are folded. One might even call him “fastidious”.
Answer: Well, dinner was a bit late that night, but it brought him such joy. 🙂
Note: This is not an ordinary sized pan. This is a Bean-sized pan. As in, enough of a pan to feed a large family for a week. This particular ratatouille is so yummy that we demolished it in two days, however.
We based it on this recipe but we improvised a lot, using however many of the called-for veggies we had on hand. We served it over whole wheat couscous. It’s super simple (unless you are Scott and you worry about the alignment of eggplant relative to zucchini). 🙂
Question: Doesn’t Mackenzie sometimes object to all these photos being taken?
Question: Are you just making up questions as an excuse to post more pictures?
Did I mention the delicious spicy peanut and eggplant stew Scott whipped up last week, from Veganomicon? 🙂
