In further addendum, this afternoon Matthew took a poo. I guess his underwear were dirty, because he went upstairs with a bare bum to grab some new underwear out of his drawer, sat on his foot, then walked on the rug. Presto! Poop on rug. Ack.
And I made applesauce today and canned it, but forgot to put lemon juice in the second batch. Lemon juice is essential for the proper acidity to preserve canned applesauce, so I have to re-process that entire batch tomorrow. Double Ack.
Here are some cute pix, though! And these were apples from my uncle's farm, fully au natural (no pesticides), processed by me with no sugar, and these apples have never touched a particle of plastic. So this is about the healthiest food my family has ever eaten! Also: applesauce is TIME CONSUMING. Lots of finnicky stuff. Peeling, coring, mashing, etc. It was all worth it when at dessert both boys announced that "You make the best applesauce in the whole world, mommy!"
Yes. I. Do.
