Trying Thursdays: Pancakes and Toddlers

This week has had a few interesting moments for sure.  First off, this week was National Pancake Week and while my plan was to make pancakes every morning, yeah, that didn’t happen.  I did however manage to try out a new recipe for Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes.  It was super easy and yummy, I’m posting the actual recipe tomorrow in the Finicky Feeding Fridays post, but just as a teaser think chocolate hazelnut spread, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips… YUM!!!

We have had our share of trying toddler moments as well this week.  Being on schedule definitely helps to avoid tantrums, and naps help tons too.  We have been doing lots of going lately which means Kira misses naps and that means we have meltdown central.  We have however discovered that she will go to her room when told to and calm down and start playing with her toys in there which gives everyone a break and chance to calm down, this is awesome and I am so very thankful for this.  I also have found a few things she has recently started enjoying (bath time and book time are among them) and these help the evening go more smoothly when she is starting to get beyond tired.  Gotta love the “Trying Toddler” years.
