3 Days Naked- a three year old with the flu

My three year old go the flu-like bug that's been going around. Oy, it's just beyond awful. I had it last week but in kids instead of just aches and pains, it has been a full 6 days of fever *plus* a cough and cold.

After one day home with a fever, she took off all her clothes and declared, "I need to be naked. Clothes don't feel good on my body". And so passed 36 hours...

We finally wrangled her into clothes with the inducement of seeing her grandparents, so she wore clothes for about 4 hours on Sunday, then took them off and went back to all natural:)

Monday morning, she declared it, "a naked day". Totally fine, I just kept hoping that even though she's potty trained, that she wouldn't have an accident while napping on our leather living room couch in the middle of the day.

Yesterday, she went to Ikea wearing shoes, socks, underwear and a raincoat...

Then finally, finally, this morning, she got fully dressed and agreed to go to preschool. Also, she wanted to "go to the place with all the beautiful things and the toothbrushes" (the dentist).

I'm hoping that when I pick her up from preschool in half an hour that she has remained clothed! Pin It

What to Do With Leftover Baby Food

It's possible, that like baby Yoyo, your child made a very quick transition from the pureed baby food....

What to do with extra baby food

to what we call "people food".

So, before I knew it, I was left with tons and tons of purees that my baby won't touch, preferring instead, scrambled eggs, avocados, turkey bacon (he loves to suck on anything salty), beans and rice, chicken...

I've written before about what to do with the glass baby food jars. With our third child, I was having an eco-friendly moment and turned the glass jars into mason jar sippers, gilded vases, painted votives...

Alas, with the 4th baby came not only a return to plastic containers of baby food, but also any crafting desire I had before is now gone. Cooking and baking are still high up on my list of things that I don't delegate (see how I decide, refuse, and delegate here).

My favorite recipes to make with baby food:

Banana Bread

Carrot cake (yummy, smooth, no weird textural issues)

Spagetti sauce (there is possibly nothing else to do with leftover green beans, just throw a little in)
