A lot has happened for Little in the past few months.
We have moved
She has started preschool
Which means she is not playing with her nanny
Mama has had to work more
Daddy has had to work in a different city sometimes.
Pretty much her whole world got turned upside down.
While it has been tough for me I am an adult and have some coping skills to deal with it. Truth be told even though most of the changes have been positive they are still some times hard. I have been having a rougher time dealing with it then I thought.
Sometimes I’m slow on the uptake but I realized if I am having a hard time coping then what must she be going through?
So finally yesterday I printed out her routines for her. She has had them before. She calls them her maps. Her map of How to get to bed.
I always start with our night routine because it sets up the morning to work well. You can find this one here.
Her map of how to get herself ready in the morning. You can find a morning routine in the same place or you can find this one here.
Litte was really happy to see them. She loves to know what is coming next and loves to feel like she is “in charge” of her getting ready. I choose this morning routine because it had a hair brush on it and that is something Little does not like at all! Already she has seen it and gone over the routine and said that she needs to brush her hair which is a small miracle given usually that is somewhat of a daily battle. I love setting her up for success and not having to nag. All in all a win win!

I am stepping out of my comfort zone and you can see my candle magic video up soon 🙂
Yesterday was jam day at Case de Cielo (which is what I have named my house) and I decided to make an experimental raw jam. It turned out amazing!
I am beyond pleased with it. It’s not overly sweet and the taste of the fruit really came out.
ingredients are fresh fruit
chia seeds (1 tablespoon per one cup of fruit)
How I made it.
I filled up my 6 cup cuisinart with strawberries and one Plout. Little hit the pulse button a few times until we had the right constancy.
We put the processed fruit in a large bowl and added 6 tablespoons of chia seeds in. We also added in what I will guess was maybe half a cup of local honey, and the juice of one lemon from our tree.
we mixed it up with a spoon and put it into jars, and put the jars in the fridge. This morning we had it on toast and it was so yummy!
Good morning all and happy Lugnasadh for those celebrating today!
