Ripe bananas and blueberries are covered by a cinnamon crumb topping in this blueberry banana bread.
Yesterday marked day 2 of Spring break for the kiddos. It also marked the second pajama and movie day at the Grant house as well. For some reason I thought I would be all kinds of productive while the kids were out of school this week. I even planned a few crafts and some recipes for us to do. I’m here to tell you that pretty much none of that has happened.
I did however binge watch the full first season of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt with Avery. So I’ll count that as a win.
Ryley asked me “Are we going to school today?” I said no, not today. You would have thought I told her all her Shopkins disappeared. She was super bummed that she had to spend another day away from school. She doesn’t understand yet that Spring break is a whole week. I don’t have the heart to tell her that part yet.
She just keeps naming all her friends in class between watching cartoons and torturing her brother.
I know it’s silly but I didn’t realize how much we all got used to our little routine. And by routine I mean wake up late, brush the kids teeth/hair, and toss them breakfast as we are walking out the door sometimes without shoes. (cough Avery cough). I’m not a morning person so we tend to toe the line on being on time and late in to school most days. I just assumed that I would still be as productive during the week minus the rush of getting everyone out the door.
That’s totally not the case at all.
Not having to wake up at a certain time has just made us all lazier and groggier. If that is even possible. I’m actually looking forward to getting back into our crazy morning routines next week. I mean, I’ll have to wear real pants again, but at least I might have some hope of being productive.
