monday night we made caramel apples after dinner.
i gave the caramel a last stir when i asked
bailey to come in.
i called again... and again. no response.
then i heard the tv going. i hadn't turned it off after
i watched the evening news. i heard dr. phil's voice
and thought, great. what's the topic my 8 yr old is listening to?
i called for bailey again and asked if she had been watching dr. phil.
she walked toward me and started in,
"mom, you're not gonna believe this.
Steve, he just buys tools. he doesn't even use the tools. most of them
are still in their packages. so they are paying for them, while they just
sit on a garage shelf.
now, his wife, annie. (i was laughing inside. talk about regurgitating a conversation.)
she just sits around and doesn't pay any bills; not
for the phone or any other bill..."
i could totally imagine the couple going back and forth -each with his own
version of the story. i wasn't thrilled she caught 5-10 min. of dr. phil, but
i was relieved to hear the content wasn't something more adult. so i
"next time let's not watch dr. phil unless i'm with you, k?"
we ate the treat after family time, but the kids couldn't wait the hour
the caramel needed to set up. it was fun watching the kids try to eat
through the caramel to the apple. i don't think they got more than 2
bites of apple. but they made sure all the caramel was gone.
the apples were a great kick-off for october.
i used this halloween paper.
