for some reason i picked this morning to make applesauce.

it seemed so perfect, so old school.  mother & older boy making homemade goodness while tiny sister sleeps.  but @ some point it all started falling apart in the form of sister refusing to sleep & crying like a banshee while brother kept eating all the apple pieces & needing to get up & down, up & down WITH sticky hands.

and that's when i remembered alot of housewives in the 50s ended up with mental problems or in betty ford.

i know, it seems a little on the dramatic side (what, me??), but seriously, this whole mom-business might put me in the looney bin yet.  who thought it was a good idea for one woman to stay home & take care of multiple children alone??  maybe i'll move to a compound or a kibbutz or something...

anyway, the applesauce is going to turn out well, i think.  i hope.  & i just convinced hudson to go play his "cool, cool drums" for a sec & sis is happy to simply be out of that horrible, awful place we call a crib, so i think i'm going to make it for the next few minutes anyway.

applesauce recipe here, if you're crazy enough to try it, too.

Kelly,
I am seriously laughing out loud....homemeade applesauce with two children is AMAZING, I would probably not attempt it if they were both sleeping and I had zero distractions. Seriously since having children I lack ability to focus, shocking I know :-)
